We previously covered an upcoming virtual reality first-person shooter called World War Toons, which, as you might have guessed from the title, is a more cartoonish take on the WWII shooter genre. Since then Reload Studios announced plans to release World War Toons as a free-to-play game, with plans to add content on a regular basis for years to come.
The free-to-play model has been very successful for games like wargaming’s World of Tanks series, including World of Warplanes and World of Warships. As Reload Studios CEO James Chung stated, “Going F2P gave us the wiggle room to reach a wider audience already familiar with this model. We have to modify the monetization model a bit, but the basic structure of how people would consume our content would be applicable to other regions such as Europe or Asia.”
World War Toons is coming to various virtual reality platforms, including PlayStation VR, so stay tuned for more on one of the first WWII experiences of the still-gestating modern VR era.
