9Dragons: Business Model Interview @ RPG Vault
by Inauro, 2006-09-07 22:45:00RPG Vault talks to Acclaim about the company's business model for its upcoming MMORPG, Archlord.
Jonric: How will your newly announced business model for 9Dragons work? What are the main components, and what key benefits does it offer potential players?More...
Howard Marks: It is quite simple; a player registers on the www.acclaim.com website or www.9dragonsgame.com and then downloads the game. Once installed, the player creates a character and starts playing. During play, we will display some advertisements. This supports the cost of running the game and of development. The player has the option at any time to purchase the premium package, which features a list of benefits including no advertisements. Prior to completing beta testing, we will announce the complete details for this package.
