Quest Online, LLC, today announced that Alganon, its Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) game is going purely Free-To-Play (F2P).
After almost four years of development and a much publicized false start in December 2009, under new experienced leadership and guidance, Alganon was finally completed and officially launched at the end of April 2010. The game client was sold for $19.95 with no monthly subscription commitment and supported by a robust and extensive micro-transaction system.
The new Alganon Free-To-Play business model removes the final barrier of entry to this epic and fun fantasy based MMO game. Starting on Friday August 13th 2010, gamers who don't already own Alganon will be able to download it from http://www.alganon.com and play for free.
Like all MMO games, Alganon has had its share of ups and downs in a rapidly changing industry in which the choice of MMO games is increasing rapidly; all competing for the same pool of gamer dollars. said Derek Smart, President of Quest Online, LLC. Since its official completion and launch at the end April, we have seen the number of Alganon subscriptions grow steadily.
With the upcoming release as well as some major planned features and content in our 2010-2011 development road map, I felt that it was time to chart the long term future of Alganon in order to be in line with emerging trends as well as boost our subscription base.
In a pure F2P model, gamers have the opportunity to try different MMO games and to make informed spending decisions on those that they like and play frequently. Our robust Tribute Market micro-transaction system makes this possible and also provides an even playing field for all our gamers, regardless of how much money they spend. More importantly, gamers can play Alganon without having to spend a single penny in the Tribute Market. There is absolutely no nickel and diming going on; nor do you need to spend any money in order to progress normally.
Our community is best in class, are supportive of each other and have helped us immensely in charting the future of Alganon. We couldn't ask for a better class of gamers.
In addition to making the client free to download with no purchase requirement, the upcoming 2.02 version brings a wealth of new features, enhancements and content. For a full list of what's new, check out our latest newsletter at http://www.qol.com/d...etter_0810.html
In our 2010-11 dev road map, we have a number of exciting new features, content and improvements planned and underway. These include the much anticipated and requested PvP feature as well as new character models, classes, quests, instances, mounts, additional companions and a much improved server model. We are also laying the ground work for localization so that we can host the game in other territories and in targeted languages.
Alganon is a traditional epic fantasy-based MMORPG that allows thousands of people to play together in a virtual world that features a rich history dominated by commanding deities, powerful weapons and armor, deadly magic, epic quests, ancient places to discover, the utilization of detailed trade skills, a unique skills study system and more.
