Blizzard’s newest update, released today, for World of Warcraft, bringing something that could possible point towards what many have been hoping for a long time.
Today, players of the most popular MMORPG, World of Warcraft, were introduced to an in-game store, allowing for the purchase of game items such as pets and mounts. Previously, players had go to alt+tab out of the game and go to Blizzard’s website to purchase these items. As a bonus, Blizz is selling some of the items for 50% off the original price for a limited time. (Pic prices are from test realm.)
“How does this point towards free-to-play?”, you might ask? I’ll respond with what I’ve been saying for years. There are two sure ways to tell when an subscription-based MMO is headed to F2P:
1. The closing/condensing of servers.
Both of these things happening is not required. One or the other will begin and then a few months down the line appears the “announcement”.
Check out Blizzard’s WoW site or the in-game store for full list of items.
