Champions Online is now free to play

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.

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.
