Champions Online numbers surge with free-to-play revolution

Champions Online has joined the ranks of the free-to-play success stories, with Atari claiming numbers have grown by 1,000 percent since dropping a subscription model.

In a press release Atari said the Cryptic-developed MMO had grown in "online concurrent user, unique login and revenue totals by over 1,000 percent".

To celebrate, all players can access a free XP boost by visiting the bonus tab in the C-Store, in-game or through the web portal.

Lord of the Rings Online has reported a tripling of revenue since its own shift to free-to-play, while Turbine's other major MMO, Dungeons and Dragons, has seen similar success since its own conversion in 2009.
