After not making the 2010 release year fans had been hoping so much for, SOE has confirmed the release dates for both North America and the UK.
When interviewed by IGN, SOE told them that the game will release in North America January 11th and the 14th for the UK.
And of course along with the firm release date we reported earlier, SOE also announced the game’s $199 lifetime subscription price (just being over 13 months worth of sub fees), and of course the $14.99 for subsequent months outside of the free one month that will be available with the game.
“We’re going to be here for far more than a single year. We’ve got a lot of universe to build, and we’re not going to stop anytime soon,” game director Chris Cao said of the lifetime subscription pricing.
Cao also detailed an end-of-the-world event that will take place within DCUO before it launches in January. “Jim Lee and our friends at DC are going to join us in a live, end-of-beta event where players will fight alongside and against the iconics as Brainiac’s menace yet looms,” he explained, adding, “It will be an epic end and thank you for beta. And it will set the stage for the real struggle to come in live.”
Prepare to choose your side in the coming weeks, when DC: Universe is released in the first few weeks of next year.
