Star Trek Online becomes F2P

If you’re unaware, there exists a Star Trek MMORPG, Star Trek Online. Currently this costs users to play, but come January 17th, players will be able to enjoy the game for free!

Free players will be classed as Silver Members, and some game features will be limited. To gain access to all the features, you can pay $14.99 per month for Gold membership, however certain features are purchasable for Silver members.

Although the official sign-up date for this is January 17th, there is an ‘early access’ date on the site’s calendar…tomorrow, January 5th!

Here’s an overview of Star Trek Online’s free-to-play features and how you can engage in a number of different ways:

  • The Universe is Your Only Limit – Play as much as you like for as long as you like at no cost. No subscription is necessary, nor is payment of any kind required.
  • Episodic Gameplay – Experience new weekly episodes that feature story-based gameplay and put your captain’s ability to command to the ultimate test.
  • Your Captain, Your Crew, Your Destiny – Become a captain, seek out new life and new civilizations and encounter hostile beings as you advance to maximum level for free.
  • Familiar Places, New Experiences – Travel to Starfleet Academy, Deep Space Nine, The First City of Qo’noS and many other iconic locations and notable worlds from the beloved Star Trek universe.

This looks like it could be a good one to have a go at, and as a fan of MMORPG, and indeed Star Trek, I’ll be signing myself up for a little interstellar fun! Hit the link below to take a gander at the site.

  1. Heard something about early access but it’s unconfirmed. My source is unreliable but the early access is tomorrow and it involves players with existing accounts or something like that.

    Either way, I am pretty STOked.
