This is What DC Universe Online Will Look Like

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 20 comments

It's like make-your-own-justice-league.

The superhero universe is a match made in heaven for MMO gameplay. City of Heroes showed that it was possible without any expensive license, it was about time that the comic book media involved (without getting cancelled) and soon we'll be getting the DC Universe Online on both the PC and PS3 this November.

Rather than having a city filled with Supermans, Batmans, Flashes, etc, you'll be still making your own hero. But we're still looking forward to it. Released at E3 was this trailer that refreshingly showed all in-engine scenes and some real gameplay.

    You know WoW made all of the money it did for a reason right? Sure it changed over the years in order to make more money, but I really don't see a problem with the original.

    And the game, looks nothing like WoW.

    Graphics are great for what the game's subject matter is. What would you expect from a comic book game, gritty CoD realism!? Of course the graphics are going to be cartoony, it's based off of what is essentially a cartoon that doesn't move!

    But since I'm not a fan of doing my taxes, erm I mean playing MMO's, I probably won't bother with this one.

    You didn't need to see anything about this trailer after the SOE branding near the beginning. They have the Touch of Death for MMOs, and this will be no different. It'll have a fairly successful release followed with a quick demise.

    DC should have known better than to partner with SOE.

    If they avoid the Tank, DPS, Healer crap then i will certainly give the game a try.

    I have a couple of friends that play heroes that I'm sure will love this. I'm more of a Marvel fan myself though.

    That was even less funny than when you posted the same thing on YouTube.

    Sorry SOE, we've already had this game for years.
    It's called City Of Heroes.

    I liked City of Heroes, but the missions and grinding were SO BORING. Maybe the game play will be better here.

    johnh2005Looks pretty good. However, I personally have a couple of problems with it. First off it is SoE, death in a bottle for MMO's. Secondly it is being developed for the PC and the PS3. If the controls of FFXI and FFXIV (which I attempted to Alpha test) are any indication I will not be giving this game a try even if I could get past the SoE thing...

    What is SoE?
