The MMO tied in to Syfy's TV series will go free-to-play as of July.
Developer Trion Worlds has made the move ahead of the première of the second series on SyFy in July.
Trion says that it intends for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game to go F2P on July 15.
Players who have previously paid for the title will get a host of extras in compensation, including 1,000 Arkforge (in-game currency), four character slots, 75 Ark Keycodes and over 70 inventory slots, as well as 30 days of Paradise Patron Status and an XP boost.
On top of this they'll get a ten per cent store discount.
