Company: Sony Online Entertainment
Product: Vanguard Saga of Heroes

Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) has announced that Vanguard Saga of Heroes, the fantasy massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), is now officially free-to-play worldwide. Players can join guilds, level up, battle creatures and explore the vibrant world of Telon for free on Windows PCs.

Vanguard Saga of Heroes' transition to a free-to-play model marks the beginning of the game's exciting new direction, including entirely new game enhancements, regular updates and brand new entertaining content.

With the transition of Vanguard, SOE now claims to have one of the largest and most diverse free-to-play line-ups of any publisher and continues to expand its leadership position in this growing business model.

Free Members:

Players have access to a selection of races and classes. All classes are playable for free up until level 20, while a selection of others max out at level 55. Some game features and content are restricted, such as races, bag slots, guild functions and character slots.

Gold Members:

Gold membership is available for $14.99 USD per month and provides players with full access to all items, classes and races, along with full access to all game features such as Broker System, Brotherhoods and Housing. Additionally, Gold Members have access to 12 character slots plus unlimited coin acquisition.

"SOE recognized the successful evolution of free-to-play online gaming early on and we were one of the first publishers to truly embrace the business model. We have a long history of providing rich and compelling content to our online worlds through the free-to-play model, and with Vanguard's transition, we continue that legacy with one of our most popular titles."
- John Smedley, President, Sony Online Entertainment.

"Moving to a free-to-play model allows the opportunity to expand the Vanguard universe by adding and tailoring content to appeal to all types of players. We have significant plans for new content that we cannot wait to share with the community. The development team is designing and implementing all new quests that take players through some of the most beautiful and challenging areas in the game."
- Andy Sites, Director of Development, Sony Online Entertainment.

The Vanguard Saga of Heroes new free-to-play system is now available to all PC players worldwide, including options for Free and Gold ($14.99 USD/month) memberships. For a more detailed comparison, there is a matrix detailing the new membership levels on the official Vanguard Website (link below).
