Enlisted Medic

If there's one thing gamers will always have issues with -- and often with good reason -- it's microtransactions. Being "nickel-and-dimed" as a game asks you to buy this for a dollar, that for a buck-fifty, these for five dollars ... it just doesn't feel good, whether the base game is free-to-play or comes with a purchase price.

Darkflow Software and Gaijin Entertainment's F2P World War II shooter Enlisted will be getting a new campaign soon, focusing on the strategically important Soviet city Stalingrad. It will come with all the usual content additions and game improvements one would expect from a major update, but also a major change to monetization that's sure to please the anti-"nickel-and-dime" crowd.

Last week, Gaijin announced that it would no longer sell campaign levels, weapons, soldiers, or any other upgrades for the real-money currency of Gold. Instead, players can purchase a single full-access pack for $29.99 that grants a permanent 4x leveling bonus, as well as upgraded squads and weapons. The pack also contains pre-order bonuses for the Stalingrad campaign, including premium tanker squads and camouflage.

Enlisted is still a free-to-play game, and you can play without buying the pack, though some levels of Stalingrad will be locked behind the purchase. In addition, the Enlisted Twitter account announced today that the "Battle Pass Season has been extended until 23.03." The current pass in the game still only has seven days left, but if the next one really does run until March of next year, that's another fantastic potential bargain.

As for the campaign itself, the Battle for Stalingrad will take soldiers to the iconic Russian city, re-created in fantastic detail by the Enlisted artists and programmers. You can see side-by-side comparisons of real photos and their in-game counterparts in today's showcase article. Flamethrower tanks, bomber runs for Radio Operators, and a new Medic class are also coming to the game in the next update.

Good. That nickel & dime progression system was an abomination.

This game has terrible progression system. I'm not against grinding, it's F2P game after all, but imagine, you have to grind every faction and every campaign separately.... For example if you are "Invasion of Normandy" and grinding that campaign's single side (and trust me you need lots of grinding) and if you are sick and tired and just want to switch to other campaign, troops and whole progression of that campaign is 0. Not lost, just you have to grind them separately.... that is big NOPE for me. Imagine playing some multiplayer game for example, Battlefield 4 so in each and every map requires their own grinding for soldiers, their weapons and attachments, same as vehicles.
