Pay Monthly To Be Bombarded With In-Game Audio Ads


A would-be challenger to the massively multiplayer online game kingdom ruled by World of Warcraft, All Points Bulletin has already got the market leader beat in one department: annoying advertising.

The game is geared to stuff audio ads down the throat of users every time they enter a new district, Big Download reports. This sort of thing would be acceptable in a free-to-play title or advergame, but seems audacious in something that charges users $10 a month to play.

The first 50 hours of play are included with the $50 game.
