DC Universe Online F2P Starts Tuesday
Remember in September when we brought word that DC Universe Online was going free to play in October? Well, you may have noticed that it’s already October 29th and still no DCUO f2p. That’s because in the DC Universe, November is the new October. The F2P version of DCUO begins 1/1/11. The news was confirmed in a now-archived Sony Podcast (listed here).
As we mentioned, the new version of DCUO will have 3 tiers: Free, allowing players access to the current locales in DCUO (Gotham City, Metropolis and so forth), plus the ability to create 2 characters and access other content; Premium players, anyone who has already spent $5.00 or more on DCUO, which get them more benefits; and Legendary, which for $14.99 a month gets you everything other tiers get and more, plus total freedom from having to make microtransactions.
Of course, none of us will actually be playing DCUO, because Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception comes out the same day.
