Guild Wars 2 is going to feature a hybrid system that isn’t seen in MMOs often. Once you buy the game for $60, you won’t pay any subscription fees, and you’ll have access to a “F2P store” of sorts, that allows you to conduct micro-transactions for aesthetic gear.

The major upfront perk is that once you buy the game, you can come back at anytime, even years later to continue your adventure. This is one of the biggest disadvantages of current MMOs (The Old Republic immediately comes to mind) — you have to pay the entire monthly fee to even get a taste once your subscription runs out. If you just want to go back into your world and see your character again, you can do that.

The President of ArenaNet stating the following regarding the micro-transaction issue: “We think players should have the opportunity to spend money on items that … offer more ways to express themselves … on account services and on time-saving convenience items … But it’s never OK for players who spend money to have an unfair advantage over players who spend time.”

Well, that settles that. Hopefully ArenaNet will succeed in this ambitious endeavor, and influence the increasingly conventional MMO genre going forward.
