DC Universe Online will cost $50 for PC and $60 for PS3 in North America. The game includes one 30-day game membership, with monthly subscriptions available thereafter for $15. SOE expects to update the game regularly with new episodes featuring DC Comics characters, new instances, and major in-game events. DC Universe Online allows players to create their own superheroes or villains and join forces with their favorite DC Comics characters to aid in saving or destroying the universe.
"Creating DC Universe Online has been a massive undertaking, and were excited to be that much closer to launch," Christopher Cao, Game Director of DCUO for Sony Online Entertainment, said in a statement. "We're grateful to our beta players for providing us invaluable feedback in these final stages that has enabled us to put the finishing touches on a fun and exciting experience when the game launches in January."
