DC Universe Online MMO becomes Free-To-Play
DC Universe Online, available for both PC and PS3, is switching to the free-to-play model that many other Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) titles are adapting in the genre. During a live webcast last Thursday, it was announced that the transition is coming today.
There will be three subscription levels available, each with varying types of access to the game’s content. Legendary status is for those who still wish to pay the standard $15 a month to play DCUO and grants you all of the Downloadable Content (DLC) for no additional cost. The following membership level, Premium, is awarded after you spend at least $5 on the in-game store and will never expire once purchased. Finally, the completely free-to-play status has the obvious least cost but most restrictions on just about every aspect of the game, including chat functions.
There is a complete layout of all the subscriber listings on the DCUO website and you can check out the FAQ there as well.
