New newsletter came out for the Warhammer 40k MMO, Eternal Crusade. There is now a FAQ with lots of good info. One thing it explains the the business model which has a lot more detail explaining than previous information, here is the direct quote.

What business model will the game use?

Although it’s still under consideration, the current plan is that Eternal Crusade will be “premium with a free-to-play option.” By purchasing a copy of the game, you will have access to it forever with no need for a subscription. There will be post-launch expansions, as well as a cash shop for customization & convenience items. If you don’t want to buy the box, you can still try the game as a free-to-play version of an Ork character. As opposed to the premium Orks, your progression will be slower and some options will be locked off, but you’ll be able to go anywhere and fight for the Waaagh! If you like it but still don’t want to pay the full price, you can unlock some of the missing options with microtransactions.

Also the races at launch include Space Marines, Chaos Marines, Eldar and Orks with Tyranids being a strictly NPC faction. There will also be sub-races for each of the races that you can choose from to be from the Different Chapters, craftworlds or clans.

For more info head over to the link provided and check out the FAQ in the top corner.

“premium with a free-to-play option."

I wonder if they'll add Necrons at some point.

yeah I like it, it is buying like you would with guild wars 2 but with a free trial kind of thing to test the game

they probably will but they will be difficult to balance imo

I just like buying games and not being charged for each individual piece. And I can already hear the cries of "NERF GAUSS PLZ".

yeah it will be nice not having to pay a subscription either, I think I will probably be spending money on this for decoration stuff

I'm going to cry when my laptop can't run it.
