DC Universe Online Getting Free Updates

January 17, 2011 Written by Allen Tyson

John Smedley, President of Sony Online Entertainment, has outlined the roadmap for Sony’s support of DC Universe Online. Subscribers can expect quite a bit over the next few months — and they can expect it for no more than the standard subscription fee.

When talking with Eurogamer, Smedley made it clear that Sony has a commitment to delivering a high quality, continuous stream of updates for its new AAA MMO. Smedly further said that players would “…get large new raids, new end-bosses to fight, new quests, new graphics, new features – we’re looking at new voice features”, he added that:

That’s why we’ll keep the dev team so large, so we can continue to crank out content

The inevitable question was asked if players would be charged for additional features and Smedley said “no”. He stated that in the future they may have expansion packs, but for regular monthly patches he said “we won’t be charging for those.”
