Star Trek Online Ends Monthly Subs In Favor Of Starter Packs
Star Trek Online players who might have been on the fence about picking up a monthly subscription need not think about it any longer. The fence has been moved. As of now, monthly subs are no longer available in the game shop (although Lifetime subs still are).
Instead, PWE has decided to replace the monthly sub option with the Elite Starter Pack. This pack will run players 1500 zen in the C-Store and offers the following items:
- One new Character Slot
- 20 Shared Bank Slots
- 5 Captain Retrain Tokens
- An Increase on your Energy Credit Cap to 2 billion Energy Credits
Once players have purchased this pack, a new option will appear in the store -- the Elite Starter Pack Reclaim. This item can be claimed once per character and offers three additional items:
- 30 Inventory Slots
- 60 Bank Slots
- 2 Bridge Officer Slots
As for people who already have subscriptions, don't worry. They'll remain until you elect to cancel them and you'll still get your bonus Zen. In fact, you can keep them and pick up the starter packs. The devs do warn that buying these items will not allow you to go over the intended amount of slots. So make sure you actually need them before buying.
On an additional note, the STO team is removing the subscriber-only restriction from the Tribble test server... for now. They do warn that they'll re-evaluate this on future cases.
