Freed: Earthrise To Remove Monthly Fee


Earthrise is a peculiar sort of game. In lots of ways it's an interesting experiment in MMO freedom, with Eve style skills, projectile weapons, and a big PvP-open world. The problems with it, however, are that despite being beautiful, it's grindy, jittery, and has a low playerbase. Devs Masthead have acted to try and remedy that last bit by removing the monthly fee as of December 1st: "We decided to let all our players unlimited gaming experience until we all are satisfied with the experience in our game. At the moment Earthrise features one of the best visuals, content, and gameplay of all sci-fi MMOs on the market. However it is missing polish and has annoyances that spoil the fun in the game. We are learning from our experience and that is why we will remove monthly charges until we bring the game to a quality state that is satisfactory to us and our players”, said Atanas Atanasov, CEO of Masthead Studios. Earthrise is definitely an oddity, and if you like oddities you will soon be able investigate it for no pennies. I'd say it's worth a look, because this is one game that just needs to realise its potential.
