Just noticed at the launcher that right now there is a free trial (something akin to the Diablo 3 friends codes) ... Ive been wanting to play this game again since the beta :( I wonder if any duder/dudette out there could give me a free code ... or if not me someone else in these forums that would like to try out as well

Can't you just download an 'unlimited' free trial that let's you play up to level 15?

edit: Turns out, yes.

Be aware free trial limits you to RIGHT at 15. No more leveling. It also limits your sidekick skills and all that.

Yeah but not completely, it will probably go fully free to play at some point, but i dont think anytime soon.

Also level 15 is pretty much the 'fun part' of the game. The story quests are really fun, but later on it definately bcomes more grindy, general MMo fare.

I think we'll be seeing it sooner, rather than later... 


20/12/11: Game is released.

10/07/12: Game is now free up to level 15.

That's 6 months and 20 days from full price to free trial, for a game that cost something in the region of $175 million. 


February, 2012: 1.7 million subs.

May, 2012: 1.3 million subs.  

July, 2012: I would guess at a number less than 1 million subs.

Sooner, rather than later.
