EVE Online’s Ascension expansion launches today, dropping the subscription paywall that’s barricaded the game for well over a decade and further reducing the small pool of subscription-only MMORPGs left in our genre. While those who play the sci-fi sandbox and subscribe will indeed see significant perks that make the cost worth it, looky-loos, newbies, and returnees will be able to slip into the game to check out the new tutorial and consider playing, some for the very first time.
Are you among them? Will you be playing or returning to EVE Online today when it goes more or less free-to-play?
Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
