The dump truck carrying games out of 2010 is now laden with one more, as Sony Online Entertainment announced that DC Universe Online is now releasing in early 2011. While you may not be able to officially strap on the tights until 2011, Sony brings word of the game’s beta.
Players with early access cards from Comic-Con or those that have registered on the DC Universe Online website will get beta access as early as next week. Everyone else who pre-orders the game before November 15, 2010 are promised beta access by November 30.
Those pre-ordering after November 15 will still be able to access the beta, but only one week before retail launch. Beta will conclude with a “Battle of the Legends” event, and will grant all participants a special emblem to use in the retail game. Sony also announced that the PlayStation 3 will get the same Collector’s Edition the PC will with all the same goodies: a Jim Lee statue, poster, art book, and DC Legends comic book.
So you have your spoonful of sugar, did it help?
