Pirates of the Burning Sea Going Free To Play!

     So as most people know by now, as long as they receive occasional news from Sony Online Entertainment in their inbox, that They announced Pirates of the Burning Sea (PotBS)  is switching to a Free to Play model, with Premium and Captain's Club subscription plans.  Sound familiar?  Lord of the Rings Online switched to a very similar model and went live a couple months ago. 

     But why should you care? They cut so much content for Freebie members.  But alas, so far, This is not the case with PotBS.  You can check what Free accounts get vs Premium vs Captain's Club Here .  As you can see, you get quite a bit with a free account in comparison... 2 Characters Per Nation, that's 8 Character slots, Plenty of storage and dock space... If you Bought the game new way back, or subscribed at least once using a credit card or a game card, you automatically get Premium access as well

    The Free to Play model was decided on late last year and the tech to make it happen is completed and in testing. You can expect to pillage and sail the open seas on or around November 22
