ByDate: 03-21-2012 Views:
No doubt Sony Online Entertainment is determined to walk on the way of free-to-play. Another beloved fantasy MMORPG, Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, will officially go free-to-play this summer after DC Universe Online, EverQuest and EverQuest II.
"At SOE, giving players choices is the theme of how we're moving forward as a company. We see free-to-play (or as we refer to it, Free to Play. Your Way.) as a big part of our future and we like the flexibility it offers players. Therefore, I'm happy to announce Vanguard will be the next in line of our AAA games to make this transition. Since we've literally just begun on the work, I'm not ready to go into much detail. However, I will say that you can expect something similar to EverQuest®, EverQuest® II and DC Universe™ Online when we roll-out our free-to-play offering this summer. Once we have more information to share, you'll be the first to know. "
In addition, SOE has ramped up a Vanguard development team with Andy Sites (Director of Development), Salim "Silius" Grant (Creative Director) and Todd "Hobart" Schmidt (Technical Director) at the helm, and ready to take the game in exciting new directions full of regular new content, updates and much more. The first game update of 2012 will be hitting later this week!
