The rumors regarding DC Universe Online going free-to-play were in fact true. According to kotaku, as of October 1st, there will be no subscription fee necessary to play DC Universe Online for PC and PlayStation 3 gamers. Those who paid for lifetime subscriptions or continue to pay the $14.99 a month will receive legendary status, giving them more than 15 character slots, a much larger wallet, and free access to premium content including downloadable content as it inevitably comes. If you have subscribed in the past or spent at least $5 in game, you will be granted premium status giving a few more character slots, higher inventory availability, and larger wallet, as well. The free status level will receive current updates, allowed 2 character slots, and have the option to upgrade their access through micro-transactions. Many believe the "free-to-play" status marks the death of an MMO, but Sony has stated that this was just a business move and us, as gamers, along with Sony will see the benefits of free-to-play gaming.
