DC Universe Online pre order bonus revealed

 

The European Playstation Blog has revealed the pre-order bonuses for the massively multiplayer online game, DC Universe Online.

DC Universe Online is a MMO based in the world of the DC comics, with confirmed characters from the rich history of DC, including The Joker, Superman, Batman and a list of over 80 other heroes and villains. As of today, the pre-order packs can be chosen, to whether you want the "Heroes Pack" or the "Villains Pack". The Heroes Pack includes the "slicing" Bladed Batarang, the "stun inducing" Bat-Grenade and the Amazonian Gauntlets. The Villains Pack includes the Jokers Trick Pistol (a inaccurate but powerful gun), The Jokers Confetti Bomb and the Lexcorp Kryptonite Blaster. Both version will include the first edition of the Legends comic book series.

DC Universe Online is one of the first MMOs to reach the Ps3 and is going to allow thousands of players to experience the game at once. All though not a new concept to PC gamers, it still gives a unique experience by allowing every player, regardless of platform, to engage in some of the best stories ever written in the comic book world.

The pre-order bonuses are for both the PS3 and PC versions of the game, and the pack includes a copy of DC Comics Legends Issue #0 DCUO comic and the ability to play as Batman in a 2-on-2 battle arena. DC Universe Online is set to release sometime this year and will have 14.95 USD monthly subscription.

15 a month, nty. This is one of the main reasons I switched to console games. You pay $60 for a game and another 30-40 per year on XBOX Live to play online. With PC games, you pay $60 for the game and another $180 a year to play online.

Depends on the game. Try StarCraft II, coming out in about 5 days. Free online play. It's normal for MMOs to expect some kind of income as the game client handles the graphics at most and the main load falls on the server to process and send information to the numerous clients connected to it. Now, while some MMOs do have free play, a nice lot of them also have the ability to buy items off a marketplace with real money, thus giving people who are willing to spend more an edge on the battlefield.

There are, of course, the games like Guild Wars where only the game cost money and had no subscription or marketplace, but look at the play value on that one. Not to mention that they kept tossing out expansions like there was no tomorrow.

hrmm interesting, hadnt heard about this game or maybe just hadnt payed attention, could be fun if it turns out half alright. I dont preorder though so dont much care whats on offer in that regard

I've always hated pre-order exclusive stuff but I suppose it's inevitable. I think giving out powerful stuff to people who payed more then needed to get the game new just for preorder stuff is unfair as the dedicated people who would bother with that are going to get powerful anyway.
