ToA will be free to download. We will offer all new players a month of access to the full game for free. After that you will have 3 options:
1. A monthly subscription, which we expect to cost around $12.
2. Pre-paid game time. With this option, you will purchase a certain number of hours of game time. When you log in, we will deduct from your pre-paid game time for each minute you play, up to one hour. After one hour, you will not be charged for any further game time within a 24 hour period of the start of your play session, even if you play more than that. In other words, if you play ToA for five minutes within a 24 hour period, five minutes will be deducted from your game time balance. However, if you play ToA for six hours, only 60 minutes will be deducted from your game time balance. We haven't decided on pricing here, but it's intended as an economical option for the player who has more limited play-time.
3. Writs of Time. A Writ of Time will cost roughly $18 and can be redeemed for one month of unlimited game play. It can also be traded or sold to any player in-game (who can in turn redeem it or trade it). A percentage of WoT purchases will be donated to a charitable cause, which will be identified on our website and rotated periodically, but could include something like KickingItForward.org.
