Sony Online Entertainment and Warner Bros. Interactive have announced details for the DC Universe Online (DCUO) Collector's Edition, pre-order programs and beta registration. The Collector's Edition version of DCUO will be available for PC only and includes a number of extras.
Available for pre-order and at launch, a Collectors Edition of DC Universe Online will be available for PC only, and includes a statue of the Batman, concepted by reknowned comic book artist/executive creative director for the game, Jim Lee. The statue depicts the Dark Knight leaping from a building, ready to rain justice down on evildoers. The Collectors Edition also includes a limited edition Art of DCUO book, which includes 56 pages of the art, information on the making of the game and insight on some of the iconic characters players will encounter, plus a limited edition DC Universe Online: Legends Issue #0 comic, written by Tony Bedard (Green Lantern Corps) and illustrated by Oliver Nome, Michael Lopez and Livio Ramondelli with a variant cover by Jim Lee.
In addition, several retailers will be offering pre-order perks and all will include the ability to play as Batman in a two-on-two PvP combat arena. Some retailers will also offer unique in-game items or the limited edition comic. Digital Download pre-orders will also have their own set of items as those who order from Steam will receive Banes Venom Injector and Direct2Drive pre-orders will get Mr. Freezes Zero Grenade.
The last bit of good news is that beta registration is now officially open. Aspiring beta testers can now apply on the DCUO website for a chance to join the fight as a hero or villain.
