DC Universe Online Beta-Ending Event Tomorrow

What a ride it's been being able to test the PS3 DCUO beta for the past few weeks. So happy I picked up PS+ from the Playstation Store so I could be apart of this wonderful community of DC and MMO fans. Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) are wrapping up the beta testing tomorrow with a special event just before the beta servers are shut down.

It'll be heroes versus villains in a final showdown where you can fight alongside your favorite characters, as well as some special guests. Check out the official information below.


The end of the beta is near, and the next step to legendary is coming…1-11-11!

Tomorrow, Wednesday January 5, 2011 will be the last day of the DC Universe™ Beta in the U.S. and Thursday will be the last day to fight to save or rule the universe in Europe (in beta that is!).

To celebrate – we plan to stage The Battle of the Legends in-game in the spirit of the DCUO cinematic, “Who do you trust?”  Beta players can align and fight alongside or against some of DC Comics most notorious superheroes and villains including; Batman, Superman, Lex Luthor and The Joker.  Together will we take on DC’s greatest icons as we embark on our own path to legendary!  Show up to the battle when it erupts on your server!  Check the schedule below and don’t miss your chance to become part of the “Battle of the Legends!”

If for some hideous reason you cannot attend have no fear – we will update you as to the status of each battle on our Facebook site at Facebook.com/DCUniverseOnline and on Twitter @DCUO.  We plan to have streaming video, screens and updates and hope that our beta players will contribute as well.  One thing is for sure, this event will be legendary!
And, to add just a little more fun factor we have some special “legendary” guests joining us in a few of the events!  Check the schedule below to find out who and when.

One important thing to be aware of, when it’s over…so is the DCUO Beta! (Each server will shut down at the end of the event.)
