The DC Universe Online Beta Ends With Epic Battles

The DC Universe Online beta goes out with a bang today, with tonight's cataclysmic "Battle of the Legends" paving the way for the MMO's January 11 launch. Will you side with Batman and Superman, or The Joker and Lex Luthor?

The end of beta testing is a big event for a massively multiplayer online role-playing game, the last hurrah before the servers are wiped clean and everyone starts fresh on launch day. Sony Online Entertainment plans on making this one memorable, giving players the chance to take part in the biggest battles the game has yet seen. Superman faces off against Lex Luthor. Batman and The Joker stage a major showdown. Comics legend Jim Lee takes on IGN.

Yeah, that last bit was a little puzzling to me as well. Apparently Jim Lee, AKA Future Batman, will be taking on some of IGN writers during the event, with regular beta testers able to join the battle to help one side or the other triumph.

Check out the complete schedule for US PlayStation 3 and PC servers:

US Beta Servers - Wednesday January 5

PC BETA 1 / Wednesday January 5 / 5PM PT / Botanical Gardens (Batman vs. Joker) or Centennial Park (Superman vs. Lex)

PS3 BETA 2 / Wednesday January 5 / 5PM PT / Botanical Gardens (Batman vs. Joker) or Centennial Park (Superman vs. Lex)

PC BETA 3 / Wednesday January 5 / 6PM PT / Botanical Gardens (Batman vs. Joker) or Centennial Park (Superman vs. Lex) *Come join the battle and fight alongside or against Jim Lee aka Future Batman in this event as he takes on Greg Miller from IGN and his league of wanna be villains!

PS3 BETA 3 / Wednesday January 5 / 6PM PT / Botanical Gardens (Batman vs. Joker) or Centennial Park (Superman vs. Lex)

PC BETA 4 / Wednesday January 5 / 7PM PT / Botanical Gardens (Batman vs. Joker) or Centennial Park (Superman vs. Lex)

PS3 BETA 1 / Wednesday January 5 / 7PM PT / Botanical Gardens (Batman vs. Joker) or Centennial Park (Superman vs. Lex) *Once again, fight against Jim Lee aka The Future Joker, as he attempts to spawn chaos across the Universe!

If you can't make it, don't fret: The DC Universe Online Facebook page will be tracking the battles' progress, keeping you abreast of what you're missing.

I'll try to make it on tonight, though I can't guarantee anything. With CES getting underway, I might not have the time. Fingers crossed!

    Yeah if u can actually play the game i got the beta on release and to this day it is un playable due to freezing and apparently being a corrupt install i downloaded it twice and installed it twice same problem. This is on the ps3 and as a playstation plus user was very dissapointed because this was the main reason i got the subscription

    Yup, I never made it off Brainiac's ship. Too many crashes. There was an update recently, and I had intended to get back in, but just haven't had the chance.

    And now it's all over. Wish I could be home for this, sounds like a lot of fun.

      same with me, though with the other patch, i almost got off, but it crashed and said it was corrupted and needed to redownload, and i looked at the screen and punched the wall, 17GB's, and 30 hours straight worth of downloading for nothing.

      at least i can clear space now

    Never even got beta, signed up 8 months ago. Feels bad man. I expect this to go f2p in a year anyway, it just feels like they expect to have you reach an endgame and replay on a different character path. Which doesn't work so much on mmos.
