It was this or Beethoven's Ode to Joy, but that one's a mite more overplayed.

@JuliusSeizure NO POSSIBLY BETTER WAY TO SAY IT!
This is a great game that never got the chance or subs it deserved maybe this will change that.

I am shocked and awed. I never thought I'd see this coming, especially after their superb subtlety at E3...

So long as they don't balls this up, it could be great.

Viva FE.

One question, what are reward points?

@Dumac

That's what I was wondering too. Sounds important.

@Dumac Currently in the game, each month you stay subscribed you're given a bunch of Reward Points, with the intention being that after you've accrued enough you can cash them in for something like a unique mount, expanded bank slots, faction t-shirts, etc.

The major change, with the transition to free2play, will be that get more Reward Points if you are a subscribed player, and we'll be adding items into the Reward Point store that might otherwise have to be purchased with real money

tl;dr - if you do decide to pick up one of the subscriptions, Reward Points will be your way of getting stuff from the Fallen Earth Store without paying more

@josephwillmon Good to see you're keeping an eye on press release reporting. Always nice to have things clarified by a rep from the company.

Cheers for clearing it up.

Am I the only one who gets the urge to sub to a game after it becomes F2P?...

Like, "Ooooh, this game is free? It's pretty good too. Oh wow and I get all this stuff if I subscribe? Well, I feel like I'm losing out by not subscribing so here, take my money."

@PrimeSynergy

That's what happens to me when I try out a lot of F2P games, and I imagine a lot of folks do the same thing. Why companies have such a hard time realizing this and cling to their subscription-only models, I'll never know.

@PrimeSynergy

It's really kind of the point of going f2p, really. More people get to try the game and see what it has to offer, and then like it enough to pay.

Well, if this is the way they are going to do their free to play model then I am ok with it. The cash shop does not sound like it will be a pay to win, more of a choice.

Now I really do hope that they will introduce a lifetime membership as an option for the VIP status.

Since we know G1 are branching out westwards and expanding their catalogue, and since things happen in threes, I wonder if there will be another G1 acquisition following APB and FE?
