D.C. Universe Online's Free-To-Play Start Date Set For Nov 1

During a live-stream video chat with the game's developers, D.C. Universe Online's free-to-play debut was set for November 1, which is Tuesday of next week. Originally expected sometime in October, the new freemium model gives everyone two character slots and all game content as a base offering, with expansion packs and extra characters as paid extras.

Those who have spent $US5 or more on the game (i.e. those who bought it at retail or paid for a subscription but choose to go free, or in-game store customers) get a premium membership, affording more character slots and a larger inventory.

Those who continue paying the game's $US14.99 monthly sub (or have purchased a lifetime subscription are granted Legendary status, which gives them an big arse inventory, more than 15 character slots and free access to expansions and DLC as they roll out.

    Worse MMO ever, that's why it's going to free to play. Any MMO that goes free to play is dying.

      DDO and LOTRO both went free to play and quadrupled their profits.

      Neither is dead.

        Talking about actual games not sissy crap mate.

          Aidan, based on your attitude displayed above, I don't think you're going to fit in well here at all.
          Maybe you'd be better off on the X-Play forums?

            Or maybe he be trollin. On another note enjoy getting ganked at level 1 by level 20s. I hear that's what killed this game and the fact that Sony's security is pretty awesome as we all know!

      Call this bad? You've obviously never played Final Fantasy XIV.

    I think he got lost on his way to N4G. Cant wait to give it a try, been looking for a casual mmo as i dont have lots of time these days.

      There is such a thing as a 'casual' mmo?

    Games like this need to just release their character creators for a very small price of something. That's all that ends up being worthwhile.

    I think the shut down every night is what killed this game, and it always spanned the time between when I got home and went to bed...

    I'll be up for this, but for the love of god, please oh please dont be 10GB in size (or how ever much the beta was), took me 3 days straight to download, managed to play it but stuffed up on the first level, then downloaded one patch and the whole beta corrupted. Really dont to go through that again

    the download is well over 20gig now, and as for being ganked go to the pve phase
