SOE has confirmed plans to end the DC Universe Online beta in both the US and Europe with a special event – The Battle of the Legends.

Said the firm on the game’s forums:

Tomorrow, Wednesday January 5, 2011 will be the last day of the DC Universe™ Beta in the U.S. and Thursday will be the last day to fight to save or rule the universe in Europe (in beta that is!).

To celebrate – we plan to stage The Battle of the Legends in-game in the spirit of the DCUO cinematic, “Who do you trust?” Beta players can align and fight alongside or against some of DC Comics most notorious superheroes and villains including; Batman, Superman, Lex Luthor and The Joker. Together will we take on DC’s greatest icons as we embark on our own path to legendary! Show up to the battle when it erupts on your server! Check the schedule below and don’t miss your chance to become part of the “Battle of the Legends!”

DC Universe Online launches in the UK next Friday for PC and PS3.

A monthly sub of £9.99 can be cheapened with a three-month subscription a £27.99. Go to six months and it’ll cost £49.99.

On PC, a 12 month subscription costs £89.99, with a lifetime subscription standing at £129.99: there’s no lifetime sub for the PS3 version announced as yet.
