DC Universe fees waived for a month

SOE details its "make good" plan.

All DC Universe Online users will get one month subscription free as a good will gesture following the Sony Online Entertainment security breach and subsequent server downtime.

According to a statement on the game's Facebook page, all those affected will also get a "Batman-inspired" in-game mask.

"We wanted to provide everyone with a quick update regarding the 'make good' plan you've been reading about," it explains.

"First, all impacted players will receive 30 days subscription credit plus one day for each day the service was unavailable. Also every impacted player will receive a Batman-Inspired mask appearance item.

"Please bear with us as the complexities of the subscription server dictate how and when this will be available along with pertinent details. We will be releasing more information this week. Thanks again for your patience!"

Sony Online Entertainment took its servers offline yesterday after discovering the same security intrusion that took PlayStation Network down last month had also laid bare the personal details of its users.
