    Whether is be privateer or Wing Commander I was wondering if anyone knew about the billing plan. I know its far off, but do you think it would be like Quake's multiplayer where there is no charge or like EverQuest with a monthly fee?

    The reason for Origin's doing Privateer Online is undoubtedly Ultima Online's success. EA wants money. It'll be $10 a month, and $50 for the starter kit including 1 month game time. Count on it [​IMG]

    Also, and that's why they have to charge money, it's a persistent universe. It has to be maintained, it has members of staff walking around in it, it's constantly monitored for abuse, bugs, etc. If they wouldn't charge you, they'd lose money on it.

    Yeah I figured, but I thought I would ask. Thanks.
