Over the weekend, sandbox fans were given something to look forward to: the chance to play a game without having to buy it. Aventurine
announced an upcoming promotion during which the purchase price for the fantasy MMORPG Darkfall
client will be removed temporarily, allowing players to experience the game by paying only the monthly subscription fee. There is also something in the works involving skill gains to run concurrently, but no further details have been released.
Although the specific start date has not been announced, it is expected to begin in two weeks and last only until Darkfall 2.0
launches. Players wanting to get a head start on the big update might not want to miss this opportunity. For a look at some of the changes coming with 2.0, check out Some Assembly Required
