Sony Entertainment Online recently announced that their super hero MMO DC Universe is now free to play. Some people are wondering if this is just a trial run to entice you to pay the monthly subscriptions but in fact you do get full access to the game. So what are the draw backs? Mostly little annoying things but you can get the full gaming experience and enjoy it with no real restrictions to your character. For starters you can only have up to 2 free characters. Your inventory is limited to 28 slots, as well as bank slots if you end up using one. You can only have up to 1500 gold/credits/Monopoly money so if you were planing on being evil and robbing banks, the only thing standing between you and the vault is a bad economy. On top of all the minor set backs you can’t enjoy extracurriculars like guilds (Leagues) or talking to other players for very long because they limit texting and what you can share amongst players. For $15 a month it’s not much to cry over if you really like the game and have decided to dedicate your time to your character.
Anything free is worth trying out, so jump on the bandwagon and download today true believers! (Wait, that’s Marvel.)
