DC Universe Online adds 1 million new players in one week

Since the transition from a subscription model to a free-to-play model last week, Sony Online Entertainment have announced that DC Universe Online has added 1 million new players.

Lorin Jameson, Executive Director of Development, SOE Austin said “DC Universe Online’s transition to free-to-play has been welcomed by the community and gamers with heroic enthusiasm. In just one week alone, 1 million new players have joined DCUO with a 50/50 split between PC and PS3.”

Jameson added, “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.”

Have any of you signed up in the last week? If so, was it only because it went free-to-play or were you just late to the party anyway?
