Richard Garriot’s latest online RPG creation Shroud of the Avatar now has a free trial which runs for a few days.
The free trial version of the Early Access game, which has been in testing since 2014 on Steam, comes with a few limitations but should offer enough to give players an idea of what it’s ab0ut. The trial limitations are as follows:
- Free Trial Current Time Period: March 3 – March 9, 2017
- The term (Visitor) is appended to their character name
- Cannot give items to other players via Trade
- Cannot purchase nor sell items via Player Vendors nor Public Vendors
- No ownership of property nor use of lot signs
- Cannot interact with public chests.
- Cannot move/interact with items on a plot even if they are given permissions.
- Cannot flag as Open PVP
- Cannot gain nor do they create any ransom items when they kill or are killed in PVP (in Open PVP zones)
- Character data may be deleted after Free Trial period is over if character is not upgraded to a paid account
- Items purchased in the Add On Store cannot be accessed after the Free Trial Period is over unless you purchase Game Access
- Cannot play in Offline Mode
If all that sounds reasonable enough, then as long as you meet these system requirements, you’ll be good to go.
