Default Hellgate London - Interview @ Shacknews

October 30th, 2007, 14:13
Shacknews talks to Bill Roper in an article-format conversation as Flagship tries to sell their subscription model:
The first major set of new subscriber content will come in Patch 1, an ambitious package set to release this December. For some context, the tweak-heavy Patch 0 that will go live when the game launches weighs in at around 30MB, while Patch 1 is closer to 300MB. In general, Flagship plans to release that level of new material approximately every three months, meaning Patch 1 is coming earlier than it would have. Roper said Flagship felt a December release made sense for the first new content expansion, slotting into the holiday season and providing an initial example of what players can expect long-term.
More information.

So 30 bucks per content patch. This new business model will either be the best thing since sliced bread or a disaster. Watching this as it unfolds but certainly not buying into it yet.

You dont have to keep the sub on all the time. You can wait six months and then enjoy 2 content patches for 10 bucks.
