Sony Online Entertaintment has released new details of the Vanguard: Saga of Heroes F2P conversion

Sony Online Entertainment is converting its subscription-based game Vanguard: Saga of Heroes into a free-to-play MMORPG.

The game is expected to start its F2P mode this summer. Until then, SOE will release within the next few weeks some game updates and more information about what the F2P model will offer.

"We've had a dry spell of game updates over the past few months," said Andy Sites, SOE's Director of Development. "That said, I'm happy to announce the drought will be coming to an end this week, with our first scheduled update since last December. We plan to roll out game updates MUCH more frequently than years past, which will include general improvements, new content and more."

"A few weeks ago, we began ramping up the Vanguard development team with some familiar faces. Our criteria was simple; we wanted the most Vanguard-knowledgeable, passionate developers," he continues. "While we plan to continue growing the team over the next few months, I wanted to briefly introduce a few of our team leads, including Salim "Silius" Grant (Creative Director), Todd "Hobart" Schmidt (Technical Director) and me, Andy Sites (Director of Development). Fortunately, I am the only noob to the world of Vanguard, although having been part of the original EverQuest, EverQuest II, Free Realms, and Clone Wars Adventures teams, I've spent most of my career working on MMOs."
