So it's free to play now.
It's similar to the DDO free to play, as in not all content is available for free users, but the content that is available is so massive, it doesn't really matter.
I definitely recommend this game to any MMO fans.
Only download this if interested, though, as the standard graphics version is a 7gb download and the high res one was about 3gb more.
I'm playing on the world Brandywine.
