F2P Summit: Story-driven triple-A games will thrive when sold for free, Ngmoco Sweden manager claims
Ngmoco executive Ben Cousins has made a striking long-term prediction that triple-A games, with budgets perhaps as high as a billion dollars, will shape the future of free-to-play gaming.
Speaking at the inaugural Free to Play Summit in London, Cousins claimed that the freemium model will not forever be synonymous with lowered risks and small budgets.
“I am totally 100 per cent convinced that we will soon have a game like Skyrim that’s free to play,” he said.
He was not speaking on Bethesda's plans specifically, but using Skyrim as an example of the quality people should be expecting.
Cousins said that a single player, story-based, scripted game – the kind that Bethesda has a renowned acumen for – will soon be available for free and monetised through a rich mix of virtual items.
