With the recent merging of the servers on “DCU Online” to one mega server, it’s no surprise that this title will be moving to the free-to-play subscription model. As users were realizing after their first month that the game didn’t really hold a $14.99 a month value after 30 days, players began to abandon ship.
PC and PS3 players will not only be able to download the game, but they will have their choice of 3 different tiers beginning in late October.
The 3 tiers include Free, Premium and Legendary.
I personally regained interest after the Green Lantern DLC was released and ended up taking advantage of the 3 month package for $30. Having more content to get excited about is certainly something the game needed and it was fun being able to go back and explore the words of the DCU.
This move is bound to get more people on the server and possibly more paid subscribers once they realize the limitations of the free subscription.
With these new price points, will you be coming back or starting for the first time? Let us know.
