Fifth Season AS has announced that its web-strategy title AD2460 will be going free-to-play on December 7, 2015. Breaking away from its current subscription-based revenue model, the team is in the process of preparing Patch 7 that will launch the F2P iteration.
At its core, AD2460 is a fulfillment of a fantasy that I have had ever since I saw Star Wars; the ability to build a powerful galactic empire capable of wiping your foes from existence. And while I've waited years for an MMORPG to be able to provide that experience in a way that remains more accessible than most other attempts, I'm not sure I'm exactly sold on the method that AD2460 uses to go about fulfilling this fantasy.
Patch 6 for online web-strategy game AD2460 has added a new PvP feature that allows players to create alliances to capture the strategic locations known as "stations". Once held, other player-alliances can attack to try and claim it for themselves. In addition, new ship types were also added.
A new sci-fi MMO has emerged from the Norwegian development company, Fifth Season AS - a game that hopes to change the way MMO players look at web-based games.
