Cryptic Studios have confirmed that the lifetime and 6 month subscription packages that were on offer, which "far exceeded" expectation, are back in business for gamers.
They posted an announcement on the MMO website, declaring they've reinstated the promotional programs, "with no supply limit", until midnight on August 31st. Fire up the credit card!
"Earlier this week, we gave notice that we were running out of special Lifetime and 6-month promotional subscriptions. Within a day, the rest of our supply had been sold out, leaving a number of you confused and upset," Cryptic devs.
"The response to this promotion has been overwhelming and we want to thank everyone who posted on our forums, called customer service and sent e-mails over these past few days."
And now for the juicy bit...
"After further consideration, and to meet the needs of our community, we have decided to reinstate the Lifetime and 6-month subscription promotional programs with no supply limit until 11:59 p.m. (Pacific time) on August 31st."
If you want that lifetime subscription, which also comes with Star Trek beta access and loads of in-game perks for Champions Online, then you betterand cough up. The MMO launches to life next week, on Tuesday for US users and Friday for Europeans.
