Funcom extends the free offer on Anarchy
Online into 2007

The free phenomena continues in the ultimate sci-fi MMORPG

Durham, USA — September 13, 2005 – Funcom announces that the free Anarchy
Online offer has been a tremendous success and will be extended throughout all
of 2006 and into 2007*. It’s the long-term goal for Funcom to make sure that the
removal of subscription fees, client costs and the need to have a credit card
when registering for Anarchy Online remains a permanent offering. Now, and for
the year to come, anyone curious about the heralded qualities of the ultimate
sci-fi MMORPG can play without any financial commitments.

“The free initiative has been a great success,” says Trond Arne Aas, CEO of
Funcom. ”More than 400.000 new players have signed up during the last ten
months, and extremely few MMO titles can show a similar increase in
registrations in the same timeframe. Seeing the great feedback from the free
offer we are thus going to extend it into 2007 and beyond.”

This totally free approach allows everyone tired of elves, fairies and gnomes to
enter a futuristic RPG world full of fun action totally free of cost, and makes
it possible for all sci-fi fans to explore a world hailed as the best sci-fi MMO
available today.
