As promised, DC Universe Online is going free-to-play today. Sony Online Entertainment is working on the servers to convert everyone to the new free-to-play model. A new website will also be launched once the transition is complete. If you are going to play DCUO on PC, you can download the client right now.
A link to the download has been posted on the DC Universe Online Facebook page. The free-to-play version of DCUO is not quite ready on PS3, but SOE says it hopes to have it up and running on the PlayStation Network “in a little while.”
While you wait, feel free to check out our pricing primer for new DCUO players. It contains the prices for purchasing things such as extra character slots, auction slots and more. We’ll be sure to update you as soon as DCUO has invaded the PlayStation Network.
Update: An easy way to find out the status of the DCUO servers is to go to the SOE game server status website. As of right now, all DCUO servers are down.
Update #2: If you own the DCUO disc on PS3, you should be able to start downloading game assets if you haven’t already.
Update 3: It’s now in the PlayStation Store. Go!
