With Vanguard Going Free to Play, PlanetSide Becomes the Last SOE Subscription Based MMO March 21, 2012Posted by Wilhelm Arcturus in entertainment, EverQuest, EverQuest II, Sony Online Entertainment, Vanguard SOH.
In November of last year, when EverQuest II slated to go fully free to play, I asked the obvious question; which of the remaining SOE subscription MMOs would also go free to play?
Back then, only four games remained subscription based. And even then, rumblings seemed to indicate Vanguard might have a free to play role in the line up. That was clearly the wave of the future at SOE.
What will happen to PlanetSide while SOE works on PlanetSide 2?
Will SOE keep it as a subscription game for now? Will they make it free or free to play? Or will it go away before its successor shows up?
There do not seem to be any good choices in that mix.
