Good news for those of us that want to try the upcoming Age of Empires Online, yet aren’t quite sure how the game will actually be. They are going with a Free To Play model, meaning no subscription price to take part in the MMO/Strategy style game. Of course, with that model, you do have to shell out the cash for special items and other ‘premium’ features. But, if you like the game, you probably won’t mind a few bucks here and there.
Robot Entertainment and Microsoft have revealed more information about their upcoming entry in the Age of Empire franchise, including talk of a free-to-play business model. Age of Empires Online was first announced last summer and incorporates various MMO elements with the real-time strategy gameplay that earned AoE its popularity.
