Atari and Cryptic announced today that the free-to-play update of Champions Online will become available worldwide on January 25.

Called Champions Online: Free For All, the MMO also features additional premium content for purchase in the form of Adventure Packs, items, powers and costume pieces which can all be selected a la carte inside the game’s C-Store.

Current players can continue subscribing as Gold Members, while new players may also optionally upgrade to Gold status, which unlocks most of the game’s content and includes extra features for a set price of $14.99 per month.

To start your free trial of the game or to find out more, visit the game’s official website.

The free-to-play model was announced back in October.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
