Global Agenda

Hi-Rez Studios announced today that Global Agenda is now 100% subscription free. Purchasers of Global Agenda can enjoy the game¡¯s full current content, including all current Player-vs-Player combat, Player-vs-Environment solo and co-op content, and Agency-vs- Agency seasons, without a monthly subscription payment now or in the future.

Future content updates will be delivered via optional paid expansions. The first major expansion, Sandstorm, will be included for free to the entire Global Agenda community. To celebrate this change, the game is being offered for 33% off on Steam from now through July 5, as part of Steam¡¯s Summer Sale. To purchase, visit the Global Agenda Steam Page.

¡°Hi-Rez Studios is committed to delivering the best value in PC gaming¡±, said Todd Harris, Global Agenda Executive Producer. ¡°In addition to including all of the game¡¯s initial launch content for free inside the single-purchase price, we are bundling nearly 6 months worth of post-release content and features and including that within the single-purchase game. One purchase of Global Agenda lets you experience all of this content forever with no subscription.¡±

Global Agenda allows players to create and customize multiple agent characters, complementing FPS skills with accessible RPG-style progression. Players can co-op with friends online, compete in fast-paced multiplayer matches, and conquer persistent territory with player-formed groups called agencies. The large summer expansion, titled Sandstorm, adds weapon variation and loot, new epic weapons across every class and a brand new Open Zone area complete with quests and new missions. The first phase of Sandstorm was released in early June 2010, with the remaining phase to be released later this summer.

  • This is some sweet news. However, I don't think it's as much "committed to delivering the best value in PC gaming" as it is "We didn't get enough people to subscribe". It sounds like that to me anyways.

    As it should be.

  • inurface

    They finally realized an MMO doesnt work without people playing.

  • Omoi

    I sense a cash shop on the way.

    • Then you obviously shouldn't trust your senses. They removed the subscription because people didn't think it was worth the content. They're not gonna scare more away with a freaking cash-shop. You still have to buy it to play it. And the expansions are going to cost too.

    For people who still dont understand: like Nath says, the subscription has been removed. SO, you still gatta buy the game, but wont have to play monthly charges and sh*t.
