Trion Worlds is flipping the “fully free-to-play” switch with Atlas Reactor today. Players can jump in now and try out Brynn, the Skywarden, and start earning currency they can use to unlock other freelancers in the turn-based strategy PvP game.

Season 2 of Atlas Reactor’s competitive mode also kicks off today, and you can try your hand in new game modes, such as “All Random” battles and a few other oddball modes that pop up in the highlight video above.

As for the F2P implementation, Trion spelled it out in a blog post last week. Players can earn a new currency called “Flux” that can be spent to acquire new freelancers, mod tokens, skins, and loadout slots. You can also purchase individual freelancers for prices ranging from $2.99 to $7.49 or by packs that give you access to all freelancers.

One interesting twist is that players will earn a “roster bonus” to their in-game XP based on the percentage of freelancers they have unlocked — 100% for having all of them unlocked, 20% for having 20% (currently 5 of 25) unlocked), and so on. Meanwhile, players who did purchase the game prior to its going F2P receive a “Thank You” package consisting of lots of currency, titles, and loot boxes.

Now that Atlas Reactor’s got a real F2P mode, will you be jumping in?

UPDATE: Use code GGREPCL63LRNRDC3R7TN for a 100% boost in Flux gains until Jan. 24. The code is unlimited-use, so everyone can claim it!

    No I just seem to loath TRION
    I think they need to change their name and slap themselves in the face extremely hard several times a day over a period of a year

    I was amazed this was considered B2P material. What is going on @companies these days? Holy crap.
