Daybreak Games has officially launched DC Universe Online on the Xbox One, allowing Xbox Live players to create a character and adventure in the DC Universe.
“Xbox One players can finally channel their inner Super Hero – or Super-Villain. Whether they want to run fast like The Flash, fly like Superman or wield ice like Captain Cold, we have more than five years’ worth of content to adventure through in DC Universe Online,” said SJ Muller, DCUO Creative Director, in a press release. “DCUO is the only MMO set in the DC Comics universe, and its physics-based combat allows players to really feel like they are part of this action-packed Super Hero world.”
In DCUO, players create their own Super Heroes or Super-Villains and equip them with their favorite superpowers to protect or cause chaos in the sprawling comic worlds of Metropolis, Gotham City and beyond. Players can also fight as any of the 40 available iconic DC Comics characters in Legends PvP and PvE game modes, including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Joker, Harley Quinn, The Flash, Green Arrow and more.
Since its initial launch in 2011, Daybreak Games has expanded DC Universe Online with 20 original expansion Episodes. In 2016, Daybreak has already added content inspired by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, with Water powers and new content focused on Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Darkseid and Gotham Girls still planned for release this year.
Episodes, as well as Legends characters and powers, are available to purchase individually or can be accessed through DCUO Membership. Xbox One users will be able to access all content currently available, and in the future, all game updates and marketplace additions are planned to release simultaneously across all platforms.
