Sony Online Entertainment recently announced a release date for DC Universe Online. The action MMO is now scheduled to launch for both the PlayStation 3 and PC worldwide on January 11, 2011. The announcement comes on the heels of the beta phase for the PlayStation 3 version, which opened its doors to PlayStation Plus members earlier this month.
The anticipated retail price for North American audiences will be $59.99 for the PlayStation 3 version and $49.99 for the PC version. The game will offer a 30-day free membership, but will require a monthly subscription fee of $14.99 to keep playing.
DC Universe Online has come a long way since Sony Online Entertainment first announced plans to work with Warner Bros. to produce an MMO based on the characters from the DC Comics universe in 2005. Since then, the original target launch date for late 2007 has been pushed back multiple times.
However, after spending some time in the closed beta for the PC version, it appears that the wait may have been worth it. You can check out our earlier hands-on impressions here. In the meantime, you can check out this extra amazing CG trailer and some gameplay footage below.
