Shooter MMO Global Agenda Going Free-to-Play
Shooter MMO Global Agenda will soon be available to all for free with an expansion dubbed “Free Agent” expected to go live in mid-April. The Free Agent update will support free play across all character classes through level 50, with no purchase or subscription fee required.
This update also introduces a new Dome Defense Raid as high-level player content, a CTF-style Mercenary PvP game-mode with pilotable robots, revised skill-trees across all four character classes, and other changes and content.
For an optional one-time purchase of $19.99 USD, players may upgrade to Elite Agent status, which will accelerate the rate of earning character levels, gear, and currency and also grant access to premium features such as the login priority, auction house and in-game mail. All players that have previously purchased Global Agenda will be automatically upgraded to Elite Agent status.
Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Studios COO, had this to say:
Global Agenda has never required a monthly subscription to play and, for a while now, we have offered a generous free trial for the game. Our experience with the limited free trial has demonstrated to us the great demand among free-to-play gamers for a AAA-quality Shooter MMO like Global Agenda. We believe this latest change will further broaden the game’s popularity and appeal.
With this change, we allow players to experience all of the game’s current content and levels for free. We’ve done this in a way that ensures that free players do not have to spend real money to compete on a level playing field with those who do, while still rewarding those loyal players and fans that have purchased the game or otherwise supported the game.
