Quest Online announced that their fantasy-based MMOG title Alganon has gone Subscription Free. Not to be confused with Free to Play (F2P), since there is still a purchase price "to prevent Alganon from being saturated by gamers who have no investment in the game they are playing. Even though we are subscription free most gamers prefer to play with others who are committed to the game to some degree."

That's just one of the big changes coming for this game. The full Official Release for Alganon is scheduled for April 8th and includes features such as the Tribute Market System, Dungeon Instances and a fully redesigned Starter experience.

As for players who already pre-paid, Quest Online has a solution. All Subscribers are being converted into Citizens and what was paid will be converted to Alganon Tribute, a new in game currency system. Pre-Paid quarterly players will get 839 Tribute, semi-annual will get 1,559 Tribute and annual will get 2,878 Tribute deposited into their accounts after the April launch.

Alganon has more than two years of expansions and feature enhancements planned for its players, including new races, classes, and domains. Large scale-combat, deity patronage, and crusades are just a few of the upcoming features players can begin to prepare for as they utilize the powerful real-time study system to define their character's future goals.
