Champions Online officially turns into free-to-play MMO on January 25

On the day that DC Universe Online officially launches, developer Cryptic Studios and publisher Atari announced that their own super hero MMO, Champions Online, will officially turn into a free-to-play title on January 25. The game launched as a subscription-based MMO in September 2009 but Atari announced its plans to turn the game into a free-to-play MMO last October.

The game also gets a slight name change to Champions Online: Free For All for the occasion. Under the new business model nearly all of the game's content will be free to access to any player and with no limits in terms of maxing out your character's level. The exceptions will be additional Adventure Packs which can be purchased via the in-game store. Players can still choose to keep their monthly subscription fee for $14.99 a month. You can check out the differences between the free (Silver) and subscription (Gold) versions on this web page.
