Not that we were really worried it wouldn’t be, but it’s nice to hear it from the source. Well, from a site translating the source, at least.

Several fan sites are reporting the news as translated from a FAQ on the Korean-language Nexon TOS site that the game will definitely be free-to-play, along with a number of other Q&A entries dealing with character creation, advancement, and other basics. In case you were wondering, Tree of Savior will be rated Everyone, at least in Korea, so there won’t be any 3/4-naked anime girls in this one — which is good or bad, depending on your point of view.

Are you looking forward to Tree of Savior? Let us know!

    Game plan!
    Wait for game to published.
    Play the game for a bit.
    Wait & Play private servers

  3. sdsfsdfs on December 31, 2014

    Not gonna play it becouse of publisher.Nexon is the sh*tiest publisher i ever see.

  4. Yey on December 29, 2014

    Great news, I’m very excited about this game.

  5. Lonetimegamer on December 28, 2014

    yeah same chibi 2.5D games they have been releasing since the 90’s… just another copy/paste game company that relabels old games… no thanks.

  6. Anthony on December 27, 2014

    You do realize Nexon KR is completely different than NA’s Nexon. KR Nexon is actually very good.

      they seem to piss off Closers’ beta testers with the extravagant cash shop prices

  7. Merkadis on December 27, 2014

    i will likely play whichever version won’t be hosted by Nexon.

    facebook share link corrupted

    I don’t have high expectations from NexonP2W or not,they will not surpass PoE..So it’s ok to give it a shoot.

    • Ross on December 27, 2014

      Agreed, huge PoE fan. However, you have to take into consideration this game is made by the very creator of Ragnarok Vanilla. Great expectations for such a talented developer.

      • Doomex on December 28, 2014

        Well yeah,the game looks quite good(char and world design looks amasing).Let’s hope for the best, i really need a new good mmo to playXD

    • no name required on December 27, 2014

      Why are you comparing two different games…

      • Doomex on December 28, 2014

        Instanced vs. open world yeah “big difference” to me.

        • no name required on December 28, 2014

          except that this isn’t a diablow styled game like PoE is and is made based off Ragnarok Online?

          • Donald on January 6, 2015

            They were talking about the cash shop. In PoE it is purely cosmetic.

        • no name required on December 28, 2014

          and to add, tree of savior isn’t instanced, its a segmented-open world

    • ZerkReaper on December 29, 2014

      I share your concerns. I really hope it doesn’t go paytowin with it’s cashop. God knows Nexon does not know how to balance their cashshop.

  10. Vagrant on December 27, 2014

    I will play this game, even if the publisher those chicken suckers of Nexon NA. That is how badly I want to try this game. Hopefully it won’t be 10 years before a western release.

  11. asdasdas on December 26, 2014

    IMC trusted Nexon

    faith in IMC lost

    RIP dead game

    • Innis on December 27, 2014

      Yeah they really messed up having nexon launch the game.
      I mean now the game is just gonna be Pay2MuthafawkingWin.
      Awesome choice guys. Not sure if I should hold interest in this game anymore.

  12. Eddy on December 26, 2014

    I just wanna play this game. It looks so fun.

  13. Bic Boi on December 26, 2014

    “Everyone, at least in Korea, so there won’t be any 3/4-naked anime girls in this one..”

    But my favorite classes were Assassin Cross and Dancer!!! D: Gawddamit.

  14. Anon on December 26, 2014

    Ugh. Can’t wait for all the pay2win bullshit. Hope private servers happen right quick.
    Nexon has awful F2P models. Absolutely no faith, which is terrible because I absolutely cannot wait for this amazing game to come out.

  15. OMGFrogz on December 26, 2014

    Nexon does have a history of free to play games so I can’t say I’m surprised. But wondering how nexon will make a profit out of this one is completely beyond me. Maybe it’ll follow the whole PoE schematic?

  16. Absol on December 26, 2014

    I wanted to make my characters naked :'(
