PWE on Gigantic Monetization: "There Will Be No Paywall for Heroes"
PWE is known for extremely aggressive monetization. What do you guys have in store for Gigantic?For fans who might be worried about the Xbox One version, you have nothing to worry about as "Microsoft is still our partner. We are exclusive on the Xbox One and will still be one of the first crossplay games with Windows 10. We meet with the same folks this week as we did last year. Not too much has changed on that front. MS has worked with PW previously which made all of this a pretty easy transition for all 3 parties." Motiga's VP of Operations said.
Here's the answer from PWE Communication Manager: Our focus as PWE is to help bring Gigantic to market and make it accessible to the players. To pull back to the curtain some more, our goal with Gigantic and the launch is very strongly focused on fun. Let's partner with Motiga to continue the development of something that we as gamers in the company would be proud of and want to play. Monetization will make sense for the game. Our goal is to not have that be predatory to the core values of the game.
There are several weekend public test planned with both Arc, Windows 10, and Xbox One, slated for early-to-mid summer.
