Well folks, we'd love to tell you the official date that DC Universe Online
is switching to its freemium business model. The only problem is that Sony Online Entertainment
isn't making that information available until tomorrow.
Why this post, then?
So you can mark your Bat-calendars of course! SOE will make the date official at 7:30 p.m. EDT on October 27th via its Stickam
portal (so, yes, this is effectively an announcement about an announcement). As we reported last month
, SOE will be moving DCUO
to a tiered access plan and eliminating the barrier that is the monthly subscription fee -- although gamers who choose to continue paying it in the form of the Legendary plan will enjoy numerous perks including free DLC and lots of character slots.
