Paragon Studios announced that ‘City of Heroes’, their 7 year running Pay to Play MMO, will be adopting the Free to Play business model that seems to be so popular these days.

‘City of Heroes Freedom’ is to be more than a simple extension of the 14 free trial that new subscribers and pick up now.  New players will have 2 character slots, a level 50 cap using over 100 different power sets.

Granted, all of this sounds good and all.  But I’m not sure what they are going to be able to do about the whole boring and extremely repetitive gameplay.
