With Champions Online going free-to-play on January 25, Cryptic thought this would be the perfect time to post an FAQ regarding the new business model. If you have been playing since launch or just getting started on it, you may want to hit it up.
There’s all sort of information in there on the C-Store, which is an in-game and web-based shop where players can purchase enhancements; Cryptic Points; subscribing versus free-to-play options; becoming a Gold or Silver member; the addition of Archetypes, and so much more.
If you would like to try the game out before you decide on going Gold or Silver, you can still get a free trial through here.
You can also read over the FAQ through the official website.
