A few years ago WinchGate, owner of Ryzom, chose to open the game to the world for Free, releasing its code and to be the only open source MMORPG, playable on Windows, Linux and Mac.
However, maintaining Ryzom does involve costs, such as compensation for the small team of employees and payment for servers. That is why, even though Ryzom is playable as Free to Play, subscriptions are vital for it to continue.
To thank the players chosing to subscribe, certain features of the game are unlocked and certain bonuses are offered to them; an opportunity to level their characters to level 250 instead of 125, doubling all experience points gained, and access to several other means of storage.
