Warhammer Online seems to have started a new trend of unlimited free trials, what with Funcom's recent announcement that Age of Conan would also offer an unlimited free trial, and now the fact that Atari and Cryptic Studios have joined in on the fun with the launch of the Champions Online demo program.
Similar to the aforementioned Warhammer and Conan offers, the Champions Online demo allows players to play through the Millenium City Crisis and up to a level cap of 15 for free. Forever.
However, there is one small catch: you will only have two character slots in the demo.
The demo is being currently being offered exclusively through Steam. Get started here.
What do you think about this new trend of unlimited free trials? I think it's an excellent idea, and it's a wonder it took this long to start taking off! Here's hoping the trend continues!
