Atari MMO becomes the latest title to ditch subscription charges
Developer Cryptic Studios and publisher Atari have announced that PC MMO title Champions Online is to become a free-to-play title from Q1 2011.
The game currently requires users to pay for a monthly subscription. Once the change is made gamers will be able to download the title and get going for no outlay whatsoever.
Atari hopes that it will be able to monetise the title through premium content, which will include adventure packs, new superpowers and downloadable costumes.
