Throne: Kingdom at War is a free to play medieval strategy from Plarium, using their standard strategy formula players will be able to take command of their own keep and fight with other players as they assemble mighty armies. The game is a browser title and the developers say it is free to play, but let’s find out now how free the game truly is as we throw a bunch of questions its way and give it a final F2P score!
No. The game is a free to access browser game.
No (but…) ― -10%. Whilst it is not an automated repeat billing, players can purchase and optional VIP status for 24 hours, 7 days or 30 days with Gold currency, which provides a variety of benefits for the player based upon their VIP level. VIP levels are increased through purchasing points using the gold currency and applying them.
No. There are no expansions or DLC.
Yes – -5%. The game uses a “Gold” premium currency, which is earned in small part within the game but primarily is purchased with cash. Players can purchase gold or packages which grant an amount of gold along with various items and boosts (that can be acquired through gameplay or purchased with gold). Gold is also used to speed up construction on various buildings and training units.
Yes – -15%. Players can get a great deal of advantages, boosts and benefits with easy access to gold items. Whilst all items can be acquired simply by playing, the “pay for convenience” at early levels can quickly become pay for advantage later.
No. There are no UI customization options.
Yes. Players can choose their character/portrait, but in general there aren’t any major factions and races to choose from.
No. Players are free to trade with each other.
No. No, there are no limitations on bank and storage space.
Yes. All areas of the game are accessible.
No. All events, PVP and PVE content can be played for free.
Yes – +10%. Depending on whether a player wants to be end-game competitive or just play casually is a defining factor on how enjoyable the game can be. Playing casually then there’s lots to do and plenty of features that are free to access. However, at later game there are lots of players inevitably who pay for advantages constantly and being competitive without buying Gold or at least purchasing VIP levels will make things difficult.
