DC Universe Online, the massively multiplayer online game from Sony Online Entertainment, is now Free-to-Play for both the PS3 and PC. That’s right folks, you can download DC Universe Online from the PlayStation Store for free and play it for free, no monthly fee is required!
If you’re a new player you can play the game for free. But if you buy a few items from the marketplace or a DLC pack (worth at least $5), you’ll get permanently bumped up to Premium Access which will give you extra features, including more character and inventory slots.
You can also choose to move on to Legendary membership for a monthly fee of $14.99 and have access to maximum game features and all DLC packs. Current players will have this type of membership, but if you drop it you will be moved to Premium Access. Former players will be granted Premium Access automatically.
“We are confident that going free-to-play will expand the action combat experience of DC Universe Online by making the game more accessible to every type of player so they can choose to play the game their way,” said John Smedley, President, Sony Online Entertainment.
And before I sign off, here’s a new trailer to celebrate:
