DC Universe Online Dated, Priced

December 21, 2010 Written by Allen Tyson

After years of development, and a recent delay, DC Universe Online has finally been given a solid release date. If that wasn’t enough, details on pricing, the end of the beta, and a new lifetime option have also surfaced.

DCUO is set to release in North America on January 11, 2011, and on the 14th in the UK. Players will have two payment options: monthly and lifetime. The monthly subscription fee will be $15/€13 with a lifetime option being offered for $199/€180. If you are currently in the beta, you might have wondered what would happen to your character after the beta.

Chris Cao, DC Universe Online Game Director, answered that question by stating:

To give everyone a fair, fresh start, we’re going to end the world one more time just before launch.

DCUO will retail for $59.99 on the PS3, and $49.99 on the PC, with both games including a 30 day subscription.
