    At 30seconds in you get a very brief look at the packs they will be selling at the store.

    Common vehicle pack
    Rare vehicle pack
    Mythic vehicle pack
    Booster pack
    Large Booster pack
    Repair Kits
    XP Boost

    Sounds like Pay2Win to me too Cyber. Maybe not tho. Also was interesting seeing it was devd by BugBear, Flatout and RR Unbound.

    Not a big fan of Free To Play games there is something wrong with them, i can’t put my finger on what though.

    i liked this franchise. good feeling of speed, super unrealistic drifting and physics, sure but it´s fun. i liked the psp RR games a lot too. after that it all went down the drain. this looks like the final nail…

    Since it’s obviously based on Unbounded which was a lot but certainly not what a Ridge Racer should be (or in other words: Unbounded was crap), I pretty much don’t care anymore. Too bad, up until the second PSP part it was an awesome series.

    It’s interesting to see how Sony is starting to move on the matter.
    Again hitting all the spots in advance.
    I don’t see reasons to complain.
    You can play the game, free, maybe you can’t win but if the game is good you can still have fun.
