Nevrax Announces Episode2 and a New Pricing Policy

PARIS, FRANCE – September 29, 2005 – Nevrax, the developer and publisher of the massively-multiplayer science fantasy game, The Saga of Ryzom, announced today the launching of Episode 2 of the game’s epic storyline and the coming introduction of PayByCash, with non-credit card payment options for Ryzom players.

Episode 2 is a series of dynamic events that are part of the overall storyline, supported by new gameplay features. Ryzom’s players will have the opportunity to really dive into the storyline and impact the game by helping to determine the outcome of the episode. Nevrax starts patching the first content of Episode 2 on September 29 and will continue to add content with a patch on October 6th.

On October 3rd, Nevrax will change the Free Trial and the acquisition of the game. The Free Trial period will be reduced from 14 to 7 days, but the cost of converting to a paid subscription, which includes the software, will be lowered from $29.99 to $14.95, which includes the first month’s paid subscription fee.

On October 10th, Nevrax will begin offering a new payment solution with PayByCash, a system that lets the player get a Ryzom subscription without having to make recurring debits from a bank card.

“The Saga of Ryzom is getting more and more attractive and accessible to players,” said David Cohen Corval, Nevrax’s founder and CEO. “With the addition of the PayByCash billing options and the new free trial offer and price, we have further removed barriers to trying this unique online game.”

    Oh, great scenario. Now I can't even give it a try if I 'wanted' to. Thanks a lot!! <sarcasm>

    Personally, I think they're shooting theirselves in the foot by not allowing a free trial. No new player is bad for business. And even if it is for 7 days, it's still not enough to really gather an accurate description for the casual player.

    They are still allowing a free trial but its for seven days.  Tho I agree its a bad move to lower it.  Maybe the lower payment to buy the game to $14.95 would be an incentive to bring people for the free trial.  Personally I think its a pretty good deal.

    Have played: CoH, DDO EQ2, FFXI, L2, HZ, SoR, and WW2 online
