Why oh why is this free. Is it coz it's a soft launch? Or does it have a significant amount of "features" suggesting it is freemium?

SE would never soft launch free out of the goodness of their hearts. Almost guaranteed freemium.

Very nice looking. Looks like I'm heading to Canada. Yea, my guess is it's a F2P game EP. Sad, but I'm actually getting used to every other game being free. I remember when I would spend 30 bucks a week on iOS games. Now I'm averaging about 10 bucks on a good week.

I would like to tell everyone first to try the Game out before even assuming it might be bad at all since even if it`s Freemium and has iAP/Timer in it so far my Gaming Experiance with it hasn`t been bad at all and I am more then willing to spend more time with it.

Anyone can check if this requires internet? I hope it's not another one of their collectible online games..

Looks interesting but I sense pay to win. How much precious time should I devote to this if I download it which I'm curious to know so I'll probably give in and download it. And lastly I'm getting a little weary of being sold the idea of PvP just so I can kick some butt and rule the world. Can't we just all get along❤️☺️

Aw crap I guess it is an online game.. Sanuku's video shows it taking like maybe 10 seconds to sign in because it's "logging in". And says to play with stable wifi to prevent data loss. What a joke. Basically you have to have a steady Internet or the game might wipe your progress. SQE, you really are money grubbers.

I'm disappointed all that app makers nowadays think single player = multiplayer.
