DC Universe Online Becomes Live on January 2011

Sony Online Entertainment is about to release a brand-new MMORPG based on the characters of DC Comics, which includes the likes of Superman, Joker, and Wonder Woman. DC Universe Online is set at present time, where players assume a hero or villain character and take on quests from their mentors (Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman for the heroes; Joker, Lex Luthor, and Circe for the villains) as well as other non-playable characters.

There are, however, several downers in playing this game. For one, players cannot choose to play as Superman or The Joker because they serve as your mentors. Oh, and did we mention that the game is not free in the first place?

The MMO will cost US$15 per month to play or go for a lifetime subscription for $199. The hard copy, meanwhile, will be $49 for the PC version and $59 for the PS3. Those who have played the beta would have to start over once the game becomes officially live on January 11, 2011.
