If you thought $20 was a bit much for Trion Worlds’ upcoming game Atlas Reactor, then you might want to take a peek at this. Today, the company announced that it would be offering a free-to-play option in addition to the pay model.
This new option allows everyone to play the game for free as much as they like, even earning reward caches containing cosmetics (but you’ll be limited in how often you can open them). Of course, as you probably expect, there are limitations — particularly in the area of Freelancers. Rather than having access to all of the Freelancers all the time, players will be able to play a rotating selection. The other things that paying players will have access to that free will not are custom matches and future tournaments.
