My unqualified opinion is that it ain't worth the time for "free" Especially since, as someone else already said, while you can play solo for free and it will make you wish it was a SP game... you are so extremely limited in free mode that even the tiniest interaction with other human players, which might at times be necessary for your enjoyment, is near impossible or *extremely* restricted. So you get a few kinda interesting stories, but don't expect any substantial production quality.

Also btw, unlike blues text there may be 87 million characters, but there sure as hell are not 87 million players When I played (solo) I encountered maybe 10 other players as a whole during the entire time.
