Though the free download will not withhold any of the core gameplay elements, there will be certain features that will only be enabled in online play. The main feature that will be missing will be the ability to play against people online -- other than those on their LAN. Additionally, for players wishing to build their character and save their overall stats, persistent items and experiences, purchasing an account for $29.99 will be the only way to go, thus allowing them to play the game online with other real players on servers hosted by S2 Games.
While LAN play will be free for non-commercial/personal use, LAN centers or companies wishing to use the game in LAN mode for commercial purposes will need to obtain licensed copies from S2 Games.
