Star Trek Online Going Free to Play This Year


Recently, Cryptic Studios was purchased by Perfect World Entertainment who basically just makes Free to Play MMOs. So it shouldn’t be too surprising that Cryptic is now working on a Free to Play version of Star Trek Online that will launch towards the end of this year.

Exact details on how it’ll work out, especially for lifetime subscribers, but it’s assumed that it will work similarly to Champions Online where lifetime subscribers will receive 400 Cryptic points a month. It’s also unknown when the switch over will happen, but it’s definitely due later this year.
