If you’re a fan of the kart racing genre, you’ve probably already got your eye on Gameloft’s upcoming free-to-play title Disney Speedstorm, coming to Switch and multiple other platforms later this year.
If you are concerned about the pay-to-win elements, there’s apparently no need to worry. Speaking to GameXplain recently in a Q&A interview, Gameloft manager Aska Suzuki responded to a question asking if players who didn’t spend real money would be disadvantaged at all.
Apparently not! Here’s what was said:
“All players will have access to all content at launch, but they can also purchase in-game currency to progress in the game a little faster. They’re working hard to create a gameplay experience that allows players who choose not pay to have a fair experience – comparable to those who do make purchases. Free-playing players will unlock a lot of the items through normal organic gameplay and both single and multiplayer modes. And the devs encourage players to look at the season passes as a fair and fun way to unlock content. They want to reiterate that players who don’t want to make any in-game purchases will still be able to upgrade their characters, and they will be able to unlock seasonal characters by just playing the game.”
This game will be supported by a sizable cast of Disney and Pixar characters and courses. The developer also says it’s tried to go its own direction, rather than copy existing arcade racers, like the Mario Kart series.
