Free games are becoming more popular, but will Disney Speedstorm be one of them? That's the question on a lot of gamers' lips right now, but what's the answer?

Never fear though, we've got everything you need to know about Speedstorm's price right here!

Disney Speedstorm Free?

Disney Speedstorm was announced at the start of this year and got us all hyped for its release. While we don't have a release date for Speedstorm yet, we know it'll land sometime in 2022.

But what about Speedstorm's price? Well, there's good news on that front too, because it's free-to-play on all consoles. So, it doesn't matter whether you're on PC, Xbox, PlayStation or Switch, you can pick it up for absolutely nothing.

There is a catch, though

You'll notice in Speedstorm's trailers and on its website that the fine print at the bottom says something significant. "In-game purchases" will be in Speedstorm, but what exactly does this mean?

Well, in a sense, it's fair enough, as Gameloft have to make their money back on this game somehow. However, it all depends on the form that these in-game purchases take.

As long as racers can play and succeed in Speedstorm without having to resort to micro-transactions, it's fair enough. However, if the in-game purchases give those who have invested a significant advantage then it will be anything but a free game.

At that point, it becomes "pay to win" like so many controversial games in the past have been. We'll see which path the developers have chosen to go down when Speedstorm launches later this year.
