NCSoft has annoucnced that Black & Soul is coming to West. With that the game will be now a free-to-play model with micro-transactions.

It would be using Ncoin which is also used for Aion and Lineage II. The micro-transaction can be used for character slots, inventory slots, food and experience potions and tons more. players will also be able to learn a “special free currency” that will enable them to buy the identical kinds of items.

They will be having a premium membership only for the West where players can progress though the membership tiers so they can earn “cool special effects for their Windwalk skill and boosts to XP and¬†currency drop rates.”
