Well it seems to work for most people, I've just watched some of it... but I think it's a bit hint and miss for many people.

Typo FTW!

Anyway, back to the game... Not really feeling it about the game, permanent-fog is confirmed just varies at different times in thickness. Crafting looks ok and quite robust even at such an early stage.

One thing I don't get is the $20 Early Access fee to a free to play game. You're basically paying to beta test the game which will be free at the end anyway.

Also not sure what Event tickets will entail but I suspect this will be one of the bigger micro-transactions which give you access to server events and no ticket (money) no access.

Quick old man rant incoming...

I can tell you exactly what the $20 Early Access fee is. For F2P games it's probably going to be the 'new normal'.

Too many people nowadays want to play Early Access/Alpha/Beta/whatever (hereafter referred to as 'Beta&#39. They mistakenly believe it's 'the game' and they're entitled to play it.

Some devs will give the Beta away for free - as you say, this is doing an essential part of their work for them. The problem with this nowadays is that you don't get the quality of Beta testers you used to. 5 years ago people who Beta tested did it for the love of it - they didn't mind that there were bugs everywhere, and when they found these bugs they reported them. Now people expect a playable, fun, feature-filled game from the off!

Making people pay a small fee should, in theory, keep away the detritus of the F2P community who would just bitch and whine that the game was 'broken', etc. rather than doing anything constructive. Maybe.

Personally, my favourite current model is the Star Citizen / Kickstarter-style. Buy the game up-front - full price - then get some perks, be that Beta access or some special in-game items. IMO Star Citizen has done it perfectly

TL;DR   Too many people don't respect the Beta nowadays

Gaz you can earn the tickets in game and fog not permanent it has many different weather cycles but they will launch with fall or winter and the cycles are 8 times the speed of real life weather can change daily like real life as long as its with in the boundaries for that season .The cost of early access as hammer said seams to be something that's becoming the norm for good or bad Sony did the same with landmark i suppose its a way you can support the game if you think you are going to like it but if you don't want to get in early you just wait till it launches free the choice is down to the individual.
