DC Universe Online will be soon be the low, low price of mother fucking free! No date as to when it will be free, other than Sony said soon. There is however, more incentive for players to pay, but is not required. There will be three tiers that player can select from. Free access, premium access and legendary access.
- Free access- FREEEEEE!!! Sorry, no other way to explain it.
- Premium access- If you spend at least $5 in the in-game store, you will get benefits like added inventory slots, extra character slots, bank slots and free vault tickets. When I say $5, it means only $5, not monthly, not yearly, only once. Spend $5 and you get Premium access for the life of your account.
- Legendary access- If you pay $14.99 a month you get access to all the DLC for free, even more slots for inventory, characters and even more free vault tickets. Unlimited chat also comes with this access.
