Fans reacted negatively upon hearing the news that 2013’s Command and Conquer will be a free-to-play multiplayer only title. It looks like EA has changed its battle plan, pre-deployment, by confirming that the game will indeed feature single player content.
Despite the concerns over the free-to-play model, when speaking to The Verge, EA Reps have stated that the single campaign is indeed compatible with the games freemium model. From the sounds of things the single player for Command and Conquer may not come as a complete campaign, but an ever evolving storyline or experience that will change depending on feedback.
Here is what was said in part to The Verge:
“Does that mean it’s not going to have single-player? No, that’s something we’ve obviously heard loud and clear that is important to people. The beauty of free-to-play, is that we can adjust and adapt to what we’re hearing as opposed to, ‘I’m sorry, it’s two months from ship and it is what it is.’ It’s a very different model because you don’t have to build as much. You build in response to your audience.”
