IGN: CES 2009: DC Universe Online Update Preview

January 10, 2009 - Sony Online Entertainment's ambitious DC Universe Online was on display at CES 2009 in Las Vegas this week and we were fortunate enough to see a brief new demo of the game in motion. For those unaware, DCUO incorporates the 100-plus iconic superheroes and villains from the DC brand into an wide-open massively multiplayer online experience -- one void of the clunky, unpolished control mechanics typically associated with such titles and instead complemented by uncommonly responsive character maneuverability and plenty of unsolicited action. It's an intriguing concept that comic fanboys are sure to love because it offers both simplicity and depth simultaneously: the ability to run around huge, recognizable cities and battle against masked heroes and vigilantes rarely seen off of paper, but also to meticulously raise your own hero or villain from infancy to stardom with all the defining bells and whistles of an MMORPG.
