Free to Play
Free to Play refers to any video game that allows players to play without paying. SOE has announced that PlanetSide 2 will have a free to play component although full details are not yet available. John Smedley is quoted as saying that the team has looked at League of Legends. League of Legends' business model is based on the ability of a player to purchase novelty items and upgrades to character appearances, without needing to pay at all to play online.
