DC Universe Online will soon be free to download from the PlayStation Store, and free-to-play with no monthly fees required. So what’s the catch? There is none. The entire game will be open for you to play for free.
Why? Sony has been thinking about how to offer access to the game in a way that allows gamers to play their way. As a result, they have created three levels of access to 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.
Current players who are currently on a month-to-month or multi-month game pass will automatically be granted Legendary Access for the remaining time on their game pass once we officially transition to free-to-play. They can continue to play and stay at the Legendary Access level, or opt to migrate to another level.
