DCUOnline Goes Free-to-Play

Because it’s what all the cool kids are doing, Sony Online Entertainment says that DC Universe Online (FG Review: 5 out of 5 stars) is adding a freebie game mode come late October. There will be three tiers of service, in fact, from free up to $15/month, and here’s what you’ll get with each.

All three game modes will give players access to the open worlds of Metropolis and Gotham City, all raids (aka dungeons) and alerts, with standard gameplay, missions, and character leveling, along with periodic updates and patches. But from there, things diverge.

Free players will get the option to create 2 characters, 28 inventory slots, 12 bank slots, and the ability to join a league. Pretty much everything else of value, like DLC expansion packs, must be purchased in-game. This tier is aimed primarily at noobs.

Premium players — defined as anyone who spends at least $5 in-game — will be rewarded with this tier. It bumps you up to 6 character slots, 42 inventory slots, 24 bank slots, and 5 auction slots.

Legendary players — those willing to pay $14.99 a month for top-tier access — get every DLC pack at no extra cost, 16 character slots, 63 inventory slots, 48 bank slots, 12 auction slots, unlimited in-game currency and chat, the ability to create leagues, and more.
