Updated Tue, Jan 25, 2011 by Martuk

It's time to dust off that spandex and wash that mask. Champions Online launches superheroes into the free-to-play market today with the launch of Free for All. The official website and game servers are down for maintenance this morning, but when they come back online at around 6:00am PT; players can join in for some free-to-play action.

Free Champions Online accounts aren't without their limitations. You'll be playing with an Archetype hero as opposed to a Core build and you can find out how these two differ and what you get for free in our exclusive interview with Champions Online Executive Producer Shannon Posniewski.

Update: The Free for All launch day patch notes have been posted.


Perfect World Entertainment has already made the move to mobile and now they’re making plans to head into the console space.
