The FAQ over on the official APB website, mentions that the game will not carry a monthly fee like most MMOs.
So it may be going the microtransaction route or be pulling a page out of the Team Fortress 2 book – buy the game, play online for free – but we doubt that.
Dave Jones told us last month that the game will not have a normal subscription model, but that players will understand why they will have to pay for the investment.
“Basically, you have to buy the client. It’s a traditional game that you buy,” he said. “We’re not going the normal ‘you have to subscribe to play the game every month’ route. What we haven’t said is which route we are going, and in some respects we’re still looking.”
