Planetside 1 Dodges SoE's Axe and is Going Free to Play

Planetside 2 is a lot of fun, but let's go back to a simpler time when our Planetside game didn't have a 2 next to it's name. Don't we remember that game fondly? SoE does too. Well, more fondly than Free Realms, Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures, Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, and Wizardry Online. Those games are murdered dead. Planetside 1 is going the slightly less heartbreaking route and making the jump to 100% free to play with no marketplace and no strings attached, at least not yet.

So yeah, soon you'll be able to hop back into the now 11 year old Planetside 1 and relive some of the old memories, or just experience some new ones if you never got around to it in the first place. Of course this doesn't mean SoE isn't interested in taking your money. All single game subscriptions will be converted into their new All Access Pass that'll give you "top tier membership" to all the SoE games that haven't been murdered dead yet, including Everquest, Everquest 2, DC Universe Online, PlanetSide 2, Everquest Next once it's released, and oddly enough Vanguard: Saga of Heroes... that MMO that they're taking offline. The perks include:

·Claim 500 Station Cash monthly from within the game marketplaces.

·Receive a 10% discount on marketplace purchases.

·Gain access to exclusive promotions and offers throughout the year.

Free Realms and Clone Wars Adventures are kicking the bucket on March 31st, while Vanguard and Wizardry will be slightly delayed by going offline on July 31st.
