The Tabula Rasa Website has word that Tabula Rasa is subscription-free as of right now, about a month earlier than was planned when closure of the MMOFPS was announced (thanks Massively). This offer is open to new players as well as those who have played the game already, though there is no indication that the plan to close the game down at the end of February has changed. On a related note, the Interview with Auto Assault's Scott Brown on Ten Ton Hammer talks with the NetDevil designer about plans to kill Tabula Rasa, since Scott worked on Auto Assault, another MMORPG shut down by NCsoft for underperformance. While he doesn't have all the facts at hand, he doesn't understand why you would shut a game down: "So basically what happens is the game doesnít meet expectations and people start trying to figure out how the game is going to make a profit. In the case of Auto Assault, NCsoft opted to just close the game versus running it with a smaller team. I donít have any insight into the situation, but it looks like they did the same sort of thing with Tabula Rasa. On the other hand, with the original Jumpgate we just scaled our team back until it was profitable. I really donít understand why youíd ever shut off a game, in my opinion."
