SOE's All-Access Subscription Service Goes Into Effect April 23
SOE went back and forth a bit when their initial plan for subscriptions met with some fan resistance. The result, however, is nearly here, as the company announced it would be switching to its All-Access program for all its games later this month, on April 23.
As detailed on the SOE forums, players will be able to pay $14.99/month, with discounts for multi-month plans, and receive premium access to all of SOE's current titles -- EverQuest, EverQuest II, DC Universe Online PC, PlanetSide 2 PC, and Vanguard: Saga of Heroes -- as well as Landmark, EverQuest Next, and, presumably, H1Z1 (which was still under wraps until hours after this post went live) when those games are made available. SOE is still "finalizing membership benefits to Dragon’s Prophet."
Members will receive 500 Station Cash per month, a 10% discount on store items, and various other, unnamed, exclusive goodies.
There are a lot of questions regarding various special subscription situations, like whether lifetime subs to DCUO will also have lifetime All-Access membership (they will, as long as DCUO is operating on PC), so if you have a specific question, pore through the thread or contact customer support.

Only Buggy....that is all I can say.
No, I don't remember you ever saying that...in fact I don't even remember who you are.
granted this isn't quite to that point yet, but an all access sub sure seems to be a step in that direction. if I recall it was mocked a bit. I stated we would see the start of such a thing in Q3 of this year. that prediction seems a lot more likely now than it did then.
