Hi-Rez Studios today announced that "Global Agenda: Free Agent", the latest update to the 3D Shooter MMO, will enable free-to-play access to all of the game’s current playable content and levels with no purchase required.

The version 1.4 Free Agent update, expected to go live in mid April, will support free play across all character classes through level 50. This update also introduces a new Dome Defense Raid as high-level player content, a CTF- style Mercenary PvP game-mode with pilotable robots, revised skill-trees across all four character classes, and other changes and content.

For an optional one-time purchase of $19.99 USD/13.99 GBP/15.99€, players may upgrade to Elite Agent status, which will accelerate the rate of earning character levels, gear, and currency and also grant access to premium features such as the login priority, auction house and in-game mail. All players that have previously purchased Global Agenda will be automatically upgraded to Elite Agent status.

Global Agenda has never required a monthly subscription to play and, for a while now, we have offered a generous free trial for the game.” said Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Studios COO. “Our experience with the limited free trial has demonstrated to us the great demand among free-to-play gamers for a AAA-quality Shooter MMO like Global Agenda. We believe this latest change will further broaden the game’s popularity and appeal.

With this change, we allow players to experience all of the game’s current content and levels for free. We’ve done this in a way that ensures that free players do not have to spend real money to compete on a level playing field with those who do, while still rewarding those loyal players and fans that have purchased the game or otherwise supported the game.

Below is a summary of the differences between Free and Elite versions of the game:

Free-to-Play

  • No Level Restriction
  • Ability to earn all of the game’s current items without spending real money.

Damn, I cant wait to play this.
That`s why I have one question.
It might be a very dumb one but here I go.
If I download the trail now,
and the game goes free to play,
do I have to reïnstall it then?
Or can I just play on on the account I made on the excact same download.
I`m asking this because I really can`t wait to play :D

This games pretty cool. I dont know if going free to play will help it much this late in the game but good luck to em.

All players that already owned the game will automatically be elite agent wakadoo.
That was the first thing i thought when i started reading it, but if you continue reading the whole thing it mentions it there. :p
