What is the difference between Gametime Hours and Gametime Unlimited - why the choice?
We believe that everyone plays online games at different levels of participation – some only play for a few hours per week or month, but many others play for several hours a week or more.
Because of this diversity, we are offering the choice in value based on your specific play-style.
The following Gametime packages are available at release:
GAMETIME Packages (RTW Points Cost)
Gametime 20 Hours (280)
Unlimited 30 Days (400)
Unlimited 90 Days (1140)
Unlimited 180 Days (2160)
Gametime Hours allow you to play at your own pace – jump in and jump out when you want, and only the hours you actually play in an Action District are consumed. In addition, Gametime Hours never expire without use – so you always know the time you’ve purchased will be available until used.
Gametime Hours are great value for those planning on infrequent or short play sessions.
Gametime Unlimited Each Gametime Unlimited package grants unlimited Action District access for a period of consecutive days.
Gametime Unlimited packages are a great value for those who expect to play frequently and in longer sessions.
