Terminal sci-fi MMORPG Tabula Rasa is free to play for all until its death on February 28, 2009. NCSoft had previously announced the game would be free-to-play beginning Jan. 10, but now new players can request a serial code from the support site and download the game. Former players can head to PlayNC.com and reactiviate using their account management settings. Credit card numbers will be requested, but no money will change hands.
Here's your chance to get a free Christmas present and play the game before its servers get wiped clean.
