Vanguard Goes F2P Next Week

The Vanguard Players Website announces that Vanguard Saga of Heroes will be transitioning to a free-to-play model a week from Tuesday (thanks VG247). Here's what they have been doing to prepare for the new phase for this MMORPG:

The Vanguard Saga of Heroes transition to free-to-play is just around the corner! We are pleased to announce that the official launch date is Tuesday, August 14, 2012! Mark the date on your calendar!

Over the past couple of months, we have been working hard to improve the game in order to prepare for the influx of new and returning players. If you have not heard about all the changes, check them out for yourself in game and out of game! In the coming week, you'll start to notice even more changes as we move toward the official free-to-play launch.

Some of the more notable changes include:

  • New Website: Our official website has received a major facelift and has a new URL - http://www.vanguardthegame.com.
  • Vanguard Marketplace: The Vanguard Marketplace offers several categories to browse - Services, Mounts and Pets, Appearance and Equipment, and Housing.
  • Starting Areas Revamp: New characters will now start one of the following starting areas: Cliffs of Ghelgad, Tanvu, Three Rivers Village, Tursh Village, or the Isle of Dawn.
  • Removed Class Restrictions: We removed the class restrictions for all races. You can now create that special combination of character that you dreamed about making!

To view more changes, check out all the recent game update notes and log in game today!

We hope to see you in Vanguard soon!

Warhammer did that with public quests years ago and Rift does it with zone invasions and open grouping for events. That sure as hell isn't something revolutionary that they came up with for GW2. Honestly, even the implementation of it has been done better elsewhere.

Well, I disagree.
Warhammer Public quests were tacked on, not really part of the inherent design.

Rift... I couldn't say... never played it, but they seem to be an evolution to WAR's Public Quests.

GW2 from the ground up *is* designed around Dynamic Events, and it has a fairly natural flow of participation with players constantly reacting to the environment circumstances... but if you like... we can even say it is a further evolution of the "public quest" concept.

The point is... it is not anything that Brad would have come up with in his self-proclaimed "The Vision (TM)".
