Vanguard Going Free-to-Play!

Sony Online Entertainment is removing mandatory subscriptions from another one of their MMO’s. Vanguard: Saga of Heroes will be converted to free-to-play later this summer.

While specifics about the free-to-play conversion are hazy at the moment, Sony Online Entertainment says that players should look to its work with previous Free-to-Play adaptations (such as EverQuest, EverQuest II and DC Universe Online).

Sony Online Entertainment also says that it has assembled a new team of great developers to generate more frequent updates including improvements and new content.

Is Vanguard: Saga of Heroes an MMORPG you’d like to revisit in its free-to-play form? Let us know below.



  1. Funny thing is, Everquest 2 and Vanguard started out as a B2p game.

    It is understandable that SOE needs to make an all-out free models before they hold the subscription based game too long or else they lose lots of opportunities of having new F2P gamers in the game

  2. Lol, this really made me laugh a bit. If we are to look at EQ2 or EQ then Vanguards is surely going to fail too…Honestly…

  3. On the websiet they do not have a F2P vs Gold member break down YET, but they tell you to refernce their other titles to get a feel. Limited chat. Limited gold. limited content. Limited x1000000 everything.
    The 2 things to market you in. No level cap.

  4. Is that…Zangief on the right!?

    Mother of…

    1. Lol, true story

  5. Just say it won’t be like the famous sentence:
    No Pay(n) No Gain

  6. All will fall, beneath the shadow of World of Warcraft! Gwahaha

  7. Iam felling something about this…Oh, its nothing, just my Epic-Fail-Sixth-Sense.
