Late last week, Crypic reactivated the lifetime subscription option for Champions Online, this time with an asking price of $299. For those of you who loathe maths, that's $99 more.
With the purchase of the lifetime package, users can net a Foxbat action figure--a miniature version of Foxbat to accompany you in-game--new costume sets, eight character slots, access to the VIP room, an exclusive costume piece, "Vanguard" perk and title, and "more."
As a regular Champions Online subscription runs players $14.99 per month, the lifetime subscription is equal to almost two years worth of monthly payments. However, in 2011, Champions Online is set to launch a free-to-play option.
Although the free option is limited, it does give players the ability to fight crime in Millennium City at rock-bottom, recession prices, and guarantees players are not infected with the crippling 'Why can't I afford to eat this year?' virus.
With loyal superheroes willing to shell out $300 for a subscription, it's no wonder Atari's online division did so well in the first-half of the year.
