Former Activision Executive Robin Kaminsky has joined Trion's executive board to give Trion more expertise as it makes the transition to more free-to-play massively multiplayer online games.


“I love their approach to the market,” Kaminsky said. “They are very much at the cutting edge as an online team. They have put a real emphasis on free-to-play. I believe the future is in online free-to-play games, and so I am excited to be involved with them.”


So I guess with this hiring, it sure looks like ArcheAge is going be F2P doesn't it ?


What do you all think ?

It's not really F2P in Korea though.

 

You can't own land if you don't pay, and why would you play a sandbox without being able to own land?

 

I think the F2P aspect will mainly serve as "trial mode", and also to attract buddies and girlfriends to build community.

I always knew that all future Trion titles following Rift would be either F2P or B2P.  They announced this ages ago.  This is not news as it's basically been a given.
