Anyone know if this is going to be subscription based or f2p?

It's buy-to-play, like Guild Wars 2.

Good to see Bear McCreary ("Battlestar Galactica", "Caprica") at the helm of the music, but I haven't really heard much about this title. Post-apocalypse, futuristic Sci-Fi...what is it?
I haven't heard of the Sy-Fy show, so must go look it up.

Ah, now I see, it looks good:

It's an old sci-fi plot - aliens come, try to turn the Earth into their environment.

Oh right, like "V". That's original, and I have to say that the SyFy channel hasn't exactly lit the world of entertainment on fire lately.

No. V just had them stealing the water and kidnapping people for food.

Then "Skyline" or even "District 9" perhaps. I'll eagerly wait and see if SyFy can finally resurrect it's reputation post-"BSG" and the name change (terrible, terrible move that reflected the quality of what comes from it's 'creative department' these days).
