City of Heroes Freedom begins today… For VIP heroes only

The inclusion of a free-to-play model to the superhero MMORPG City of Heroes will go live today, with the release of new content, including the update Issue 21: Convergence. Only VIP players (meaning those who pay the subscription) are able to explore this new zone and other privileges for now, with free players having to wait a few more weeks for the official worldwide launch.

Players who choose to go free will be able to reach the highest level of the game (level 50), but will only have access to 8 archetypes of heroes and villains and are limited to the creation of two characters.
