If you’ve been wondering if or when you should jump into DCUO and possibly join the massive IHC league that lies within, maybe October would be a good time. Starting in October, the game will go free to play.
DC Universe Online’s long-rumored free-to-play model has finally arrived, splitting up the MMO’s payment models and accessibility between three increasingly priced tiers. “Free” players will have basic access and pay á la carte for some new content and features, “Premium” players will have slightly more access and options and “Legendary” players will pay $15 a month for what’s essentially an all-you-can-play buffet of what the game’s got to offer. If you already shelled out for DCUO on PC or PlayStation 3 any time between its January launch and the upcoming free-to-play switch, Sony says existing accounts with active paid subscriptions will be granted Legendary Access.
