Quick question about F2P

13 replies 292 views Edited Mar 1, 2013

So recently, I lent my friend my copy of UC3 so that he could play the campaign. But with 1.17 coming out, I felt like playing it again, so I downloaded the F2P on PSN. But there's one thing that's concerning me. If I go play it, will I keep everything (rank, treasures, DLC, etc.) or will I have to start from scratch? And then if I transfer back to the disk version, will I keep my rank from before or will I have to start out from scratch another time?

Every single thing will carry over to F2P fine.

But, you will start from level 1 and only be able to go to level 15. You can keep playing but cannot advance your level.
You can pay $20 to play the full MP without your disc (minus Co-op).


When you get your disc back everything will be just how you left it on your account. same legacy, ect.

True and untrue.

 

Everything such as your stats, your rank, your unlockables your DLC will carry over. You just won't gain money or rank up.

Your rank will not restart from level 1.

Yup sorry.

 

OK, so...your rank, and every thing else carries. BUT, you earn no XP, and there are TV ads before and after every game.

For this, to get rid of them you have to buy either of the following.

 

Single Player

Level Cap Removed

DLC Packs

Co-Op Adventure

 

The easiest is to just grab the level cap unlock.

Do tournament tickets carry over to the F2P version? What about the ND paw and co-op star? Leveled up boosters as well?

^ Might I add, I really wanna download the F2P version so I don't have to pop in my disc everytime I wanna play UC3 (I'm playing other games at the moment). That and I don't mind spending if using the F2P version really does take care of some of the big problems like the spinning ring and such. If I do though I wanna know for sure what I have and what I use will be useable.

So basically... 

 

  • Co-op Star, ND Paw print
  • Tournament tickets
  • Gold Cloaked and Gold Monkeyman

That's basically all I'm concerned about. I'll gladly stick to my disc though if I must, just figured a digital version of MP would be more beneficial and easier to use and have.

Cool. Do you think I should jump ship to the F2P version or stick to my disc? Seems you have some experience with the F2P version already, is it better? Is it worth the investment?
