The cost of a monthly subscription to Roll20 will increase from July 1st, the virtual tabletop has announced today.
The cost of a Plus will increase to $5.99 and Pro monthly subscription will increase to $10.99.
The annual cost for a Plus account rises from $49.99 to $59.99 and the Pro subscription rises from $99.99 to $109.99.
Free accounts will remain free.
It is the first time the platform has increased the subscription price. The service has been running for nearly 10 years, has introduced dynamic lighting, token markers, APIs, macros and other enhancements.
Roll20 weathered the surge in interest in online RPGs in general and caused by the pandemic. However, it also faces fierce competition. Fantasy Grounds is a software, not browser, based alternative which now has a Unity version and a deal with Wizards of the Coast, Astral Tabletop is partnered with DriveThruRPG, Foundry is growing quickly on its pay-once-own-forever model, and Mythic Table is free for life, open-source and edging towards a Kickstarter goal that will enable it to hire full-time developers.
Any Roll20 user who subscribes before July 1, 2021, will have their next two years of costs “locked-in” at the old, lower rate.
- Roll20 price rise.
Update: 30th April: An earlier version of this article incorrectly said that the price rise was from $5.99 to $10.99, nearly double.

Hi! Hi! The article is incorrect. We’re raising monthly prices by $1/month for both Plus & Pro tiers. Monthly prices for Plus & Pro subscriptions will increase to $5.99 & $10.99/month, respectively. Annual subs will increase to $59.99 for a year of Plus, & $109.99 for a year of Pro.
Thanks for spotting that Dylan. I’ve updated the article, marked the correction at the bottom with a date stamp for clarity and entered the error in the update log so there’s a public record of it there.
Just one more thing: “The cost of a Plus will increase to $5.99 and Pro monthly subscription will increase to $5.99 and $10.99.”
read: “The cost of a Plus will increase to $5.99 and Pro monthly subscription will increase to $10.99.”
One correction to the above: the annal cost for a Plus subscription is going from $49.99 per year to $59.99 per year. The annual cost for a Pro subscription is going from $99.99 per year to $109.99 per year.
