Free-to-play Dungeon Fighter Online heading to XBLA

Following in the footsteps of the PS3's addition of the free online title FreeRealms, the Xbox 360 is about to get its own open-world, free-to-play experience - Dungeon Fighter Online.

As part of the transition from PC to Xbox Live Arcade, Microsoft will help translate Nexon's game into eight different languages, opening the title's availability not only to a new crowd of gamers but entire new populations.

Korean software company Softmax is also helping port the game to the Xbox infrastructure. And, just like on PC, players will be able to download and play without spending a dime, but in order to get new items and upgrades, they'll have to pay.

The "freemium" business model has hit the PC, smartphones, and tablets, so it was just a matter of time before it starting creeping into consoles.

    I wonder if we can use our characters from the pc version on the xbox version. I sure hope so

    Hell yes! I got incredibly addicted to this during summer but school killed it quick. Now I can give it another go.

    DFO won't run on my craptop so I'm glad I'll get a chance to play this.

    That might actually make me want to play the game more. It was cool enough, but loading Dungeon Fighter was just on the edge of annoying that made me rarely get to the point of booting it up.

    Oh I would pay for this, but free is fine too. Can't wait.

    UGH Id rather have this on my ps3 than freerealms. Nexon should collaborate with the Sony

    Now if they only did this with Vindictus, I would be one happy camper.

    This is one of the only free-to-play games I've ever really enjoyed. Hopefully it'll be even better with a controller.

    I love the PC version, I'm just not a huge fan of using a keyboard to play games, and my computer kinda sucks. I can't wait to get a controller to play on my 360.

    So, Silver players can play it?

    I wonder if the achievements (if it has any) will be linked to the 'freemium' content.. Sounds like a good time, though...
