SOE has announced that DC Universe Online will go free to play on November 1st, meaning you’ll soon be able to load the game up on your PS3 and play for free.
What this all means is that if you play for free then you will have access to Gotham City and Metropolis, as well as access to raids and alerts.
Spending on micro-transactions in game will grant you Premium player status, which in turn rewards you with additional character slots, inventory slots and more. You will also have the ability to buy extras such as mission packs, etc.
You can also become a Legendary player for $15 a month, this will allow you access to all DLC packs at no cost, more than 15 character slots, more than 80 inventory slots, the ability to form unrestricted-sized leagues, and many other benefits.
