Star Trek Online, the once subscription fee turned free-to-play MMO is celebrating it’s 4 year anniversary. STO went f2p back in January of 2012, and many thought it spelled doom for the game and it’s future. Perfect World Entertainment shared with us this fancy infographic via GamesPress that this isn’t the case, and in fact, the game is still kicking 2 years after the decision. It should be noted that many companies were forced to fit the f2p model during this time due to lack of paid subscribers and the overall success of the in-game transactions systems to replace the fee.
That being said, happy anniversary STO! More info can be found at startrekonline.com
