You have to create an account, which can be done through the game interface. Go forth and kick arse my son, because it is free.
There should be a patch out soon, so go ahead and check it out now so you can see the difference. There are suppose to be a lot of changes to the game, which may make it better or it may make you hate it.
Hopefully you will like it, before and after.
