The game is entirely free. You can acquire everything in the game for free. Cosmetic assets cost money and you can spend money to get things faster.
EA restricts you from part of the game unless you pay money then it is not free to play. It would be considered a glorified demo.
So let's remind EA before they even try it.
If you make a campaign and players cant access the entirely of it then the game is not F2P.
If you charge for additional factions or make it ungodly hard to get without money then it is not F2P.
I'm writing this because EA is hella greedy and like to employ every money making strategy possible especially since they make bad games that fail all on their own.
