FF slot

Probably more news-worthy than regular weekly sales in other games (*cough* GTA Online *cough*) and maybe it will reach the news section later - afterall it ain't even mentioned officially by Cryptic either yet...
(no tweet, no forum post, nothing. Probably due to different timezones)

Long story short, everyone can claim a FreeForm slot for free.
Considering it's $30 (when not on sale, but discounted price still used to be $20), and it practically makes the game b2p (since the biggest f2p restriction is the lack of FF), it's a really nice giveaway.

Hopefully the official announcement will state both the reason and also the timeframe (during the weekend, for a week, etc.), until then it's only certain that you can claim it right now - so, don't be late :)

    I used to like this game but it was never worth the sub for me and the free version always felt too bare bones. I might check this out, thanks.

    I was just looking at this in my steam library, thinking of playing it again. I have no idea what free form is. I haven't played it since it came out how ever many centuries ago.

    I'm currently so bored that it physically hurts... my soul...
    If anyone could give me a hard sell on this game I would appreciate it. Please convince me that I should be downloading it right now. Lie to me if you must.

    if i'm not mistaken you can choose any powers from any type freely, making a jack of all trades. Non-freeform can only be a specific archetype.

    What rojo said, Freeform was mainly the difference between CoH and CO (I ain't saying this is why Cryptic moved away and made a new game though :) ), you can build your very own superhero by picking any power you like, from any powersets - with some limitations of course.

    When the game switched to f2p, it was again the core difference, just now between sub and free: free players are restricted to use Archetypes, pre-built power selections, kinda like classes in other MMORPGs.

    Subscribers could use both, either make their own heroes, or when didn't want to bother with it they could just take an AT for a spin - Archetypes are mostly decent, in some cases even good builds, if someone doesn't like the theory crafting and power building.

    But with the removal of monthly subscription the easy access to Freeform was kinda lost, it's either lifetime subscription, or individual Freeform slot purchases for $30 each...

    It's basically an extra character slot (with a background icon) and if you select it instead of a regular character slot (which only offers the ATs) you can select to create a Freeform character.
    After that you create the looks as usual, and start the game, since the difference is during gameplay.
    At certain levels you get a notification about you can learn a new power. On ATs it's defined by your archetype, but when your character is Freeform, you will have a list of powers to choose from.

    Yep, ingame store, bonus tab (last one), you can claim it from there.
    (or from the featured tab in the front page)

    Just noticed they finally made an official announcement, according to that the free slot will be available for a week.

    Pretty nice bonus out of the blue for non-subscribers.
