Champions Online life-subs restriction "passed down from on high," says Emmert, offers reinstated


Following news last night that Champions Online's lifetime and six-monthly subs offers had been pulled, Cryptic's confirmed that both deal are now available again, completely unrestricted, until 11.59pm PST on August 31.

Cryptic's creative director, Jack Emmert, told VG247 on the phone last night that unexpected popularity for the offers had caused the company to pull the plug.

"The business folks had a certain amount of life-time subscriptions allocated, and the popularity of the program far exceeded their anticipations, so it was passed down from on high that we had to end it," he said.

Fear not. You are now able to spend $200 on being a superhero for the rest of your life. Quick. Get to it.

The game launches next Tuesday in the US and next Friday in Europe. You'll be able to hear our full interview with Jack in this week's podcast.
