DC Universe Online – Update 9 announced!

DC Universe Online has slowly become the definitive comic-book based videogame of all time. From heavily promoted beginnings as the first licensed superhero MMORPG, through rocky terrain with lacklustre content and PS3 hacks, it has risen into a genuinely enthralling experience that’s left few corners of the DC Universe untouched.

In Blackest Ni... oh, hamburgers!

Having put out DLC content focused on Green Lantern (Fight For The Light) and The Flash (Lightning Strikes), it’s due to bring out a third DLC in March. Already confirmed is a magical raid set in New Themyscira to end the Brainiac story (in short, he tried to take over Earth but was thwarted in the Batcave and Fortress of Solitude raids), along with the heavily rumoured appearance of Earth powers to add to Hardlight (Green Lantern) and Electric (pseudo The Flash, given the Speed Force connection).

But that’s in the distance.

Before that comes Update 9. Little is known about it, except that it’ll add easier versions of pre-existing raids for the less hardcore player. So people can finish off the first 66% of the Brainiac story before the Wonder Woman themed (I’m assuming) final raid pops up in DLC 3.

It’s a good time to be playing the game. There were rocky patches as mentioned above, but it has slowly evolved into an exhaustive universe. With the rise of comic-book properties and adaptational changes, it’s refreshing to see a computer game provide such a wonderful immersive experience. Whether it’s hanging with Superman in the Fortress of Solitude, or listening to Aquaman’s many inspired riffs in The Watchtower, the game is one long geek out.

Krypto smash!
