End of Nations will be free-to-play
Trion Worlds – which publishes Rift – has announced that their second title, End of Nations, will be offered as a free-to-play MMO.
The game’s free-to-play model will let all players have full access to the game world and its battles, solo and co-op campaigns, and multi-player battles, with no time limits, level caps, or content restrictions. The game’s optional subscription will offer “extra value and convenience,” and the item store will offer convenience and customization items only – the new free-to-play FAQ reinforces that they do not want any player to be able to “pay to win.”
End of Nations is an MMORTS featuring 52 player team battles, special units, skills, and weapons, and boasts a AAA-production value. A collector’s edition box will be available at retail when the game launches.
