Smart move, SOE. Very classy. The game looks awesome. I never have gotten around to playing it (mostly due to the subscription).

A change of heart ? Or its the one thing they can do to stop the fan boys from whining like they have been

Whenever i'm on DCUO there aren't that many people on. All of the servers never go past 'Low' for population so they probably made it free so they don't alienate those people as well.

Well it's obvious that you haven't played the game in a while because the servers have been merged into a Megaserver for PS3-US, PS3-EU, PC-US, PC-EU. The servers are almost always high/full now. Also, through (not sure exact end date), there is a Legends Subscription Pack that gives you 3 months for $30. If you remain current, you keep this plan. SOE is really trying to keep us satisfied with great content and game balancing. With the last couple of updates they have provided, my confidence in the game has been restored. I can assure that any comic book/super hero lover will enjoy this game. ESPECIALLY the combat aspect of it. Tell em Froztbyte the Tank from R3PO sent you!

Yeah i've not been on the game in quite a while. Never found any reason to re-new my subscription, although i might when fight for the light is available.
I was in a league called New Order on the EU Justice for All Server. Don't know if i still am in it though.
You've half persuaded me to have a go at it again, maybe i will renew for a month and check out all the changes.

If you pay for the subscription, shouldnt all DLC be free?

Rip-Ridah2599d ago (Edited 2599d ago )

All dlc has been free so far. This particular content is an Expansion more so than dlc. There's been so many updates with dlc I have lost count of the many changes to the game. They have all been mostly for the better.

They said .. All DLC would be free in the first place back at the start and then only to have the Green lantern DLC cost $10 .. so they went back on there word about the "All DLC free cuz we payed for the subscription...

So now after they made a boo boo and "tried" to charge for it its kinda stupid they now saying again.. "All DLC will be free".. from now on.. but not a biggy to me i stopped playing DCUO it became to borked and became boring and just no fun anymore.

To much waiting for updates and not enough fun stuff to do... Dont get me wrong game was fun just didn't last to long.
