While online play was free for new and used copies of White Knight Chronicles, Sony appears to be shifting their strategy for White Knight Chronicles: Awakening of Light and Darkness. A leaked package shot of the sequel reveals a GeoNet license, a product code players have to activate before logging online.
New copies of White Knight Chronicles: Awakening of Light and Darkness come with a one-time use code. Buy a used copy and you’ll have to pay extra to play online. GeoNet licenses can be purchased from the PlayStation Store, but the jacket doesn’t say how much a license will cost.
