DC Universe Online Goes Free to Play Next Week

Here's a little something to brighten your day heading into the weekend. DC Universe Online announced a new free-to-play option will be available starting November 1, 2011 (that's next Tuesday). This was originally expected to happen sometime in October, but we're willing to forgive a slight slip into the first of November if it means we can don our virtual tights and get our super hero fix for free.

The freebie version gives you access to two character slots, with the option to purchase more. It also gives you 28 inventory slots, a dozen bank slots, 1500 maximum in-game currency, six chat messages per day for 30 seconds, and text-only email. You'll also be able to join player leagues, but can't form any.


Several of these come with the option to purchase additional goodies, or you can pony up for a Premium (spend $5 or more) or Legendary ($15/month), for additional goods and benefits right off the bat. Also, if you already spent $5 on an existing DCUO account and have an inactive subscription, you'll be bumped to the Premium tier once it transitions to free-to-play.

Well, it certainly looks interesting now that it's free to play. I guess I was right when F2P was the wave of the future of MMORPG games. Certainly hope alot of people enjoy this game now that it's free.

I loved this game at first, but it became boring fast. The game did a great jump on the storylines,customization of characters, graphics, and the fighting system was fun at first. However lvling was to easy (you shouldnt be able to reach max lvl in one day), only able to use 5 spells at a time, and the pve instance and raid wernt that good.

This is great news! We've wanted to play but just couldn't justify paying a fee for it. We'll check it out for sure!

They're just trying to hook everyone with the free play. Once you like it, you'll be willing to pay to play more. Pay for upgrades, pay for more time, pay for MORE! Smile

Smart move on their part.

It will no doubt work on many but not me. I don't think I've ever been into a game enough to pay monthly for it. I'd rather spend my money on food an bills LOL

Was excited about this game on release, by the time I was ready to buy it I had heard enough to change my mind. Looks like I might give it a try after all. :D

The Borg will assimilate you with F2P MMORPGs. lol.

I am sure they went F2P to get some more customers if the game is that boring. Plus look at how well TF2 is doing in it's F2P state.

Eh, League of Legends is free to play and you don't miss out on anything by not spending money, I'll just stick with that.
