DC Universe Online Going Free to Play

Yes, you read that correctly. DC Universe will soon be free to play, come next month in fact. DCU was a game that I really wanted to love; I was so close to buying a lifetime subscription to the game when it first came out but the bugs made me change my mind. Well, that soon won’t be a problem for me anymore. Most of the bugs have been fixed, new things have been added to the game, and now it will become free to play!

Free
New players will now have access to the current gameplay in DC Universe Online (including Gotham City, Metropolis, and all current raids and alerts), with the ability to create two characters, join a league and many other benefits. Free level players will be able to purchase downloadable game packs/updates, additional character slots, powers and more through microtransactions.

Premium
Any player who has spent at least $5 (including former paid subscribers and new players who have purchased $5 of in-game items) will qualify for the Premium access level. Premium level players will have more benefits available to them than the Free level player, including additional character slots, additional inventory slots, and higher cash limits. Downloadable adventure packs, additional character slots, and more can be purchased in-game.

Legendary
Maximum features and benefits are included at this level. Loaded with enhanced additional features, Legendary access will be available for a $14.99 monthly fee and includes all DLC packs at no cost, more than 15 character slots, more than 80 inventory slots, the ability to form unrestricted-sized leagues, and many other benefits.

Anyone else other than me going to jump back on DCU as soon as it’s free? I’m seeing a Platform Nation DCU league starting up pretty damn soon!
