Tabula Rasa goes free

Two months of free gameplay before the servers close

NCsoft has made MMO Tabula Rasa free-to-play for all until its servers shut down on February 28, 2009.


The publisher announced last month that the formerly subscription-based MMO "wasn't generating the revenue" it needed to make sustaining it worthwhile, hence its impending closure.

But before then Tabula Rasa has been made free for all, says the company, which has just released all new game content in the form of "Earth, PvP Wargames, Epic Caves of Donn and more".

New players looking to sample the game will need to activate an account using a credit card, but NCsoft says that it's only for identification purposes and that no charges will be made to the card.
