'Not Free to Play at Launch', CBT Through August 1, 2016

'Not Free to Play at Launch', CBT Through August 1, 2016 - MMORPG.com

In a new post on the Albion Online forums, the team has written about the road to release. Of particular note is the announcement that AO will not be free to play on release as developing the game for F2P would increase significantly. In addition, closed beta testing will extend through August 1, 2016.

For this reason, we are putting the free to play plans on hold as well. Making the game ready for a free to play model would take up significant development time which we would much rather use to make a better game. Free to play would also create a lot of risks for the game - spamming, botting, world too small, etc - which we do not want to take if it can be avoided.
