THE BUZZ: DC Universe Online’s move to a free to play model has attracted over one million new players to the game. Lorin Jameson, Executive Director of Development at SOE, said that new players were split 50/50 between the PC and PlayStation 3 versions of the game.

“DC Universe Online’s transition to free-to-play has been welcomed by the community and gamers with heroic enthusiasm,” he said. “Our business model philosophy of Free to Play Your Way makes DCUO accessible to every type of player so they can choose to play the game in a way that suits them best. We have a lot of exciting things coming up for players to enjoy in the game and are thrilled at the initial enthusiasm for the game’s free-to-play transition.”

EGM’s TAKE: DC Universe had a major problem with server population, as in no one was playing. Since the jump to free to play they have become overwhelmed with new subscribers which can only be a good thing for the game. Maybe now players won’t feel like the weird kid who wears a cape and plays alone.
