You may remember a few months ago we reported that Sony would be converting its MMORPG, Vanguard: Saga of Heroes to a Free-to-Play model. The MMORPG was originally released in 2007 and quickly declined in popularity, although it picked up some steam in recent months after Sony began updating the game more frequently.
Today Sony Online Entertainment revealed that Vanguard would officially launch F2P on Tuesday, August 14th, only a week away! No word yet on what will be changed to fit the new payment model but Sony did state that the developers have been working on improving the game for the F2P launch. Some of the improvements include revamped starting areas and no more class restrictions for any race.
With Bullet Run just releasing, Planetside 2 beta beginning this week, and DC Universe Online as well as the Everquest series already F2P, Sony really seems to be embracing the F2P model as their model of choice.
Will you give Vanguard a try come August 14th? Let us know in the comments below!
