Geeky Girl Tuesday: It's Free! (Sort-of)

You may or may not remember my ravings about DC Universe during the ABC Challenge.  I've been quiet about it for a while, because I stopped playing.

There were some issues that I had with the game: 1) low server population, 2) the monthly fee.

You see, when there aren't many people playing a cooperative game, it makes it very hard to achieve some of the higher level gameplay.

As for the monthly fee...well, let's just say student loans took precedence.

But now, DC Universe has made a couple of great decisions.  They've merged a lot of the servers, so there's a higher population, and

They're free to play!

Sort of.

You still have to buy the game (if you haven't already), but starting today, you can play without a monthly subscription.

There are now three levels of game play:

Free--A entry level view of the game, with limited character slots.
Premium--If you spend $5 on DLC (downloadable content) or inventory slots, you get to create more characters and have more benefits.
Legendary--If you pay the $14.99 a month fee, you get the top tier of gameplay, with all the bells and whistles that came with the original game.

It's a great game for casual players (no hour long raiding nights like with another MMO we all know), and now that it's free to play, I hope that it gets the attention it deserves.
