It seems that more and more, MMOs are adopting the free-to-play model every week. City of Heroes and DC Universe Online have already done so and by the end of the year Lineage II will be in the same boat. They aren't exactly calling it "free-to-play," since that usually implies various levels of membership for the playerbase. Lineage II is going "Truly Free," meaning that you will have absolutely no restrictions while paying nothing at all.
You can, however, choose to buy booster packs of items from the L2 Store with "NCoin," the currency. If you're currently a paid subscriber you will become a Free member once the change happens and any extra paid time will be converted to NCoin. More information can be read over on the official FAQ page.
Along with this new subscription model, Lineage II will be bringing a huge content update titled Goddess of Destruction. NCSoft is claiming that players will be able to experience more than 400 hours with this new update as they level up from 1-99.
I'm quite surprised that every single player will have the same access with no tiered membership. I can only hope that more MMOs adopt this policy over the now-traditional free-to-play model, especially since it will likely attract more new players by not starting them at a disadvantage. Is this "Truly Free" model significant enough to get you guys to try out Lineage II if you haven't already?

I am best riter. #iwantareallifeTheCrazyEven Valve has lost almost all my respect: [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYW3t1yBflI[/youtube]KnickKnackMyWack I wish more cartoony games would come out. Nintendo makes plenty but there should be more high quality games with whimsy. Where's Jak IV? A proper Crash? Anything that doesn't just involve mashing one button? Realism is fine, but there's a LOT already.Mike Wallace Okay, that's Fallout: New Vegas done. Can't wait for the next one to come out. techsupport I'm new to Ultra Street Fighter IV and I suck and I still dig it a lotPixie The Fairy R steepled her fingers and smiled as she looked over at S and Z.

If I die I leave all my games to...my casket because they're mine. Stay away! *hiss, hiss*TysonOfTime Apparently the upcoming Tri-Force heroes update makes the local-play only items possible to get for everyone.

I won next round and he changed it to "ILETUWIN". I then 2-0ed the little sucker, and he left the lobby.

It used to be only acceptable in free-to-play games but its sickening that even AAA developers like microsoft are on the bandwagon.
