DC Universe Online is hitting store shelves next week, in a mere 8 days, but eight is far too high of a number. Let's make it zero instead, shall we?
If you want to play the game early for free, and don't mind a spot of downloading, you're in luck, as we have beta keys galore for both PC and PS3 here.
So here's how we'll be doing this. Throughout the day, we'll be posting beta keys to our Twitter account (Click the link and give us a follow!), our Facebook Fan Page (Yup, that one too!), and here in our forums, at the link below (and maybe a couple other random spots in the forums, just to keep you guessing).
For PlayStation 3 codes, it's nice and easy- enter it in the PSN Store's "Redeem Codes" section, and the download will be ready for you. Wham, Bam, Thank ya Shazam.
For PC, take the following steps, as provided by Sony Online Entertainment:
ACCESSING THE GAME
In order to access the DC Universe Online Beta server, you will need to enter the Beta Key above onto your Station account by visiting www.dcuniverseonline.com and entering the key code in the box on the Home Page under the call-out “Redeem Your Code”. If you do not have a Station account you will need to create one by going to www.Station.com and clicking on the “Sign Up” button on the right end of the top navigation bar.
Once you have created a Station account and entered the key above, follow the steps below to obtain the appropriate files. You may download the appropriate installer from the following web address:
To get into the game:
Enter the web address into your web browser.
Enter your Station Name and Password and click "Log In".
Click the "Download" button to start the download of the Beta Software “Patcher”.
When prompted, click "Save". You may save the file to a location of your choosing. The file is called DCUO_Beta_setup.exe.
Once the download has completed, browse to the location the file was saved to.
Double click DCUO_Beta_setup.exe to begin installation.
Select "Install" to install the software or "patcher" to the default directory (RECOMMENDED).
Once installation is complete, the patcher will automatically launch. An icon will be placed on your desktop for future use.
Enter your Station Name and password at the prompt and click "Log In".
A file check will begin. Once it is complete, the DC Universe Online Beta will begin installing on your computer.
Once the download has completed, click "Play" to launch the game.
That's it! But hey, let's get this party started, shall we? How about some codes? These, and every code we post, will be first come, first served. Once someone has redeemed it, it's gone, and you'll just have to try again later, or wait the 8 days. Good luck, and we'll see you in there!
