Forge Goes Free-to-Play

The Forge website has an update from a week ago announcing this multiplayer arena shooter is now free-to-play. They explain their philosophy about this: "Well, we continue to stand by our commitment that Forge will not be pay-to-win. As you see from our item store already, items are cosmetic. We hope in the future to add customization to cosmetic items as well. So the assassin could have a different dagger that gave her some kind of customization as well. For now, we will offer armor sets and XP boosts. We will be introducing 4 new sets including Bivröst Armor, Gullveig’s Armor, Armor of Muspelheim, and new war-painted helms: the Bardajalmor. For a while we had the idea of being a little more of a Freemium offering and charging for Progression. We have since decided from feedback from all of you to drop this idea and allow all access to the Item Store." A new version 1.11 patch is now live. Thanks Massively.

You still need to buy the game, there is just no monthly fee anymore
Not according to the Steam Store, you can just click "play" and hop in.

I guess they are advertising the Starter Pack on the main Forge website:
Forge- Available Now
That says $20 and No Monthly Subscription.

Confusing!

Steam does the same thing...War Thunder went on there a few days ago, and under New Releases, they feature several packs you could buy.

Strictly pvp games always seem to die on the vine. Don't see anything different for this one...
