Linden Lab has announced that Second Life has now passed the 1.5 billion square metre mark, having grown 44 percent in the second quarter of this year alone.
Said the company, “Our growth was due to the popularity of our newly launched Openspace land product along with a change in pricing to make the purchase of land more accessible to first time buyers.
“Openspace regions are full 65,000 square meter regions with an upfront fee of $250 and a recurring monthly fee of $75. We decreased the price for full regions by 40% to $1000 upfront (the recurring monthly fee remains $295).”
