Sony Online Entertainment has confirmed that DC Universe Online will be adopting a free-to-play format from November 1st. As detailed in a previous update (which continued to slip throughout September and October), free players will be able access Gotham City and Metropolis along with every raid and alert without spending even a single penny. However, if you decide to drop $5 of Microtransactions (of any kind), you'll be upgraded to a Premium Player - and enjoy increased character slots, inventory and cash limits.
Legendary Tier monthly subscriptions will still exist, which provides all DLC for free, over fifteen character slots, 80 inventory slots and the ability to form leagues of any size. It will be interesting to see how DCUO evolves over the coming weeks, and how many will opt for the full-fat subs option. [via GamesRadar]
