The trend continues for most subscription-based MMOs to eventually abandon their monthly payment requirements and head into the free-to-play arena. The latest game to go free-to-play is the post-apocalyptic MMO, Earthrise.

Masthead Studios and Iceberg Interactive announced today that the independently developed MMORPG, Earthrise, will transfer from pay-to-play to free-to-play. Monthly subscriptions will end beginning December 1st, next Thursday, and following thereafter players will no longer be required to pay to play. Iceberg will continue to provide a boxed retail version of the game at a budget price in select European outlets.

Of course, most people are probably curious about the actual game and whether or not it’s actually worth playing. A brief overview of the storyline is as follows…
There is a unified government that takes good care of those citizens who abide its strict laws. It appears paradise might have really come to Earth and the people have embraced it. But not everything is as perfect as it seems. By exercising full control over the cloning process, Sal Vitas' government decides who will live and who will not, playing the role of God on Earth. Insurgent forces have accused the city's rulers of crimes against humanity. Armed factions fight for resources and power within the new system. And from the waves of discontent, a revolution has fomented forming a rebel government: Noir.

It’s a lot like Fallen Earth but with a more diverse atmospheric setting. The create-a-character is also similar to Fallen Earth insofar that players will advance and increase their character’s stats and abilities in a free-form fashion. Add-on the player-driven economy and you have a nice little niche MMO for those who want something other than a typical medieval-fantasy experience. You can learn more by visiting the .
