DC Universe Online Gets Release Date, Subscription Details, CGI Trailer

[Update: 08:54] In reality, PS Plus subscribers will pay a subscription. Our apologies.

[Original] Sony Online Entertainment's superhero MMORPG DC Universe Online will launch on November 2, a Comic-Con 2010 panel attended by Newsarama revealed.

A free month of playtime is included, after which the subscription fee is $14.99 per month on PC or PlayStation 3--a fee which is waived for PlayStation Plus subscribers.

A variety of pre-order bonuses are on offer, as is a Collector's Edition with a Batman statue. You can sign up now for a beta test that will run until launch on November 2.

The news is all celebrated by a new cinematic trailer from CGI masters Blur, revealing that you'll actually be taking part in a tiresome and convoluted grand story as you run around wearing your underwear on top of your trousers and zapping people.
