I love the idea of having this on my tablet but if it is going to be a F2P inapp walletfest then I will pass.
Probably going to be the family-sharing defeating "demo with inapp purchase to unlock". That would be unfortunate too.
Well that's the question isn't it - how are they going to monetise mobile users vs. gamers who could be paying up to £50 to play on the PC - yet they're playing the same game. I don't think it will be a traditional F2P model - they'd have to really pull something out of thin air to make it work for ARK as it doesn't exist currently.
I don't necessarily think CIV 6's attempt was the way to go either - Sure, it's $60 on the PC and it's the same game, but it's not mobile users fault that they exist within a lower-priced eco-system and it's not 100% the same experience because of the concessions made towards the different hardware capabilities PC vs. mobile.
