Now it's free what let you not play this game is rather old school in many ways its little bit themepark but not also sandbox but not.

It still have GREAT community and very help full.

But it's old school meaning no guidance no npc's with ! or ? above there heads no auction house but trade shops. You can drop your stuff on ground or stand for days ingame and never be booted.


No instance all dungeons are open for all.

Hardcore grinding and very deep crafting system both take YEARS to reach cap.

If grind is your thing and friendly help full community plus bit of old school with rather good graphics even 12 years old.

Come join.

    Beside Turbine creating total carebear content making AC1 pvp good was probably not on purpose. AC2 could have reached WoW success since it was its predecesor

    now that it is F2P  I will probably reinstall and leave it on my PC and log in for nostalgia and the crystal sounds.

    It isn't free. A one time payment of $10 for an Asheron's Call 'subscription' will get you 'free' access to Asheron's Call 2.

    Or a bit more precisely AC has sorta "b2p" model (f2p for those who played AC in the past), if you're new you need to pay $10 and then you can play AC for free (and play on the player servers too I think.)

    AC2 is only available for those who have an AC account. So in practice, as Grunty wrote, for playing AC2 as a newcomer you need to spend $10 for an AC account first... :)

    Looks like this is incorrect, i played ac in the past and i cant login to game.

    A quick search in the forum shows that you have to pay 10 bucks for the life time sub regardless if u played before or not.

     

    Edit

    Or it can be that turbine dont recognise that i have payed and played ac in the past going into the account and only see lord of the rings listed

    Or you could play Project Gorgon for a similar experience and get improved graphics.

    Played the game when it first came out, really didn't like it, it just wasn't all that good, and with so much time having passed since then, i can't see the game taking off again, especially when afaik the game is still 'circling the rim' i guess it might be the last chance for some to see what the game was like, although the original Asherons Call is probably a much better option in terms of actual gameplay, if not the graphics. image

    My bad, sorry... (ironically the whole point was to be precise :) )

    It was f2p to those who had an active, live AC subscription at the time of the switch, for them the sub fee disappeared, and they can play now for free. $10 entry fee to everyone else, hence the "b2p". Turbine calls it f2p rightfully since there are players who are playing free (just not many :) )

    Turbine has said they plan on shutting down official servers at some point and invite player run servers.  When this will happen is a bit unclear.  Player run servers are hit or miss.  If you are playing on someone's server they can just kick you if they don't like the fit of your jib , so to speak.  I think I'll pass.

    Here is some more information on player hosted servers if anyone is interested...

    Project Gorgon's graphics/animations aren't even good 10 years ago. The future of MMO's are looking bleak indeed if this game is being recommended to sandboxers.

    Most problems solved about botters most annoying are banned.

    If you want old school and dont care if it not look like Skyrim fully ENB modded, then this is your game.

    LOOK AT SCREENSHOTS ABOVE 12 YEARS OLD GAME.

    Seems not bad looking to me.

    Register downlaod AC2 client pay ones 10 dollars or 8 euros and you can play forever.

    AC2Forever!

    I need my hand held or I get lost/bored!

    I'm very uncreative.

    Might try it out eventually though.

    This - AC2 is not free to play, it's B2P

    The only thing I liked from AC2 was the player generated music, much like LOTRO but less scripted. Then came APB with in-game voice and music which to this day, blows my mind away. Probably the best 3D surround sound mechanic ever devised in an online game.

  • HadorakHadorak Leesville, SCMember Posts: 25

    AC2 is free to play, no micro payments, no recurring billing.

    AC1 is 10 dollars to create the account, that's it!!

    You get both games for creating 1 account for just 10 bucks !!!

    100 + levels of game play in AC2

    There simply is no better value then AC2

    A game so "great" one of its few remaining players has to beg for people to buy and play it so he/she won't be alone.

     

    LOL

     

    No.

    Beautiful oldschool mmorpg. For some reason it's one of my favourite online worlds, very immersive. Would advise any pve mmorpg lover to at least do a sight seeing, a historicaly educational visit if nothing else.

    Friendly community old school not infected with any todays crap.

    Yes it's a long grind but because already many high lvls they do most of quest running for yah.

    Many crafters and if you like crafting then you have a long way to go but no worrie it end soon.

    But even with high lvs and very helpful community it can still be very hardcore because of no ingame guidance and sometimes hard to find out things.

    If your willing to cope with this and want a almost 13 year old MMO but rather GOOD graphics then this is your game.
