DCU: Online Goes Free2Play

Become a legendary fighter alongside DC Comics icons for free on PS3.

DC Universe Online on PlayStation 3 lets you assume extraordinary powers and become a hero or a villain in a high energy action title that delivers a fast-paced adventure experience. Beginning in late October 2011, you will be able to download and access DC Universe Online for free from PlayStation Store.

What does free-to-play mean?
Free-to-play means you can enjoy the exciting world of DC Universe Online at no cost. You can buy additional items or features that best fit your style of play, or even get premium access to game content by purchasing a subscription.

It's up to you how you want to play the game. Free-to-play also means you do not have to purchase the game; you simply download it directly from PlayStation Store and start.

If i had payed for this when it came out and been paying a sub to play it i would be feeling rather pissed off at this news. But free i can deal with, should kill a couple of hours on a wet weekend at some point.


  1. It's always been a rental game and those original players get a big bunch of premium thingybob to smack down the chepapskates with.

    At least now there mght be someone to smack online, I guess that's why it was done. I guess they just want to extend its life....

  2. Not that I've ever played it tho
