ArcheAge Switching to F2P in Japan

As of April 24th the Japanese version of ArcheAge will switch from a subscription model to a free-to-play model, reports Massively.

Japanese publisher GameOn announced the switch, and also an upgrade to the controversial 1.0 update the same day. The update increases the level cap from 50 to 55 and makes other balance and gameplay changes, but some players have complained that the update waters down ArcheAge’s “sandbox” do-anything gameplay in favor of more typical MMO “themepark” gameplay.

The subscription will still be available to Japanese players, and will provide “tons of bonuses.”
