DC Universe Online Going Free to Play

In not-so-unexpected news, Sony Online Entertainment has announced that its super-hero MMO, DC Universe Online, will be going free-too-play in October.

“When we launched DC Universe Online, we introduced a very different brand of massive online game driven by fast action combat to PC and PS3™ gamers and with that, we discovered a new type of online gamer,” said John Smedley, President, Sony Online Entertainment. “We’ve listened to our community, and we’ve determined that the free-to-play model is the best fit for DC Universe Online.”

User accounts will be available in three levels, allowing differing tiers of convenience and flexibility. The levels are:

  • 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 USD (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 USD 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.

Starbreeze Working on New IP


In another bit of good news for developer Starbreeze Studios (recently it was announced they are working on the new Syndicate game), it looks like they are teaming up with film director Josef Farres and The Lab AB to work on a brand-new IP.

“I love games, and I have been working on a games concept for quite some time. The more I worked with the concept, the more convinced I felt that this is a solid game idea” says Josef Fares. “Together with Story Lab we created a prototype that we presented to Starbreeze, and they instantly liked the concept.”

Not much is known on the video game, but we will keep you posted as more is released.
