Free 2 Play DC Universe

A Beta was released on December 14, 2010 and was closed on January 5th, 2011. There were a number of technical issues that came to light when the beta was closed which were only partially resolved by the game's release.
The game has had four major updates that it has released in addition to hot fixes since it officially launched.
In August of 2011, there was a global server merge implemented by the developers to consolidate all PC servers and PS3 servers into 4 individual servers, one for each platform per region.

On September 6th, 2011 the first downloadable content pack was released, called Fight For The Light. This pack included a new, seventh power, Light, and the ability to join the Green Lantern Corps or Sinestro Corps as reservists. It also included three new Group Combat Alerts and a Duo. The pack was free to all current subscribers.
It has been confirmed that DC Universe Online will become a free to play MMO starting October of 2011. There will be Premium as well as Legendary memberships available as well.
