Sony Online Entertainment is removing mandatory subscriptions from another one of their MMO’s. Vanguard: Saga of Heroes will be converted to free-to-play later this summer.

While specifics about the free-to-play conversion are hazy at the moment, Sony Online Entertainment says that players should look to its work with previous Free-to-Play adaptations (such as EverQuest, EverQuest II and DC Universe Online).

Sony Online Entertainment also says that it has assembled a new team of great developers to generate more frequent updates including improvements and new content.

Is Vanguard: Saga of Heroes an MMORPG you’d like to revisit in its free-to-play form? Let us know below.

    On the websiet they do not have a F2P vs Gold member break down YET, but they tell you to refernce their other titles to get a feel. Limited chat. Limited gold. limited content. Limited x1000000 everything.
    The 2 things to market you in. No level cap.

    Lol, this really made me laugh a bit. If we are to look at EQ2 or EQ then Vanguards is surely going to fail too…Honestly…

    Funny thing is, Everquest 2 and Vanguard started out as a B2p game.

    It is understandable that SOE needs to make an all-out free models before they hold the subscription based game too long or else they lose lots of opportunities of having new F2P gamers in the game
