DC Universe Online will soon become free-to-play
There will be three new access levels; Free, Premium and Legendary, with all levels allowing open world gameplay and missions as well as game updates and fixes
DC Universe Online is going down the free-to-play route and will be free on both the PC and PlayStation 3 platforms.
It is said that Sony Online Entertainment is going to introduce three new access levels to the game. These will be Free, Premium and Legendary. All three levels will supposedly allow access to open world gameplay and missions, as well as general game updates and fixes. Each level is also said to offer different game options and benefits.
John Smedley, President, Sony Online Entertainment said, "When we launched DC Universe Online, we introduced a very different brand of massive online game driven by fast action combat to PC and PS3 gamers and with that, we discovered a new type of online gamer. We've listened to our community, and we've determined that the free-to-play model is the best fit for DC Universe Online."
Smedley also added, "Our philosophy embraces learning from our experience and as a pioneer in the free-to-play space with proven successful games like Free Realms and Clone Wars Adventures, we believe this new model will expand the DCUO experience and offer more options that cater to every type of player so they can play the game in a way that fits them."
The free-to-play option is said to commence in late October this year.
