We rated DCUO very highly in our review, although many of you said you wouldn’t take the plunge at the launch price structure. Well now the game can be found for as little as £14, and under £7 a month subscription if you take a 90 day plan – that’s got to be worth a shot, surely?

    Oddly the 3 and 6 month subscriptions have been missing from the EU store for a while. The header is there, but when you click it it says “no content was found”.
    Hopefully this price drop will appear in today’s store update so should be fixed then…

      On topic, though, I’ve already cancelled my recurring 30 day subscription ready forwhen my trial ends, and will snap up this cheaper version instead…

      Hmmm. Suggestion from other users on the EU Blog is that the subs are missing if you are already subscribed, to you can’t accidentally sign up for another subscription at the same time. Guess I’ll find out for definite when my 30 day is up.

        Same here, there are plenty of Marvel-inspired characters in DCUO.

        Cheers for that!

        Spiderman has tipped me over the edge – will pick it up next time I see it.

    How would it work if you bought the game now, and the 3 month plan? Would your free month carry over for afterwards?

      If you purchased the game now, you would have 30 days of free play. However, if you went into the store and purchased the 90 days sub, that means you will have 120 days of play. It all adds up.

        Thats good to know, one last question! If you buy it second hand, do you get the 1 month free?

        I lied, 2 more questions! Where can you get it for near £14? Amazon etc all still sell for 25-30.

        I found it for £12.85 at The Hut but its sold out, which is a shame as I was interested as well at that price. Next cheapest though is ShopTo at £29.86.

    I’m marginally more tempted to have a go now, but I stil don’t think I’d be able to invest enough time to get my money’s worth.

    I wonder how much the subscriptions have made.

    Elliot Linger (European Product Manager) has just confirmed on the EU Blog that you *cannot* sign up for the Legendary Pricing offer whils your current subscription is still in progress (that is why the store items are missing for me). You need to manually cancel it, then come back to the store on the day it runs out to buy the 90 day sub.

    Quote:-
    “Apologies, Shoji-Jo is correct – if you have a subscription in progress you cannot purchase the other subscription plans on the Store. This is to help prevent people accidently buying multiple subscriptions.

    So if you bought DCUO today, and didn’t redeem the 30 day code, you could lock into the 90 day offer (then redeem your 30 days after).

    Hope that helps!”
