DC Universe Online gains one million players

DC Universe Online, the massively multiplayer online superhero role-playing game by Sony Online Entertainment, has somehow managed to accumulate one million players since moving to its free-to-play model.

SOE Austin executive director Lorin Jameson told Destructoid that “1 million new players have joined DCUO with a 50/50 split between PC and PS3,” and that “DC Universe Online’s transition to free-to-play has been welcomed by the community and gamers with heroic enthusiasm.”

DC Universe Online is available as a free download for PlayStation 3 and PC.
