DC Universe Online Going Free to Play
Early this year, I wrote a review of DC Universe Online’s Beta release. I really enjoyed the game, despite all of the bugs. Had I been able to, I would have bought the game. But, to be honest, the game as it was is too expensive for most. There is the game itself at over sixty dollars (including sales tax) then fifteen dollars a month in subscription fees. The game was out of my reach.
With the game going free to play, it is certainly in my reach now. And I’m as excited about it now as I was playing the game. Indeed, I look forward to being able to play it again.
Even though I’m psyched about the game, I have to admit that I’ve experienced some annoyance at the lack of information coming out about the game. I understand and agree with SOE’s decision to focus on getting it ready rather than setting a firm release date. That said, I do wish they would be quicker in shooting down false information.
I’m annoyed, but I want them to get it right rather than it being bugged. So, I can wait for it. It’ll just be sweeter when it arrives.
