Gamers that were lucky enough to gain access to the DC Universe Online beta on either the PC or PS3 will want to pay extra close attention to the details that DC Comics and Sony Online Entertainment have just released.

The beta will be closing Wednesday, January 5, 2011, and to celebrate the success of the beta and also the release of the game next week, there will be a beta closing event. This cataclysmic event will be called “Battle of the Legends,” and some of the key staff of DCUO will be taking part in this historic night of gaming.

One of the biggest highlights of this beta closing is that players will get the opportunity to play with one of biggest legends in the industry, Jim Lee, as well as some editors from IGN.
