Available now, NCsoft has just released a free-to-play MMO called Dungeon Runners. Though it is playable at no cost, if you'd like access to just a bit more, the company is charging $4.99 per month for the content. Here's some info on the differences:
Users can download Dungeon Runners for free via NCsoft’s online destination, PlayNC Store, and then play it for free. There is also the option for players to upgrade to a membership level which costs $4.99 per month.
The paid level adds features such as extra storage for items, log-in queue priority and most significantly, “access to the most powerful items, weapons and armor.”
Is this how all MMOs should be played: Free for general content and then pay a small fee for the premium goods? Depending on the numbers for a game like this, maybe we'll see more of this type of MMO option.
