Here's a better one (by better I mean has more information), since I just did some searching:
http://www.polygon.com/2014/5/1/5669784/defiance-mmo-free-to-play-trion-worlds-pc-ps3

Apparently there'll be a livestream on Friday to talk about it.

An other one here http://www.mmorpg.com/gamelist.cfm/game/602/feature/8473/Going-F2P-in-June.html

Basically, we who have BOUGHT the game to play are forced into limited gameplay OR pay extra for subscription. Kinda feel screwed by TRION

It never had a subscription, and there's still no subscription announced. The ONLY thing changing is the base game will be free now. All the content (expect the min-expansions) will still be free to you. You're definitely not going to be limited as a previous owner. That would be the dumbest move possible from them.

All new and existing box copy owners will receive boosts, character shots, keys, and currency.

You're still getting more than free players just from being a current owner.

Read the interview on MMORPG.com that I linked. They're using patron system like in RIFT. Basically, Free2Play with subscription option for boosting certain features...

Scapes had posted in the forums about it, as well as updated the Defiance news page (on the official site).

You won't be losing out on anything if you don't get it though, you're actually going to gain some stuff from being a buying owner.

Wow, it's like someone at Trion said "You know, it's been a while since we did anything to really anger the people who have been playing since release... but I have a GREAT idea!"

Good. Now the rest of the gaming community can personally experience just how poorly this game is being handled by Trion.

What are they handling poor about it? It's had constant updates since launch.

But the 5 DLC's you still have to purchase?

I see TF2 hats in the future. ;)

Called it?
Do you feel special for something almost everyone who's tried the game predicted as far back as..I dunno.. launch? lol

Seems like the currently availabe DLC will remain as a separate purchase for now (no idea if it'll change at all or not), but any content updates after the switch won't be DLC that you purchase.

Is that so? That must be the reason why it's going free to play then.

Yes, updates like the consolified clunky piece of ♥♥♥♥ of a user interface which they have managed to make even worse than how it initially was.

Or are you referring to their wonderful weapon balancing? Yeah, that must be it.
