DC Universe beta ends with a bang

Batman vs. The Joker! Superman vs. Luthor!

PC and PlayStation 3 MMO DC Universe will end its beta today for US gamers and tomorrow for European gamers, but not without one last bang.

Sony Online Entertainment plans to stage The Battle of the Legends event in-game. Beta players can align and fight alongside or against some of DC Comics' superheroes and villains as they go at it, including Batman, Superman, Lex Luthor and The Joker.

All you have to do is show up to the battle when it erupts on your server. SOE detailed the server names, dates, times and locations over on its official forum.

DC Universe Online launches in the UK next Friday. It'll cost UK PC and PlayStation 3 gamers £9.99 a month to play. A three-month subscription costs £27.99. A six-month sub sets you back £49.99.

There will be no annual or lifetime subscription plan for the PS3 version "at launch". On PC, a 12 month subscription costs £89.99, and a lifetime subscription £129.99.

Both the PC and PS3 versions of the game will be sold for £39.99 in shops, and both come with a free 30-day subscription.

Thanks to reader Liam Brown for the heads-up.
