Champions Online: Celebrating a Successful Free for All Launch with a Gift

Free for All, which launched on January 25, 2011, has drawn hundreds of thousands of players to the virtual world, increasing Champions Online's online concurrent user, unique login and revenue totals by over 1,000 percent! Critical response has so far been similarly positive. We've received a few great re-reviews --  Eurogamer even called Free for All, "...something all MMO players should feel excited about." It's been terrific for us and we wanted to do something nice for players. 

As a special thank you to all current, new and returning players, we created a special, free XP boost available for pick-up inside the Champions Online game in the C-Store's Bonus tab. The boost increases the speed at which a player gains experience for completing missions and defeating enemies. Players just need a free account or a Gold Membership and they may then claim the free boost either inside the Champions Online game or even on the web C-Store, located here:

From our CEO, John Needham: "We're extremely proud of what the Champions team has accomplished with the Free for All launch. It's a pleasure to thank our fans and welcome new ones with this gift."

Champions Online: Free for All is a free to play update to Champions Online that allows gamers to experience the entire game, from level 1 to 40, at no cost. Free for All also features optional premium content for purchase. Adventure Packs, items, powers and costume pieces can be selected a la carte inside our C-Store. Additionally, current players may continue subscribing as Gold Members, while free players (Silver Players) may optionally upgrade to a monthly Gold Membership.

Thanks so much! Of course, if you have any questions or would like a follow-up, please do contact us. We really appreciate the coverage.

Cheers
