Is Forge Mode part of retail or F2P?

Have we gotten clarification if forge mode will only be available with the $60 retail game or available to everyone on free to play?

No word yet, I would guess it’s part of the multiplayer as Forge has no campaign links.

Nothing confirmed yet.

I dunno, packaging Forge into purchasable content makes more sense financially for Microsoft. It’s both a multiplayer and single player type of component, so it would help drive desire and attention (possibly even dramatically) towards spending money instead of just being entirely encapsulated in the free multiplayer.
I see it being used as the carrot to get F2Pers to pay for more content.

Giving those tools out for F2P though would be the best strategy. All it does is add more playable content which is great for the model.

I’m not so sure, let all the free players PLAY the forge created content sure. But there will then be the incentive to buy if they enjoy it and want to actually make the content themselves.

Why not give everyone the tools to extend the game’s life though. Look at Roblox, Minecraft, and Fortnite. Community built content can carry a game and adding a barrier for that would be not needed. Also, why would you bundle a Forge with the Campaign. That would make for some weird messaging.
