As we learned last month, DC Universe Online is adopting the free-to-play model that's becoming more and more popular in the MMO genre. During a live webcast earlier today, it was announced that the transition is coming this Tuesday, November 1st. If you want to hear all of the juicy details for yourself, you can view the archived webcast here.
There will be three levels of subscription, each with varying access to the game's content. The Legendary status is for those who still pay the standard fifteen dollars a month to play DCUO and grants you all of the DLC for no extra cost. The next step down, Premium membership, is granted after you spend at least five dollars on the in-game store and never expires once attained. Then, of course, the completely free-to-play player status has the most restrictions on just about every aspect of the game, including chat functions.
