Vanguard: Saga of Heroes Free-To-Play Date Released
You may remember a few months ago we reported that Sony would be converting its MMORPG, Vanguard: Saga of Heroes to a Free-to-Play model. The MMORPG was originally released in 2007 and quickly declined in popularity, although it picked up some steam in recent months after Sony began updating the game more frequently.
Today Sony Online Entertainment revealed that Vanguard would officially launch F2P on Tuesday, August 14th, only a week away! No word yet on what will be changed to fit the new payment model but Sony did state that the developers have been working on improving the game for the F2P launch. Some of the improvements include revamped starting areas and no more class restrictions for any race.
With Bullet Run just releasing, Planetside 2 beta beginning this week, and DC Universe Online as well as the Everquest series already F2P, Sony really seems to be embracing the F2P model as their model of choice.
Will you give Vanguard a try come August 14th? Let us know in the comments below!

there are restricted classes. Yes.
But you may play all of those until lvl20 for free to have a look at first. Thats something most f2ß don't offer.
Equipment is NOT only white stuff!
You may wear greens and a whole and very numerous bunch of blue ones and yellows too.
All items from the revamped quests are designed for f2p as well.
And the unbind item is now at about 2$ for 5.
Vanguard has more content than 10 other f2p games on the market combined.
So why always cheese about "wahh.. i am restricted..and this in a "free" game!!"
you CAN'T play a f2p game for free. That's why this model is such a successful businessmodel to earn money :P
