EA's Moore discusses online play, free-to-play
Posted: 28.08.2013 07:38 by Comments: 8
Electronic Arts chief operating officer Peter Moore posted in the official EA blog that not all Electronic Arts games will require multiplayer. He also discussed the issues with free-to-play games in the EA catalog.

Moore wrote in the blog, "Many, if not most, of our games include single-player, offline modes that you can play entirely without an Internet connection, if you so choose. We know that's something many of our players want, and we will continue to deliver it."

Moore also addressed the negative perception of EA's free-to-play games, focusing on the upcoming Command & Conquer.

"We will continue to explore new free-to-play experiences for our franchises when we believe there is gamer interest and a cool new game we can build. But of course we will continue to deliver award-winning core gaming experiences on ALL of these franchises," Moore promised.

Command & Conquer will be released on PC this coming 2014.

Well, you continue on that way EA - and I continue on my way away from you. I almost believed there for a second that you were going to change all the stupidity from the last years - but then you shwoed your real face. Thanks for coming clean I guess ;)

For the single player experience without internet connection - I don't buy that - actions speaks louder than empty words...

If you hate them that much, you can always "crack" their games :D
So that they won't be that much intrusive. But I guess EA should be more considerate of us PC gamers.

I don't hate them, I simply don't agree with what they are doing and I do tell them that since they constantly via invading my personal space and interest space tells me how good they are and that i should spend money on their products.
Hate is a strong word, and today I'm moving towards indifference rather than anything else. ;)
I don't crack games - and cracking online games er sorry services doesn't really do it either. There are plenty of other things I can spend my freetime on than crying over games I can't play. There are so many other games that I can play so lessening the distractions by not using Origin nor UPlay gives me more time to focus :D

There's always a downside :D
All such services should have a "silent" mode.
