Cryptic Studios has announced that in 2011, Champions Online will free to play. This is nothing new, over the last couple of years many MMORPG games have opted to drop the subscription model and adopt the pay-per-service – if you want a special weapon, or enhancement, you pay for that.
In the Free-to-Play model, players have the option to purchase services, items and content to customize their gameplay options. These purchases expand upon an already complete experience and allow you to further customize your hero and enjoy the game in new ways. You can access this new material in the C-Store and use Cryptic Points to make your purchases.
The free to play beta arrives November 9, and if you want to participate, you simply have to download the game and get your game on.
With this news, I’m curious if Major Spoilerites are more inclined to play the game or not?
