Age of Conan - Free to Play (With Micro-Transactions)

The title is really unimaginative, I know. Still, Source.

Seems they're adopting a fairly standard "Hybrid" model - A "Base" F2P game along with an item/subscriber store. So... Who saw this coming?

*Raises Hand*

The freemium model is paying off big time I think. Turbine is quite successful with its two offerings (DDO and LOTRO). I'd be surprised if a lot of MMO's don't start going this route (except for maybe WoW, cause, really, do they need MORE money?).

It'll be time for me to brush off my toons and sharpen my axes in AoC I guess.
