Hello ear lenders! I'm the Executive Producer for Excalibur Online, which means that I oversee the development of the game on behalf of Omniverse Games. I am also the primary point of contact between our developer and co-publisher, Radiance Digital Entertainment. My experience in the game industry goes back well into the days before Camelot - I was part of the original PlayStation launch team with Sony, and before that with Sega for the launch of the Sega CD. Since then I've worked with lots of publishers and developers, and in the last few years I've become very involved in the MMO space.
Free-To-Play refers to any game that provides players with a full gaming experience without the need to pay for subscription. The system has been exercised by various game developers to allow gamers to try their games without the fear of paying for something they may or may not like. Some games give players free trials while others give them the full game at no extra cost. It's a good way of attracting more players to the game, especially since having a free gaming experience is pretty hard to resist. There are thousands of FTP games online (mostly Korean MMOs), some of them being former Pay-To-Play games who wish to keep the game running after being dubbed outdated or passe. It's a good way to dominate the market if you ask me, even for games that carry old content.
