"DC Universe Online"

Sony Online Entertainment reports that online action game "DC Universe Online" (DCUO), has reached 'gold master status' and will be available @ retail outlets worldwide on the PlayStation3 computer entertainment system and PC, for January 11, 2011.

DCUO, licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment on behalf of DC Entertainment, will be the first online game based in the 'DC Universe', the first MMO on PlayStation 3, and the first time 'DC Universe Online' will be accessible to millions of DC Universe fans.

"Creating DC Universe Online has been a massive undertaking, and we're excited to be that much closer to launch," said Christopher Cao, Game Director of DCUO for Sony Online Entertainment.

"We're grateful to our beta players for providing us invaluable feedback in these final stages that has enabled us to put the finishing touches on a fun and exciting experience when the game launches in January."

Sony Online Entertainment expects to update the game regularly with new episodes featuring iconic DC Comics characters, new instances and major in-game events.

As a traditional action-based MMO that combines 'twitch-based' combat with an interactive physics system to deliver a unique gameplay experience, DC Universe Online brings the DC Universe to life, allowing players to create their own superheroes - or villains - and join forces with their favorite DC Comics characters including 'Superman', 'Batman' and 'The Joker' to aid in saving – or destroying – the universe.
