OGPlanet Offers Full-Service MMORPG Using Free-to-Play Model
"The launch of cabal is a huge event for us," said David Hoffman, Executive Producer for OGPlanet. "The beta testing periods were met with a very positive reception, and we're anxious to watch CABAL's popularity in North America grow. We're thrilled to be able to provide an MMO of this caliber under a free-to-play model."
Although CABAL was developed with a subscription-based model in mind, OGPlanet is offering the game under a free-to-play system, consistent with the company's model. An option to purchase in-game items does exist, but the purchasable items will not be integral to the gameplay experience.
"It is important to us to find a balance ensuring our players the full experience of cabal alz without paying a penny," said Hoffman. "The items purchasable by Astros, our OGPlanet-wide in-game currency, will give players ways to make it from 'Point A' to 'Point B' more quickly, but won't give them any sort of permanent advantage over players who might not have the budget to utilize the Cash Shop. We're very pleased with the result: a free-to-play MMORPG with everything you would expect from a subscription-based game."
About CABAL ONLINE
In cabal alz, players are called upon to protect the people of Nevareth from an evil entity known as CABAL. Centuries ago, the evil CABAL all but destroyed Nevareth, but the land was saved and rebuilt by seven great masters wielding the ancient abilities of Force Power. Nearly a thousand years later, CABAL has returned, and it is up to players to master the intricacies of the Force Power and use them to save Nevareth.
Set in a diverse environment that includes ice temples, forgotten ruins, desert hideaways, mutant forests and volcanic citadels, CABAL engages players with dynamic quests that tie-in beautifully to the game's storyline and more than 300 dungeons to explore. With 170 levels, CABAL is conducive to either hardcore or casual game play.
