As of today DC Universe Online is available worldwide, letting us create new heroes and beat down the baddies with friends. Some fans have been put off of signing up simply because of the monthly charge to play the game, but Sony Online Entertainment hopes to change the naysayer’s minds with monthly, free content updates.
SOE boss John Smedley revealed to Eurogamer that players can expect “large new raids, new end-bosses to fight, new quests, new graphics, new features – we’re looking at new voice features. There are many, many things you’ll be getting, and a constant stream of it. That’s why we’ll keep the dev team so large, so we can continue to crank out content.”
Sounds good, but is there a price? “Absolutely not. We will have a micro-transaction marketplace demo on here, but for actual content no. In the future we may have expansion packs, but if you’re talking about the regular monthly patches then no, we won’t be charging for those.”
Plenty more in store for this MMO, then.
