    Soul Calibur: Lost Swords is the most recent entry in the Soul Calibur franchise, released exclusively on the PS3. A F2P title, it has no multiplayer - rather unusual for the franchise and, you know, fighters in general.

    Why is this?

    Admitting your game is pay-2-win... how low can you sink, really?

    So the next Soul calibur game has no multiplayer? Interesting. In related news, The next call of duty wont have guns. The next mario game wont allow jumping and the next zelda game wont have a world to explore, Link will just float around in space for 30hours.

    Did he actually say pay to win. If so, atleast he was honest.

    Good grief, when I saw the headline said "pay to win," I thought it was just a more honest version of the laced up mumbo jumbo they said. I'm shocked they actually admitted that it was pay to win.

    Yeah, its been on the PSN store for a while now. It got absolutely horrid reviews, something like 25% or so from what I've read.

    The game is such shit. It is just free-to-play Soulcalibur V.

    Still not as bad as Soulcalibur Unbreakable Soul, which just turned out to be some shit card game that borrowed art assets from all the other soulcalibur games.

    Lol reason I asked was because the OP made it seem like it was not. XD
    EDIT1: In fact, at the time I made this edit, the mistake is still present in front page. XD

    EDIT2: Thank you for correcting, Gahars

    It's no longer free-to-pla.. *ahem* pay-to-win is getting in the way of the core features of the game (multiplayer here).
    Now it's the core features, and arguably the game itself (judging from the card game trend) getting in the way of the pay-to-win part.

    The front page takes a few moments to update if the OP of threads is updated.

    Sad to see a series go so far away from its roots. Not really my cup of tea, but sure as hell wouldn't want this to happen to other great games and genres..

    The sad part is that this game will sell more than zero copies. Someone, somewhere, is going to buy it and probably even defend its design choice.

    Except it's free-to-play, already released, and already has like 1+ million downloads (according to Namco).
