Not only will it be free to download but free to play! After seven years and 20 updates, the MMO will now come in a few new flavors. Here is the breakdown.
There are 3 levels of player status free, premium and VIP.
Free is the basics, Less archetypes, no super groups, no mail, limited chat options and limited auction house functionality.
Premium is any existing players that move over to free. Essentially if you have subscribed before, you get a reward for doing so. You get more chat options, more archetypes, mail use and can join super groups.
VIP is where the mythical expendable income players hang. You pay the fee monthly, you get all the goods. All types, full auction house and form super groups.
Currently it is implied that you can go from premium or free to a VIP and back to premium, unlike other super powered MMO’s that offer free play.
No specific date is yet, just later this year as a launch window for City of Heroes Freedom.
For many gamers, online subscriptions are a luxury that often face the first stage of budget cuts, taking this into account Cryptic Studios has jumped forward with a Free-to-Play initiative with Champions Online to help maintain and possibly grow their population as a whole.
Here are some quotes from the team on their latest move.
Beginning Q1 2011, Champions Online will offer a free-to-play gameplay option. Everyone can download, play and enjoy Champions Online at absolutely no cost!
All you’ll need to do is download the game and begin playing. It will be a great opportunity to head back to the Champions universe to see what’s changed, spend time with your friends and enjoy a top-tier MMO without spending a dime.
We plan on entering our free-to-play beta on November 9, and to launch the new, free-to-play version of Champions Online in the first quarter of 2011. We can’t wait to grow the game with you, and we hope you’re as excited as we are!
Having participated in the beta I can say I was tempted to pursue Champions Online but I never had enough free time to commit to a subscription for the game. With a free gaming model I can see myself jumping into the game for casual fights and character creation. Hopefully I will not be the only one taking advantage of this shift.
