They recently dumped the subscription model... so for $10 you get unlimited access to 15+ years of content. One of the truly unique parts to AC is that they added content every month for that 15 years. A quick pro's and con's for those who might be interested in a fantasy ish game.
$10 get's you a game that has 180+ content patches.
Fairly simple gameplay so younger players can pick it up and play along
Virtually no gore / adult content... so family friendly
The whole game download is about 1 gig, so you aren't stuck DLing forever
Dated graphics, this is a game that was made with dial up in mind
Fairly low player count with a HUGE game world (I recommend frostfell)
Not much in the way of hand holding... quests don't have arrows pointing you at objectives.
All in all I'm happy with the purchase, for the price of a tier 6 ship my whole family is running around in game together and I'm not stuck explaining what needs to happen next to complete a fight. Now I may have a bit of nostalgia blinding me to the terrible graphics but as I said we're all enjoying ourselves together which is something we couldn't do in STO.
