SOE announces further PSN outage rewards

Sony Online Entertainment has expanded its "Make Good" plans to reward customers who have been unable to access its games following the attack on both its and the PSn servers last month.

The company had already announced 30 days free subscription time as well as one additional day for each day it remains down. Now it’s also offering a range of free in-game items.

In addition, lifetime subscribers will get some free in-game currency. Free Relams users will get 20,000 coins, Clone Wars Adventures players get 7,5000 Galactic Credits and DC Universe Online users will get 10 Marks of Distinction.

All Station Access subscribers will get 500 Station Cash free, too.

"In light of the recent outage of Sony Online Entertainment’s game services due to April’s cyber-attack, we are committed to compensating our loyal player base for the inconvenience caused by the data breach and lost game time while we improve our security measures," a statement read.

"We are currently in the process of an extensive upgrade to our network to further protect your information from future attacks. It will likely be at least a few more days before we restore our services, and when we come back online, here is what you can expect for each of our game services.

"We continue to work around the clock to restore SOE’s services and thank you for your continued patience as we complete our investigation of this criminal attack."

Here’s the list of give-aways in full:

• DC Universe Online: Batman and Two-Face Inspired Masks and 30 Marks of Distinction
• Free Realms: Free daily items (7 to collect)
• Clone Wars Adventures: Count Dooku v2 Outfit
