After capturing the attention of FPS players, many have one question on their minds: Is FragPunk free-to-play?

FragPunk is a brand-new hero shooter from Bad Guitar Studio and is spicing up the formula by combining popular features from several titles to create a unique experience where Shard Cards have the capability of turning a match on its head.

Ahead of its release, we've got everything there is to know about the cost of FragPunk in this guide packed full of useful information.

Is FragPunk free to play?

Yes, FragPunk will be a free-to-play title meaning players won't have to spend any money to load into the hero shooter. The game's Steam page has listed it under the 'Free to Play' tag.

While players can play the game without spending cash, there's a strong possibility FragPunk will feature some form of microtransactions in order for Bad Guitar Studio to continue work when the game is released.

Will FragPunk have microtransactions?

There's every chance FragPunk will feature microtransactions in some capacity. During the closed alpha, the game's menu featured tabs for a store and a battle pass meaning players can choose to spend money on unlocking new content alongside purchasing a variety of cosmetics for their favorite Lancers.

It's unclear if Shard Cards will appear in the store. Considering their ability to directly influence a match, we expect them to be free when any new arrivals appear as part of a post-launch update.
