DC Universe Online revealed that Open Episodes have been extended. Originally, access to these episodes were set to end today, but has been extended until May 11. That’s almost a month of free access.

According to developer Dimensional Ink Games, this was done in order to make sure that players, along with their friends, can continue to play and stay connected within the comfort and safety of their own homes.

In DCUO, Episodes offer players new storylines along with new achievements and even new armor that can help progress their character. Episodes are available for those who have an active subscription to the game, which is around $14.99 per month. Those who have no subscription, but want to try out an episode, can do so for typically $9.99 each.

For this latest offer, players without any subscription can play through Episode 1: Fight for the Light and all the way to Episode 35: Metal Part I. So far there are 36 episodes, so that looks to be a rather good deal.

New Episode

There’s also going to be new episode dropping tomorrow, April 16, which is all about the Birds of Prey. While this team has had different members in the comics, the one being introduced in the game is composed of Harley Quinn, Black Canary, Huntress, and Poison Ivy. In addition, the episode is going to focus on the early days of the team when the four have yet to become what they are destined to be.
