More and more Facebook game developers are attempting the subscription route as opposed to relying on individual purchases from gamers, with CityVille being the next game to join that list. A new VIP Membership program has launched this week, allowing you to become a VIP and earn rewards each week for the price of $17 a month.
For that price, you'll receive a guaranteed 50 City Cash and 50 energy each and every week. On top of that, you'll receive a free land expansion for your city (but only if you sign up for the membership sooner, rather than later). Finally, VIPs will gain access to faster energy recharge, and double XP on actions, along with coupons and specific items in the store that are exclusive to VIPs.
If you'd like to see more about this feature before investing in the monthly subscription cost, you can head into the game's store and click on the new "VIP" ticket to see everything that's available. Some of the exclusive items are a VIP Mansion and VIP Garden (among many others), while some of the coupons apparently allow you to purchase City Cash for 20% or 30% off the original purchase price.
We'll make sure to let you know if additional features are added to this VIP Membership club in the future, but for now, just login to CityVille if you're already interested in signing up.
Will you join the CityVille VIP Membership program? Would you if the subscription price was cheaper? How much would you pay? Sound off in the comments!
