ESO has dropped its subscription fee for PC and Mac as of today. Xbox One and PS4 will join the subscription free fray on June 9. The game will still require an initial purchase to play, which is currently priced at $59.99.
Final Fantasy Online's got a new big patch, and to encourage players who have let their subscription lapse to come back, the game is offering a free weekend for registered, inactive players from Friday, January 30, 2015 at 12:00 a.m. to Monday, February 2, 2015 at 12:00 a.m. (PST). It appears that those players will have full access to the game, including new features from the patch.
Best case scenario: "Heart of Thorns" is the title of an upcoming Guild Wars 2 expansion to be announced next week at PAX South.
Worst case scenario: "Heart of Thorns" is the name of the next season of the living world content for Guild Wars 2.
Either way, something is coming. Guild Wars 2's publisher, NCSOFT, has registered a new trademark for the name "Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns" with the accompanying logo above. ArenaNet has a panel scheduled at PAX South that promises a sneak peek at what's next for the game. If you're a fan, it's time to board the hype train.
The free DLC expansion that's "MMO simulation so good you'll think it's real" will be released on Steam on November 20, 2014. In an effort to perfectly simulate an MMO, the expansion includes five classes: warrior, rouge(?), magician, hunter, and microwave(???).
