Platform Nation bring us some facts and 25 new screenshots for DC Universe Online which was released today.
Yep, I jumped in it. I'm having a good old time with it so far. The bugs I noticed in the beta have been ironed out, and didnt have any freezing or lock ups today. I only got a few hours of gameplay in, but in the beta it was freezing pretty regularly. Over all im very happy with the launch of this mmo on the ps3. Not that you can really score a game like this on launch day, but what ive seen so far would lend me t believe that its a solid 8-8.5/10 game
thats really interesting to read you think many of the bugs have been ironed out.
Only people having issues are Austrailians (whose codes dont work as they're region isn't allowed yet), Singapore and a couple places in Asia and people Hell bent on using wifi for MMOs. It might be ok for multiplayer console games, but anyone playing MMOs needs a dedicated connection. Great launch, all in all. Game is ridiculously fun.
I am scared to try it, just incase it saps the next 4 years of my life dry! Is there a couple of months trial or are you paying right off the bat?
You get 30 days free when you buy the game.
I think I'll wait then until I can pick it up discounted and the game has been patched with a proven player base. it looks a great idea, but I don't want to be stuck with an expensive dead online experience.
Keep posting on here please. Im not sure whether to get it or not, I want to see the general thoughts of players and not reviews.
- game world is huge. - so many collectibles - achievements actually MEAN something, at lvl cap you trade points for extra skills. - great cusomization. You can change your palette and gear at any time. You can change gear without changing your style (look). - you can go anywhere on the map right off the bat. No invisible walls or tiered movement bs. - combat if fun. Think 3rd person action RPG. - very story driven. - voice acting for every quest. - cutscenes and extra comic cgi with major events Anything else and I'll keep posting as it comes. Taking everything into account, I've been at MMOs for over 10 years, and this was the most refreshing, liberating MMO I've seen in a good while. If they keep up with the steady content and power updates as promised I may not play another game till Guild Wars 2.
It's FREE for the first 30 days of your purchase.
is it fun?
best MMO ive played so far
It's a lot of fun, and it's more action oriented than your regular MMO. A lot of missions and stuff to do.
Are PS3 servers seperate from PC, or do the two platforms get to play together?
Ah, that kinda sucks. Still, I'm not getting this anyway, I just wanted to know that detail. Thanks for the reply, + bubble.
Great smooth launch on the pc side. Villains are a bit over populated, but that's typical of the "cool" baddies faction of any mmo release.
At least I'm my server. Heroes were collecting all the bounties and while both sides were populated, I saw a lot of heroes. Circe, while unpopular is the most entertaining mentor, simply by virtue of being so damn manaical! She's as nutty as the Joker. Edit: @ below. Yeah and she's just plain EVIL! Which is what you really want if playing a villain. Lex has a masculinity/ inferiority complex, The Joker is just crazy, but Circe is an evil Goddess bent on bringing demon lords into the world and consuming human souls! Now we're talking! ;)
agreed, from the beta Circe had some of the best missions, and her showdown at about level 15(you'll know what I mean if you reach there) is very different than normal and a nice change.
Yesterday when I got into the game the pvp server "No mans land" was medium full, but at around 8 pm that thing was Highly populated. A lot of battles and people desperate to level up. The amount of people took a toll on the server and it started acting up. It was fun, but maybe they shoul reduce the amount of people that get into one server so people spread out more, or maybe make you able to move your character between servers, because as it is everyone and their mother is trying to level up on the same pvp server to start some serious Gangfights, lol.
