Fight Alongside DC's Greatest Superheroes for Free

With yesterday's addition to the PlayStation Network and today's flipping of the switch on the PC version, DC Universe Online is now free-to-play. Sony Online Entertainment celebrates with the most exciting trailer you'll see all...oh, nevermind.


Both versions of DC Universe Online now feature three levels of access — free, premium, and legendary, the differences between which are readily explained on the game's web page. It's a tiered system that handicaps those that don't pony up at least a little cash, but not so much that the game isn't enjoyable.

While I'm a fan of the game myself, I never felt the $14.99 a month fee was worth it, considering it only takes a couple weeks to reach the game's level 30 cap (if that). Now that it's free I'd say donning tights and a cape sounds like a rather lovely idea. Why not give it a go?

The game client is 14 gigs. That's as much disk space as 4 complete seasons of DVD-quality Simpsons episodes.

So in other words, to hell with that noise. If I'm going to download that much crap, I'd rather have the Simpsons eps.

Seasons 1-11 only, of course.
