DC Universe Online beta ends today, will go out with a bang

Posted by: Chuck at 1/5/2011 11:24 AM
The folks at SOE have decided to shut down the DC Universe Online Beta today.  They aren't going quietly into the night as they are having two big events to help shut down the beta properly.

Those in the PC version of the beta can login today at 9:00 EST and join Jim Lee as he uses Future Batman to take down the evil forces of IGN (I'm not making this up, it's in the release...and somehow so appropriate).

Those in the PS3 version of the beta will have to wait until 10:00 EST to do the same thing.  The full directions and details are available after the jump but it's always cool to see folks shut their MMO beta's down with this kind of cool event. 


DC Universe™ Online Battle of the Legends

In recognition of our beta community's great support and feedback and celebration of our impending 1/11/11 launch, SOE will be closing the DCUO beta on Wednesday, January 5 with a cataclysmic beta ending event, "Battle of the Legends."

Based on the events revealed this summer in our "Who Do You Trust?" cinematic trailer, Beta players can align and fight alongside or against some of DC Comics' most legendary heroes and villains, including Batman, Superman, Lex Luthor and The Joker. Join us and take this last shot at creating your legacy! Become part of this epic conflict when it erupts on your server.

If for some reason you're unable to attend, don't worry - we'll be updating you on the status of the battles on our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/DCUniverseOnline. And to sweeten the pot, some "legendary" guests of our own joining in on the fun, playing as the iconic characters:

* On Wednesday, January 5th, at 6PM PT fight alongside comics legend Jim Lee aka "Future Batman" as he takes on IGN's Nick "Guyman McMonocle" Kolan and his league of villains in Gotham Botanical Gardens! (PC players only)

* At 7PM on Wednesday, January 5th, Jim Lee will defend humanity as "Future Batman" in the Botanical Gardens against the evil duo of IGN Editors Greg "Blue Business" Miler and Hilary "The Temp" Goldstein! PS3 beta gamers can jump in and assist the Dark Knight, or help IGN rain evil down on the universe!
