On this week’s show, we welcome a brand new host to the F2P Cast team, we speculate on the F2P and non-F2P implications of Microsoft buying Bethesda (and who may be next!), we laugh at PWE selling reputation in-game, and we give our Rocket League F2P impressions. All that and more on this week’s Free to Play Cast!

  1. A-bomb to not being able to watch the show live, or jump into the livestreams due to being a vampire. (Meaning I work third shift. Although I am really pale and have a penchant for Bloody Marys…)

    For the question of the week: If I were to get a new console, it would be the PS5. Why? PlayStation has always had more of the games I’m interested in, and without getting into a lengthy story… XBox won’t be getting my money for a while. However, I won’t be getting either right away. For one, I don’t buy first-round consoles due to the history of issues they’ve had. And second, I won’t buy any system until there are at least ten games I want for it. Switch is almost there.

  2. I don’t think Fallout 76 will go f2p unless they fix cheating, hacking, modding in there… they did free weekend once and that simply broke game.
