Nine years worth of DC Universe Online and the devs feel like celebrating with some special free stuff and a few other events for you. Daybreak Games posted a message to the players about the anniversary, thanking them for the support and detailing what they have for you. First, all Open Episodes are back. All players can play through Episode 35, with increased loot lockout times. Open Episodes will run through the end of the month, with the only exception being Metal Part II. What's more, all players who participate will receive one free Character Advance. Everyone can get bosted to CR255, except Nintendo Switch players who can get to CR100 to get started. Plus, current members will receive a Special Member Appreciation Gift Box filled with additional perks. Here's the details of what's included in those DC Universe Online perks.
The following player and member gifts are also available:
All players: One FREE Character Advance to CR255 (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC) or to CR100 (Nintendo Switch) to get you right into the fight. This character advance also comes with numerous starter items, and the new Hera's Strength 2020 gear suit will be available for all platforms. If fans want the Hera's Strength style on multiple characters, they can pick it up through Style Unlocking after they have equipped it on any character.
Members: Special Member Appreciation Gift Box with the Member Gift Artifact Cache, Artifact Catalysts, XP, and Seals, and the full set of all-new Royal Chroma Materials, which allow you to swap out the texture (or "material") on any gear style with a new one. Royal Chroma Materials channel elegance and come in seven colors and three variants to get the ultimate in customization (members get them all).
