With Champions Online going free to play and Star Trek Online turning a year old, Cryptic is celebrating by temporarily slashing prices on lifetime subscriptions for both MMOs.

For a limited time, you can get a lifetime subscription for $239.99, which is 20 percent off the normal $299 price, from January 25 at 6:00am PST until February 4 at 10:00am PST.

Those wondering how a lifetime sub for a free-to-play game like Champions works, should note that you’ll be bumped to Gold status forever, not to mention you’ll get all sorts of goodies:

  • No subscription fee: Play without a monthly fee forever! (When Champions Online goes Free-to-Play, Lifetime Subscribers will receive all the benefits of Gold Members in perpetuity!)
  • Free digital copy of the game: No need to purchase a retail key. It’s included in your Lifetime purchase!
  • Foxbat Action Figure – A miniature version of Foxbat to accompany you in-game.
  • Art Deco/Art Deco Future Costume Sets – Two free costume sets, original to Champions Online’s launch.
  • Eight character slots – Create eight different heroes.
  • The VIP room – The VIP room in Club Caprice is restricted to Lifetime Subscribers and longtime Champions veterans.
  • Exclusive costume piece – Just visit a tailor in-game to add it to your current hero.
  • “Vanguard” Perk and title – Show off that you’re committed to Champions Online for the duration.
  • Forum goodies – Change the color of your handle and show off that Vanguard title on the forums, too.
  • More on the way!
