Dark And Light - Free to Play @ Official Site
The official Dark and Light forums have word that the MMO will be free to play pending a new billing model.
Dark and Light is currently being improved and heavily reorganized. Due to this and several other problems encountered with the billing service, we have decided to stop using this service and to find another partner.
As a direct consequence of this decision, Dark and Light is now totally free, without any kind of restriction, until a more satisfying solution can be set up in the months to come.
This is applicable to all accounts that were already created, whatever may be their current subscription type – Master, Freedom, or Discovery.
Due to the termination of this service, any billing or invoicing is of course stopped, including for accounts that were already opened.
A new system of account creation will be set up in the days to come to allow newcomers to also access Dark And Light for free.
The Dark and Light Team.

Dark And Light - Free Access
Farlan has announced they are offering a free access to Dark and Light. Here's the mailout we received:
No access fees, no subscription...Dark and Light Game Access becomes free*!
Dark and Light, new access mode revealed: Discovery Mode
Come back to Ganareth and invite your friends to join you in this adventure!
It’s all very simple: All you need to start playing is a valid Dark and Light Forum account.
It’s free: As soon as your forum account is activated, you can start playing immediately for free.
No time limit: This access is active for the whole lifetime of Dark and Light.
What’s the trick? No trick, just the goal to give most players the chance to start an unlimited adventure in the world of Ganareth.
>From the 10th level, the gamer continues the adventure with no limit but he cannot collect more XP points (Fighting, Social, and Craft).
If he decides to keep progressing though Ganareth, he will have to buy a Dark and Light activation key and will have to choose to be either a Freedom or a Master player.

Dark And Light - Interview @ Ten Ton Hammer
Farlan Entertainment's Géraldine Lescs has been interviewed at Ten Ton Hammer about Dark and Light. The Q&A opens with an odd question considering the game ceased billing players while they reorganised:
Jeff "Ethec" Woleslagle, Ten Ton Hammer: Our congratulations for a fairly smooth launch for such an ambitious game. I do have to ask though: five hundred quests at release sounds like a fairly low number for such a vast 10,000 mi2 game world. World of Warcraft has over 3,200 quests, by contrast, in a much smaller game world (roughly the size of the greater New York City metro area between its two continents, or about 300 square miles, by ). Would you say Dark and Light's focus is on exploration rather than achieving levels quickly through completing quests one after another, or are the rewards for DnL's quests bigger than what MMO gamers are accustomed to?
Géraldine Lescs, Farlan Entertainment: First, the payers who enter the world of Ganareth do not access to the whole world but only Dark, Light, Al Drifa, Ysatis and Agnar kingdoms, which surface is not as large as the whole world of Ganareth. Second, we always claimed that Dark and Light was offering real freedom. This is why we decided not to force our players to quest all the time but incite them to explore, meet other players, create guilds, build their own world; not only questing.
We didn't reach all our objectives as, due to the size of the world anyway, players needed to be handled at the beginning. This is why we implemented new quests and we reworked the starting zones in order to help players to evolve faster and easer through the world of Ganareth. Very soon, all the players who will enter Dark and Light will be welcomed in a unique starting zone, all players of an alignment being gathered in the same zone.

Dark & Light: Review @ MMORPG.com
Take the world of an MMORPG, multiply it by a hundred and add complete freedom of movement and a fluid day/night cycle with changing seasons and weather. This is Dark and Light. The world of Dark and Light is so huge that you can actually get lost in it. You can spend hours just exploring and enjoying the wonderful views of bright deserts, snowy mountain peeks and dark caverns. Unfortunately, this big beautiful world is pretty much empty.More...
The environment may never stop impressing, but the character models certainly do. They do not make good use of the current technology and their animations are at times silly. In fights your character sometimes swings his sword in circles above his head before hitting the enemy. The characters do a disservice to the environments they populate.
