Earthrise is removing the monthly subscription fee on the 1st December. and that the game will adopt its free-to-play format early next year.
According to Masthead CEO Atanas, "We decided to let all our players unlimited gaming experience until we all are satisfied with the experience in our game. At the moment Earthrise features one of the best visuals, content, and gameplay of all sci-fi MMOs on the market. However it is missing polish and has annoyances that spoil the fun in the game. We are learning from our experience and that is why we will remove monthly charges until we bring the game to a quality state that is satisfactory to us and our players."
Earthrise is a post-apocalyptic science fiction MMORPG set in the distant future where cloning, nanotechnology and quantum engineering have become ingrained into human society. Each individual’s consciousness is stored in a data vault, ready to be uploaded into a cloned body as necessary. The MMO has a heavy PvP focus.
Masthead will be limiting new accounts in the meantime, while invitations will be sent to selected new players and a new sign-up option will be provided. All existing subscribers will also receive a number of invitations to bring their friends in the game.
