Free to Play Games

The real life scoop on how “free to play games” make money 

Ever since Artix Entertainment was founded in 2002, we have embraced the Free to Play Games model. Artix always dreamed of making fun games that everyone could enjoy, and all our games are free to download and free to play.

But… how does a video game company make enough money to support their team of dedicated programmers, artists, writers, game designers, and coffee-deliverers, while at the same time paying for bandwidth, advertising, traffic, web domains, and ninjas?

The answer: Artix has to rely on YOU.

Memberships and Microcurrency bundles (in AQW’s case, Legend upgrades and AdventureCoins, respectively) are how Artix Entertainment stays afloat. Some players might think we’re just money-grubbing individuals, spending their hard-earned cash on expensive cars, fancy dinners, and lavish parties...

In addition to his clever Vine, Cysero also wrote this AMAZING Facebook post about where all the money goes from Membership and AC sales:

real cysero facebook post free to play games money

Please take a few moments and read that over—it’s well worth it. Here’s the TL;DR version:

“Making a game and keeping it alive is very expensive, and all the money that you pay AE goes back into the games. We're not getting rich off you guys—we're just making ends meet THANKS to you guys. AE is YOUR company; you built it and you keep it alive. Thank you. 

With all that being said, everyone here at Artix Entertainment hopes you continue playing and enjoying all our games! And, should you wish to see Artix thrive for years to come, won’t you please consider supporting us by upgrading to a Legend and/or buying AdventureCoins?

How to Support AdventureQuest Worlds

The Ultimate Game Card is retiring September 30, 2014

Mondays suck. And what sucks even more is that the Ultimate Game Card is going permanently rare on 9/30/2014 =(

Ultimate Game Card ending

This was not decided by Artix Entertainment, nor was it some evildoing by EbilCorp ninja robots.

UltimatePoints (aka UPoints) will also be going rare. The last day to redeem your UPoints is Friday, October 31, 2014.

Find the nearest stores that have the Ultimate Game Cards!

Exclusive UGC In-Game Item!

AQWorlds wants to make sure you get the most bang for your buck while you still can. So when you use your Ultimate Game Card to upgrade to a Legend Membership, and/or to buy AdventureCoins, you will get the exclusive Ultimate Game Claymore sword!
