Following news last week that Champions Online lifetime subs have now been reduced by 20 percent to £240, Cryptic’s confirmed that the basic game is now completely free to play.

The superhero MMO’s now been renamed Champions Online: Free for All.

“Silver Players” – those that play at no cost – can play up to level 40 without restriction.

Players do also have the option to become a Gold Member for $14.99 a month, which unlocks all of the game’s existing content, allows for classic CO freeform character progression, and also grants Members a stipend of 400 Cryptic Points to use in the C-Store every month.

You can download the client here.

Get to it. It doesn’t cost you any money. You shouldn’t really need too much more incentive than that.
