Bandai Namco has made known via a new stream that their upcoming MMORPG, Blue Protocol, will be free-to-play, though it will still have microtransactions. Via  a summary posted by Blue Protocol Database, the developers have announced that the upcoming anime RPG will be free-to-play, as well as more information on classes, gameplay and closed beta applications.

Bandai Namco also mentioned via the stream that while the game will be free-to-play, there will be something along the lines of a season pass and limited items, which are being speculated as cosmetics. Additionally, new information was released about features, such as guilds.
