    If it's on windows installed it should be all free, otherwise it's bloatware/bundleware and they are ro proud of their new reinstaller with the tiny footprint that get's rid of bundleware from OEMs.

    Ok that said, from WIKIPEDIA:
    In-app purchases[edit]

    The game is primarily monetized through in-app purchases (through either a credit card, iTunes credits or Google Play credits); players begin with five "lives", lost whenever a level is failed. This applies to all of King's games. When they are exhausted, users can either send requests to their Facebook friends for more lives, wait for them to replenish themselves (a life is restored every half-hour), or purchase them. At certain points, primarily at the start of new "episodes", users must also either purchase, or receive a request from at least three friends before they may access the next set of levels. Boosters, to make the levels easier, can also be bought using in-app purchases.[7]
    While the game includes freemium content, 97.7% of people playing the game are playing for free, while only 2.3% pay.[8]
    Passing episodes[edit]

    Once all levels in an episode are completed, the next episode (starting at episode 3) is locked and the player must either get three friends on Facebook to send them "tickets" to unlock the next episode, it can be unlocked directly through the in-game store, or occasionally the game will allow the player to move on for free if the player has not been able to unlock the next area. If the game is not linked to the player's Facebook account, a new level can be unlocked by playing a Mystery Quest, a random previous level with a higher point threshold for winning. Three Mystery Quests must be completed before the next episode is unlocked, and a player can only complete one Mystery Quest in a single 24-hour period. Recently the option to unlock episodes by playing mystery quests is only available after several days have passed and no help is received through friend requests on Facebook. Other than waiting the time period until mystery quests are available, using in app purchase is the only way to unlock episodes.

    I assume if it is going to be on Windows 10, then you might get more levels for free but who knows
    Can only hope, it's the same with all games from this developer, free if tied into FB, pay otherwise

    I , I thought candy crush software was a pup (potential unwanted program).
    For me it's a DUP (definitely unwanted program). And anything that links into FB and gets all those annoying game notifications on your profile is a PDUP (positively definitely unwanted program).

    Games are easy to uninstall. It'll take 1 click.

    Talk about tin-foil hats.

    The vast majority of modern casual games involve either in-app purchases or social integration, or both. It not a big deal. Windows 10 already has Solitaire bundled. What's the difference?

    I have no interest in playing CC, but I'm not going to cry about it like a little girl either.

    Such a non-issue.

    People just want to find things to get upset about.

    You really don't understand do you?

    What's being discussed is, about a 3rd party program not from Microsoft, that will be bundled with the OS. It's not really about a new pay to play game from Microsoft. How much control will Microsoft have over the game(meaning protection it's customers)said game updates.

    If Microsoft doesn't execute total control over it, it's could be a security risk for people who don't know better(a hole in the firewall) with the Crackbook tracking. I personally don't play games, specially monotonous ones, but also this increases the ISO download and the upgrade through Windows update size, and for people with a metered connection that's not good either.

    So click 'uninstall'. Problem solved.

    There's no drama.

    Just to be clear, I'm not saying it GOOD that it being bundled. I'm saying it doesn't really matter. Its not a big deal at all.
