One Month Later: Battleborn’s Free Trial Doesn’t Retain Numbers

It’s been one month since Battleborn started its free trial, and while the game received an early boost it looks like most of those customers aren’t sticking around.

Randy Pitchford Denies “Reckless” Battleborn F2P Rumors

FFXIV: Trial Characters Eventually Expire

Free trials have finally come to Final Fantasy XIV, which means more people running around the world of Eorzea. One question that always pops up is how to deal with the army of dead characters that will be created and then never returned to. Square Enix has apparently thought of this problem and come up with a […]

RuneScape Free Trial Returns?

Last month I posted an article about a 14-day membership for new accounts.

Final Fantasy XI Is Crazy On XI-XI-XI: 14-Day Trial?

Do not adjust your monitors, the title of this article has been transmitted as intended: Final Fantasy XI has released a 14 day trial. Still surprised? So am I, but apparently the folks at Square Enix decided to pull down one barrier for entry into the aging-yet-enormous-to-an-almost-intimidating-degree MMO. If you were holding off on trying […]

Gods & Heroes Trial Extended: 7 Days

Seven days isn’t just enough time for a small Japanese girl to come out of your television and murder you. I’m going to go on a limb and guess that, although appealing to some, the three day Gods and Heroes trial just wasn’t long enough of a sample period for many prospective buyers. As a […]
