38 Studios' Amalur MMO 'Project Copernicus' Would Have Been Free-to-play

"We were going to be the initial triple-A, hundred-million-dollar-plus, free-to-play, micro-transaction-based MMO," Schilling told Boston Magazine . "That was a of the large secrets."

Schilling went on to say that Copernicus' position as a free-to-play MMO would have been the "atom bomb" that "shocked the world," once the diversion finally debuted. Copernicus' non-subscription design was moreover a of 38 Studios' strongest selling points during late-stage bargaining with prospective investors, according to Schilling, and that talks could have been kept alive were it not for Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee's adverse open tone.
