DC Universe Online, the PS3/PC MMO, has been given a slightly more exact date than TBA 2010 by the DC executives.
i really hope this game turns out worth buying...
I'm not really an MMO guy, but it will be interesting to see how they tell a story in such a game, because it would be a lot easier in a single player game.
But I am really interested in this. I remember playing City of Heros with one of my friends and thinking how cool it was to be a super hero. I'm hoping this will be a similar experience.
Ah, maybe PS3 media sites know the difference. :)
Please let superman prime be in this game.
No heat at all... HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO This is the first PS3 MMO. This is BIG news.
Strange indeed. Anyway, I wonder how big the gameworld is gonna be. Will it be exactly the same on both PC and PS3? How are the hero classes categorized? I wish they gave out more details about this game.
everything looks okay so far my only wish-list is... 1.big dc story arcs... possibly as expansions. it would be very cool to have your characters go thru big dc events like: crisis of infinite earth, the death and return of superman, final crisis, and my new favorite blackest night 2. ADD ALL THE LANTERN CORPS
the most sense that I have seen here in months. My wish list only consisted of "Champions Online but good." but then I read that. They should do that ^^^.
The producers have said in the past that the game WILL have major story arcs that will affect everyone in the world. I'll try and dig out the URL. It's old though. Like, this was said about a year ago.
if the game dosent have comic books story line event arcs then it will be a failure
finally some news about this game. I hope they are doing a beta. Playb3yond
I am not a MMO guy but I am interested in this game and The Agency based off game play footage that I have seen of both games.
Anyone know if you make your own superhero, or do you have to play a scripted DC superhero??
You make your own superhero. Major characters are all non-player characters. Of course, this won't stop unimaginative people from making Bat$mann and VVonder_VVoman.
Pretty sure you create your own, all the "known" character are NPC that you can fight along side or against, depending on your style, goodie/baddie. Edit: beaten to it :)
you create your own hero or villan and follow story based events
Sweet!!! Thanks guys that just sealed the deal for me!!!
I didn't even know that, I guess that makes it easier for them to tell a story now, because your character will essentially be able to do quests and fight specific enemies depending on whether you are good or bad.
Finally some news about this game. I know I'll be getting this first day.
What is the source of this news? I'm not saying it's fake, but it would be nice if PS3Center stated where this is coming from. Did the publisher tell them? Did they read it in a mag? Did an exec mention it at a conference? N4G needs to start rejecting stories that don't quote the source (where applicable). It would at least add a sense of authenticity to the content.
ive been seeing on stores sites @ end of june,who knows,its prob end of 2010 lolz
ps3 pc here we come baby!
Has big potential and i like marvel but there is something so classy about dc i think its cause of batman
I know what you mean. I like Marvel a lot too. But I think DC characters define the word "superheroes' much better. DC characters have that angelic feel to them. They're more like 'high up in the sky', whereas Marvel characters are more 'down to earth' type.
I like DC but the characters are to um PERFECT and i would love for them to try and do a marvel game like this
There was a time when I actually preferred Marvel characters over DC. But now I'm tired of all these anti-hero agenda they seem to have. I miss the old days where superheroes were just heores. Realistic/gritty takes are good every once in a while, but these guys are called 'superheroes' for a reason, and not just because they're boy-scouts.
Don't forget .....DC universe online is FREE to play.This game will be a big hit on the PS3 and a free MMORPG is one of the reasons i'm going to buy this game. This can be a new milestone for console MMO's. Comic legend JIM LEE is also behind this project.
