If you were one of the players affected by Sony Online Entertainment
's network-wide downtime yesterday, we have some good news. The company has announced on various social media outlets that it will be giving away two days of free access time to all accounts. This includes
those on Landmark
's beta access accounts as well.
"We deeply regret the recent service interruption that is currently impacting all SOE games," DCUO
Community Manager Mepps
said in a forum post
. "As a thank you for your patience, we will add two days of membership time to all members' accounts."
According to EQ2wire.com
, this downtime was caused by the SonyOnline.net domain name expiring, which SOE president John Smedley addressed in a tweet
: "Sorry for the DNS problems folks. Won't happen again. Notices sent to wrong email. Doh."
