DC Universe OnlineWhile I’ve had the game for a while I haven’t had much of a chance or desire to play it.  It’s been announced that DC Universe Online will be going free-to-play this October.  The DC based MMO will be free to download and play without a monthly subscription fee.  There will however been three levels to the game, Free, Premium and Legendary.

From GamePolitics:

The Free access level will grant 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 micro-transactions.

The Premium access level will be available to any player who has spent at least $5 USD (including former paid subscribers and new players who have purchased $5 of in-game items). 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.

Finally, the Legendary access level promises maximum features and benefits including 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.
