DC Universe Online is a superhero-themed MMORPG from Sony Online Entertainment. Based on the world-famous characters depicted in the DC Universe comics, this fast-action free Online RPG lets you create a powerful hero worthy of training with Superman, Batman or Wonder Woman. There is also the alternative option of playing a villain, who will be taken under the dastardly wings of Joker, Lex Luthor or Circe. Your mentor choice will determine your starting zone and principal quest rewards. Players are also given the freedom to pick their unique superpowers. There are six superpower sets available, including
More than its popular brand of superheroes and villains, fans of DC Universe Online praise the game’s rapid combat. Just like what happens in comics and cartoons, DCUO characters can unleash knockout combos, leap across buildings, and pummel their way through a mob of enemies. The game uses a state-of-the-art physics engine that even allows you to use environmental weapons and even pick up a fallen foe to be thrown at another unsuspecting target. Players can take on solo missions or group up for dungeons and raids, many of which take place in memorable DC Universe locales such as the Fortress of Solitude, the Batcave and the Justice League Watchtower.
Story-wise, DC Universe Online is set in the modern-era when a future version of Lex Luthor has come with a dire warning: Brainiac is coming. He tells of the future when superheroes and villains waged a brutal final war that saw both sides decimate each other, which left Earth undefended from the invasion of Brainiac and his robot army. Future Lex Luthor then narrates how he has brought to present-day Earth a powerful technology called exobytes that, when spread in the atmosphere, will lead to the rise of thousands of new super-powered humans. You are one of those exobyte-fueled creations. Whether you join the heroes or villains is completely up to you, with each side offering a great storyline. Superhero customization is also widely supported. There are hundreds of costumes and appearance-enhancing combat gear that can be bought at vendors, looted in dungeons or won in hardcore PvP battles. Players can choose to purchase more exclusive wares at the Station Cash online store, and also upgrade their account to premium access to receive additional downloadable content packs. As a free-to-play game, DC Universe Online will impress action-loving fans with its immersive superhero world and adrenaline-pumping combat mechanics.
