Hellgate: London Subscription Fees Detailed

Quote:
Multiplay will be free!
Elite Multiplay will cost $9.95 a month

Secure, closed servers hold your characters, even if you're not Elite
Elite players get 24/7 phone and online support; plebs get basic online support as with any other game

If there are queues to get on a server, Elite players go to the front
Elite players can have 12 characters in total; plebs get 3

Elite players can store around 40 items in "lockers" spread throughout the world; plebs can have 20. Elite players can also transfer these items to characters on other servers; plebs cannot

Elite players get unique gear and can wield the most powerful weapons in the game. Said weapons can also be emailed by the Elite to others of their kind

Elite players can board shuttles that transport them quickly to hard-to-reach corners of London

Elite players can become officers of guilds and own, enter, or operate player housing and guild buildings; plebs can be members of guilds, but will not be allowed to enter said buildings, or purchase property for themselves

Elite players get access to more gametypes; plebs not allowed into servers or areas where those gametypes are operating

Elite players will get new content each month, such as new monsters, new gametypes, new items, and so on

So you can play online to see how it is but you'll never be uber or godly. I guess it depends on what they offer for $10 a month online. Its not too much considering most are $15 a month, but since its free we'll be able to check it out first and see if its worth the effort.

I wonder what happens to your uber weapons if you drop from Elite to free.

Most likely it'll be stored in their database and you'll be able to use it again if you pay. No different to playing an MMO and then not subscribing again for 5months. Characters always there.

blah, the online sounds like what I wanted for a game but with pay, I hate pay to play But on the bright side, if it keeps out hackers, not a bad deal and you do get to get into any server without waiting. If it was 5 bucks a month, I probably would have done it for sure. But at 9.99, I'm half way there, if the game is just plain awesome, I'll do it.

Game looks kind of crappy. Action/RPGs are always soooooo much better in concept than execution. If it is popular enough, though, perhaps it will get a bit of a modding community to get the SP game up to snuff.

Beh, they rip the multiplayer apart, I can't wait to see the hoarding of hacks used on their networks

How much the retail box? I mean jeeze.. It's like a guildwars stunt, here you go you pay once and you get everything have fun kids, while these guys pull the ole' korean game trick, here you go you only get this and that, rest of the stuff you have to pay for uber items lawl!

This game would have to be multitudes better than Diablo 2 to get me to pay to play it. If its not, ill play Diablo 2 some more, wouldn't bother me.
