In August of 2015 ArenaNet did something unexpected. They made the core Guild Wars 2 campaign free to play to anyone interested in giving the game a try. For a series that has been predominantly buy to play, this was an interesting move that still continues to this day. Curious players that may be receptive in starting a Free Account have probably contemplated the list of differences between Free Accounts and Box Purchase Accounts, wondering if a Free Account is even worth the effort. As a veteran Guild Wars 2 player, I have restarted the game under a Free Account to ascertain whether a Free Account is worth anyone’s time. advertisement For a new player, a spreadsheet table of the features can only really mean so much to you. The list of capabilities certainly means something to many of us who have played Guild Wars 2 for years, but to someone who has never stepped foot in Tyria before, how do you determine the worth of features like the limited … [Read more...] about GW2 – Is a Free GW2 Account Worth It (Part 1)

BioWare had a lot to say and show about Onslaught, the next expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic, including a bunch of screenshots from the planets of Onderon, Dxun, Mek-Sha and Corellia. The devs also showed off the newest character to be your best friend, the gritty Jedi Padawan Arn: Apart from all the new images, there was some news to dish out. Notably, SWTOR is getting even better for free players, with previous expansions Shadow of Revan and Rise of the Hutt Cartel becoming free for everyone — no subscription required. Before it launched, I got the scoop on Shadow of Revan directly from the folks at BioWare, so read up on that if you’re looking forward to the soon-to-be free expansion. Also, if you’re looking to level up some alts in anticipation of Onslaught’s arrival, you can do so with a double XP event, running from July 23 to Aug. 20. That will still give you a couple of weeks to take a break until Onslaught’s launch in September. Or, you … [Read more...] about SWTOR Will Make Old Expansions Free When Onslaught Arrives

Rift changed their expansion’s name to “Prophecy of Ahnket” (due to some legal issues with a charity) and used this moment to start a little promotion: Everybody who logs in from now until May 14 gets the newest expansion for free! After that, you will have to pay for the expansion again, but it will be reduced in price down to $ 19.99 (19.99 €). I already bought it, so I’m not getting anything, but that’s okay. If it makes more people play, I am happy. :p Also, everybody who logs in during that time received a “Prophecy of Ahnket” cache. Please note that only one character receives this! You will get: Box of Individual Reward Charges (contains 10 such charges) A puzzle box dimension item (mine was an 8-sided one) 2x Tenebrean Engines (used to upgrade raid items) Rae-Me (a companion pet!) Glimmering Bag of Sparkles (I opened this one without writing down the amount, sorry!)
