Is Project Mugen pay-to-win?

Project Mugen is a gorgeous-looking open-world gacha, but can players be F2P and have a good time?

Project Mugen is a gorgeous-looking open-world gacha, but not all gachas are created equally. So, is Project Mugen pay-to-win or is it F2P-friendly?

We’ll cut to the chase – Project Mugen is not yet available, so we’re unable to confirm how pay-to-win or free-to-play friendly the game is.

Project Mugen hasn’t released yet, so we’re unable to research and test how the game’s monetization elements work.

The game is being developed by NetEase and Naked Rain. NetEase sadly doesn’t have the best monetization history (looking at you, Diablo Immortal), so that is somewhat of a concern.

While we wait for more information about the game, we believe players will use premium currency to pull for characters.

It’s also possible we will see weapon and cosmetic banners in Project Mugen, as well.

Many free-to-play games also allow players to spend premium currency on stamina refreshes. We’re almost certain this will be available in the game.

Learn more about Project Mugen

Project Mugen is an open-world action game that will be available on iOS, Android, PC, and even some consoles.

It will contain a gacha element, but it is unclear what players will be rolling for. Most likely, it will be characters (similar to Genshin Impact), but we could see weapon banners and costume banners in the game, as well.

We’re not sure how pay-to-win Project Mugen will be, but we’re not feeling great about how free-to-play friendly it will be.
