Vanguard: Saga of Heroes studio removes some restrictions for free-to-play users

Vanguard: Saga of Heroes publisher Sony Online Entertainment is lifting some of the limitations on the game's free-to-play offering while making its monthly subscription more attractive, the company announced today.

In an open letter, producer Harvey Burgess said the company wanted to increase the game's potential audience and "make it even easier for players to come back to Vanguard." As of today, players can choose any class and race, and play without any level cap, whether or not they pay for access to the game. Owning a house and creating guilds were also previously restricted to subscribers, but that's not the case anymore.

"We all believe that once you start playing the game without restrictions, you'll want to keep playing and will find our Membership option to be an even greater value," Burgess said. A Vanguard subscription costs $14.99 per month. Benefits include a 50 percent boost to XP; 20 percent discounts on certain fees; and two housing plots.

Vanguard: Saga of Heroes was developed by Sigil Games Online and released on Windows PC in 2007; Sony Online Entertainment acquired the studio later that year. The company made the game free to play last August.
