Un million de nouveaux joueurs sur DCUO depuis le f2p

Ecrit par Apophis, le 12-11-2011

Par voie de communiqué de presse, SOE nous annonce que le passage en Free to play de DCUO a été accueilli avec un enthousiasme rien moins qu'"héroïque" : en seulement une semaine, un million de nouveaux joueurs ont rejoint DC Universe Online (à titre de comparaison, depuis son passage en f2p en juillet, AoC a attiré 600 000 nouveaux joueurs -voir notre news AoC ici-). Voilà qui éclaire donc d'un jour nouveau les problèmes entraînés par la sur-population (files d'attente, lags) sur le jeu.
Lorin Jameson, producteur Exécutif du jeu, précise que cette population se répartit à part égale entre PC et PS3, et constate que DCUO rejoint les rangs d'autres titres f2p SOE à succès, comme Free Realms ou Star Wars : Clone Wars Adventures. Il poursuit en disant que "notre philosophie en matière de modèle économique "free to play comme vous voulez" rend DCUO accessible à tout type de joueur, leur donnant le choix de jouer au jeu de la manière qui leur convient le mieux. Nous avons nombre de choses excitantes qui arrivent pour les joueurs et sommes ravis de l'enthousiasme initial pour la transition du jeu en free to play".
