It's been 10 years since Daybreak Games launched DC Universe Online, and to celebrate, the developer is once again offering all players a free character advance and a bunch of cosmetics.
All players that log in between January 11th and January 31st will receive a free character advance to CR209, a gear suit in the new Restored Shim'Tar Regalia style, a Paradox Gazer combat pet, two celebratory firework trinkets, and two 10th anniversary emblems. The most important thing here is the character advance, which can be used to unlock up to three achievements. The advance will automatically boost a character's level up to 30 with achievements unlocking for reaching level 10, depending on your build, hitting level 30 in a specific movement type, and a final achievement for reaching level 30 as a hero or villain with a mentor.
Members can also grab a special Member Appreciation Gift Box, which includes the Anti-Matter Neon Chroma Pack, Nth Metal totalling 220,000 Artifact XP, one Artifact Cache, one set of Artifact Catalysts, one Nth Metal Detector, and four Seals of Preservation.
The advance eliminates numerous hours of grinding and can be used on a new character or an existing one. To use it, simply log in before the 31st, and you should automatically receive the advance. It can then be applied at character select or in character creation.
You have until January 31st to grab the free character advance.
Thanks to everyone who sent this in as a news suggestion.
