That IS good news! I didn't even anticipate it being F2P, but I'm glad the ultimate decision is for a good ol' commercial release :)
That said, it will probably have some form of multiplayer.
I just can't wait for the classic releases. They're probably my most anticipated GOG releases, and an instabuy when they come here :)
Those, and Mechwarrior 2: Mercenaries (but that might never happen) ;(
