DC Universe Online goes free play

A Superman sized kick in the teeth for anyone that’s been paying to play DC Universe Online, as Sony announce it will soon be free to play.

On the 1st of November DC Universe Online will have two new modes, free play and Premium.  Free play, as the name suggests, doesn’t cost a thing, but has no voice chat and a limited number of character spaces and inventory slots.  For a one off payment of five dollars, or the equivalent of five dollars, players can upgrade to a Premium account, this means voice chat and more slots.  Some people may be used to paying and could want to continue, as crazy as that sounds, this will be an option, it’s called a Legendary account.  With that you can the same features that players are currently enjoying, including the ability to buy more inventory slots.  Legendary mode costs 15 dollars a month.

Before it came out, I thought DC Universe Online sounded amazing, but I decided not to buy it when I heard it cost a monthly fee.  Bringing on a free play mode, with an optional upgrade, is a great way to bring on people that, like me, didn’t want to, or couldn’t, afford to invest so much into a game.  In my opinion, it’s going to get some fans through the door.

What do you think?  Are you already playing DC Universe Online?  Did you not buy it due to the cost?  Would you get it for the free play feature?  Let me know by voting and leaving a comment below.  Also don’t forget to subscribe/follow and click the like button.

    I think the game will become more popular now that it’s free. I think players who have been paying so far should be compensated in some way. The game looks good so hopefully playing it will be good.
