    SOE PR chap at SDCC confirmed it as having $14.99 subscription…heaven forbid a Game employee would be ill-informed about games.

      lol GAME are all right(kind of) but this guy did say that was from information received about 7-8 months ago. so $14.99 will translate to probably £8.99 a month. hmmm probably won’t stop me from playing this, at least till marvel get a MMO out that isn’t based on super hero squad!

        Oh I’ll definitely be trying it out!

        I bet Marvel are kicking themselves that they cancelled the one that eventually became Champions.
