Sony Online Entertainment has announced that DC Universe Online has launched as a free-to-play product. Users on both PC and PS3 can download the game and access it in three levels: Free, Premium and Legendary.

“We are confident that going free-to-play will expand the action combat experience of DC Universe Online by making the game more accessible to every type of player so they can choose to play the game their way,” said John Smedley, President of Sony Online Entertainment. “With a portfolio that includes three successful free-to-play games — EverQuest II: Extended, Free Realms and Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures — we have extensive knowledge and experience to apply to DCUO and are thrilled to be taking the game free-to-play today.”
