The eagerly-awaited MMO DC Universe Online is, according to Sony, a ‘super-powered game you can play with your friends for months on end’.
Today, Sony Online Entertainment has announced that its super-hero MMO will go live in the UK on January 14 on both PC and PS3.
In the game, players can create their own villains and heroes and make their name under Batman, the Joker or even Superman.
The PC version of the game will cost $49.99 and the PS3 version will cost $59.99. Both come with a free 30-day subscription to the MMO, but after that, the game will cost $15 (€13) a month – or $199 (€180) for a lifetime subscription.
Game Director Chris Cao said of the game: “If I had to offer one piece of advice to a new player, it’s this: get ready for something new. We aren’t a traditional MMO. We aren’t a single-player action game. We’re a super-powered game you can play with your friends for months on end. That’s not hype. That’s DCUO. “
