Valve: DOTA 2 to be new kind of free-to-play

Posted on Monday, April 23 2012 @ 15:42:47 CEST by


Valve's Gabe Newell revealed that DOTA 2 will be a free-to-play game, but with some twists. Newell revealed that what Valve wants to do is to create the optimal pricing service for each customer, rather than a "one price fits all".
“An example is – and this is something as an industry we should be doing better – is charging customers based on how much fun they are to play with.

“So, in practice, a really likable person in our community should get Dota 2 for free, because of past behaviour in Team Fortress 2. Now, a real jerk that annoys everyone, they can still play, but a game is full price and they have to pay an extra hundred dollars if they want voice.”

It appears Valve is putting this plan, or a similar initiative, into action.

He told Seven Day Cooldown: “We're trying to figure out ways so that people who are more valuable to everybody else [are] recognized and accommodated. We all know people where if they're playing we want to play, and there are other people where if they're playing we would [rather] be on the other side of the planet.
