Global Agenda drops subscription

All MMO shooter's features now free.

Hi-Rez Studios is dropping the optional subscription fee for its massively multiplayer sci-fi shooter, Global Agenda.

Previously, much of the online game was playable as a standard one-off retail purchase, but you had to pay a subscription to access some features, including the large scale Agency-versus-Agency metagame.

From now on, all features will be free to play, and the game will support itself by selling content updates as optional paid expansions. The first of these, Sandstorm, will be offered for free, however.

There's also a 33 per cent discount on the game on Steam until 5th July, as part of the download service's summer sale, which brings it in at £16.74.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our policy.
