Champions Online Subscription Plans

The Champions Online Official Website outlines a couple of long-term subscription plans for Cryptic's upcoming MMORPG. They will be offering $59.99 six-month subscriptions with an in-game perk as well as $199.99 lifetime subscriptions (we somehow imagine Bill Roper's name will come up in discussing these), which offer additional in-game bonuses. Both plans also offer access to the Star Trek Online closed beta test, and the lifetime plan also offers a "Unique Mirror Universe outfit for Star Trek Online, available at the game’s release," for those planning on subscribing to Cryptic's other upcoming MMORPG along with their lifetime CO deal:

While you’re here, though, take a look at these exclusive specials you’ll get if you sign up for a 6-month or lifetime subscription! When you enter your pre-order key at the bottom of this page, you will be presented with these offers.

Lifetime Subscriptions come with:

    • Access to the Star Trek Online Closed Beta, beginning later this year!
    • Exclusive Art Deco costume set
    • Exclusive Retro Future costume set, available only to lifetime subscribers
    • Unique Mirror Universe outfit for Star Trek Online, available at the game’s release
    • Exclusive in-game Foxbat action figure, available only to lifetime subscribers
    • Eight additional character slots!

6-Month Discounted Subscriptions come with:

    • Saves $29.95 USD (33% off!) over regular monthly subscription!
    • Exclusive Art Deco costume set
    • Access to the Star Trek Online Closed Beta, beginning later this year!

A retail box or digital purchase is still required to play Champions Online after our launch on September 1st, 2009.

Yeah, after seeing what happened with Hellgate Id never do a lifetime sub haha. The only safe bet on a life time sub would "possibly" be WoW lol.

$200 is only ~14 months at $15/month or 20 at $10/month. Most decent "major" MMOs should last at least that long. CoH is over 5 years old, WoW and EQ2 are nearing 5 years, LOTRO is 2+, AoC is over a year old, WAR is getting close to a year. Tabula Rasa is the only "big" MMO I can think of right now that didn't quite last the 14 months (not to mention the end times were free).

Now, one part is if the game will survive long enough, the other is how long you'd actually be playing it/tempted to pick it up again for a month or two.
