In the wake of the game’s transition to free-to-play, DC Universe Online continues to attract massive attention.

“We are over 1000% of our pre-F2P concurrent numbers,” Sony Online Entertainment CEO John Smedley revealed in a tweet.

The sudden influx of new players has caused headaches for the game, too.

“We’re very aware of the long queues and other issues. We’re on it,” Smedley continued.

“We’re working on adding more hardware and working on our servers so we don’t have them,” he explained.

DC Universe Online went free-to-play on November 1, and by November 3, had attracted 120,000 new players join and a 400% increase in concurrent users.

The game is available on both PC and PlayStation 3.
