Is Bitcraft free to play?
Clockwork Labs are giving the decision of monetizing a deep thought. They do not want their product to get sold once in for all and then they do not have funds for improving and updating the game in perpetuity. Just like this, they are taking the monetizing decision after keeping the pros and cons of terms like “Buy-to-Play”, “Subscription”, “Free-to-Play”, “Pay-to-Win”, “Pay-to-Progress”, etc. in mind.
The officials have mentioned that, according to them, they will be selling the thing which is understood to be bought, rather than understood to be earned. It means that you will be able to enjoy the game for free, but for the luxuries like premium skins, you will have to pay some price. They have also mentioned that as MMOs are a very difficult game to make, they will take the players’ feedback that, at what point do they feel the game is good enough to spend their money in, rather than potentially misleading players upfront?
As mentioned above, the game is currently under development, the officials have not shared the full details of their plans of monetizing it. It was just a philosophy that they shared and the monetizing decision will surely be aligned to it (making it almost confirmed that Bitcraft will be free to play).
