You can now download and play DC Universe Online completely free from the PlayStation Store. There is no catch fellas, as SOE explained the 3 levels of access available for the game:
- Free Access – Just like it sounds. Download and play the game for free. You also get all ongoing game updates (except DLC packs).
- Premium Access – This next level of access opens up to you if you spend at least $5 in the in-game store. Premium Access grants you additional benefits that improve your experience in the game, such as more inventory slots, more character slots, bank slots and more free Vault tickets. So all you have to do is pick up some cool items in the store or buy a DLC pack and you unlock Premium Access. The best part? Once you unlock Premium Access you keep it for the life of your account.
- Legendary Access – With Legendary Access you can unlock the maximum level of features and benefits. To unlock Legendary Access you can pay for a $14.99 per month game pass, or save big with a discounted multi-month pass. Lifetime members are automatically granted Legendary access. Legendary Access also includes all DLC packs at no extra charge.
Although mentioned to be coming in late October, an official announcement was just made saying that DCUO will be free to play starting Nov. 1. I'm looking to give this a try, however, UC3 is going to come first.
Sony Online Entertainment LLC (SOE) announce today, that beginning late October, players will be able to download and access DCUO for free on the PS3 and PC. SOE is introducing three new access levels to the game: Free, Premium and Legendary. All three levels will provide access to open world gameplay and missions, general game updates and fixes to the game, with each level offering different game options and benefits.
This is great news for players like myself, who couldn’t see spending $14.99 a month for a game I didn’t have time to fully utilize.
All three levels provide access to the current game, but allow differing tiers of convenience and flexibility. The levels are:

I jumped at the opportunity when the question arose as to who would like to review DC Universe Online(DCUO). I have been playing MMO games since way back when World of Warcraft didn’t even exist. I’ve played Anarchy Online, Dark Age of Camelot, Neocron 1 & 2, Eve Online, the short lived APB and several others as well. The first MMO on the PlayStation platform that came out at exactly the same time that the PC version came out was one I had to play.
I came home after a stressfull monday only to find a mysterious package in the mail. DC Universe Online had arrived. Within the package I found a nice leather bound map featuring villains on one side and heroes on the other. Included are two discs, a game disc and a disc with promotional stuff. I popped in the disc and it asked me to redeem the voucher code.
After booting the disc I’m welcomed to download v1.03 which entails a staggering 10GB. As if that itself isn’t enough, another 3GB download starts after the installation of the initial 10 GB. Thank god for 30 Mbits/s Cable or I would have been up all night waiting for this download to finish
Here’s a deal you simply cant miss. DC Universe has had a great start, and the subscription fees are, surprisingly, being paid. The game has been so successful, that the senior producer of SOE had this to say on the Official Blog:
In appreciation of you pioneers, we are going to be offering the chance to lock in an extraordinary promotional rate of only $29.99 for the 3-month DC Universe Online Legend Plan. That’s over 25% OFF the regular 3-month subscription plan price of $41.99! You’ll even be able to keep that rate for as long as you are actively subscribed and watch the savings pile up! You really won’t want to miss out on this great opportunity! The new rate will be available on February 8th so look out for it!
The kicker there is, as long as you stay up to date on your payments, this offer will last. That’s an insane offer for anybody who plays DCU!
