New Asian-Oriented Game Platform Plus9 Offers Free Membership For Playing Games
There's a new game platform launching today. Your first impression of that might be "Really? Another one?" But Plus9 has a few things going for it that help to differentiate it from just being yet another Steam or Epic Games Store.
The first twist is that it's themed around Asian games, billing itself as being "devoted to all things Otaku." Today marks the launch of its Game Club, which includes 14 games from smaller publishers that might otherwise sail under the radar when offered by bigger services.
The launch lineup includes Tengami, Synergia, Raiden III and IV, BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, Guilty Gear X2 #Reload, Kawaii Deathu Desu, and more. Plus9 also offers a +NET news service that features Asian-developed gaming news, communications, and player-created content.
You can sign up now for a 30-day free trial. After that, a subscription costs $49.99 per year ...
... or maybe not. One of the features of Plus9 is that you can earn free membership, which is why we're giving it coverage here on MMOBomb. Tasks you can complete to do so include the usual "social marketing" objectives, like making a comment on an article, liking the Twitter account, or getting a friend to sign up.
Curiously, though, you can also earn subscription time by playing games, described as "reaching specific milestones within certain games." A post on the site offers some details on what some of those activities are and their rewards, such as earning 14 days of subscription time by unlocking an additional character in Kawaii Deathu Desu.
We're told that a player should "be able to remain active members for free, as long as they keep up with activities," at least during the service's beta period. So if you like Asian games and want to potentially enjoy them for free, you might want to give Plus9 a look.
