When DC Universe Online went free to play about two weeks ago, it saw a huge influx of new players. So far, over a million of them, according to DCU. The split is roughly 50-50 between PC and PS3 console players, the company reports.
DCU claims that this is due to their “Free to Play Your Way” model of access. It involves three tiers of play: Free, Premium, and Legendary. Each with larger levels of access than the last and each with a higher monthly premium. (More on this here)
Some players still complain that content hasn’t updated in quite a while, but DCU promises a new game pack early next year, so that may abate concerns.
