Today, Splash Damage announced that rather than simply shuttering Dirty Bomb after ending development, it would remove all monetization from the game and leave it as a 1100% free offering, with no microtransactions, for players to enjoy.

The change will go into effect on January 15, at which time players will be able to pick up all kinds of goodies without having to spend any real cash. In fact, RADs are being removed from the game and those that have any left on their account will be given Credits in their place.

To make sure players accumulate enough credits to purchase items, the devs are also implementing a changed credit earn rate. Finally, for those that may have missed previous items before this change, they are also adding a back catalog.

For a full rundown on Dirty Bomb's changes, hit up the official site.

It's sad to see I don't really had a problem with how they monetize the game it seemed pretty fair to me the game just got boring to me after a while other games like OverWatch and paladins just drew my interest more.

if this is a thing I might play this game... The way they tried to monetize this game was bad they could have thought of many ways of still getting cash flows like maybe just having credit backs instead ??!?!?! just keep it too one type of cash system to create a somewhat fair chance of getting cards to create a more equal experience for f2p players and P2p players.

I mean the way the game played as is the credits earned was so low I am wondering how high they will raise it I mean its fine the game flopped though at least they are still keeping it alive for the time being.

Maybe they'll now stop chasing the lightning in a bottle that was Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory
