Alright, as some of us know, DC Universe was said to be a monthly subsciption thing. But now it's free to play both on it's official website and on steam.

What's going on? Is it free-to-play but pay for special items and abilities? Is it just a beta phase where it's free for awhile? I've googled but found nothing other than some websites saying there is a monthly subscription and others saying it's free to play.

It's free to play, but then you can purchase premium subscriptions which grant extra character slots and a bunch of extra content. It is not in beta phase and is a full game. I didn't find it too fun when I tried it, but a LOT of people seem to love it.

I'll test it out and maybe say what's happening in the game.

Free to play. Purchase 500 SOE coins for *any* of the current SOE games (not Star Wars Galaxies for obvious reasons), and you can get "Premium" membership. Still F2P, but more char slots.

The game better be worth it though, 15gb large...

It seems different from the usual MMORPGs. Feels more like Guild Wars now.

Well, it's quite enjoyable. The customization is a bit less, but the gameplay seems fine (buttonsmashing). I only like the idea of roaming through Gotham with Batman and the other heroes.

Other than that, it feels like a more fancy version of "Champions Online: Free For All".
