Ever want to play a free MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game like Everquest) and thought forget that, I ain't payin a monthly fee to play no game. Well, now you don't have to. Check out Anarchy online
. You can download the original (no expansions) for free and play it for free for a year (well, until January 15 2006).
I'm downloading it over bittorrent right now and will see if there are any strings attached probably Monday.
The only strings I see, is if you want to play the expansion packs you have to shell out an extra $30 each
. So if you want to play the whole thing it'll still cost you $90.
EDIT: I found the string. If you order ANY
of the expansion packs they will start charging you a the monthly fee. But if you can live with the original this is still a good offer. They're counting on you liking it enough to buy an expansion pack and start shellin out the money.
