DC Universe Online Trailer is a Real Fan Pleaser

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 18 comments

The fanboy side of me is very excited.

It was Comic-Con last week, which was the perfect place to unveil a little more of the upcoming Sony MMO, DC Universe Online.

The release for this PC and PlayStation 3 game is set for November 2, and console gamers will be relieved to learn that there won't be any need for the PlayStation Plus subscription. The usual monthly MMO rates will still apply, though.

Check out this latest story trailer, which is filled purely with cinematics, but still quite entertaining for anyone who likes the DC Universe.

    yeah, i was pretty unexcited for this game, btu after this trailer I'm watching closely.

    granted its only cinematic, but if the game has as much attention to detail and the universe I'm sold. may be the MMO that hooks me until SW TOR. after a deluge of average MMOs (Aion springs immediately to mind), it will be nice to see something good, the real question then comes down to this, or FF 14...

    i have complete faith in Sony, not as of late but rather back in the day when they actually cared about in-game content like in Everquest.

    The cinematic is awesome but it all depends on the game and how SoE handles it. We'll see...

    Na.... I want BOTH!!!!

    Nice trailer.... just wondering how close the real game will be to the trailer.

    hmmm.... thinking about replaying the characters' voice with the online players voice (and some trash talks).... hmmm...... I am scared...>_<

    well... at least nice job on the trailer!

    The graphics look absolutely terrible, even for an online game. No thanks.

    Man I wonder which this is based off because Superman made Black Adam look like a wuss. Black Adam is like Shazaam and should have given him a fight. Then again he was pretty pissed looking and had probably been setting in front of the sun for who knows how long absorbing power.

    Glad to see Kevin Conroy as Batman and Mark Hamil as the Joker (best for each). Too bad they didn't get Tim Daly for Superman.

    I truly think a Animated movie like this would probably be awesome.

    Just wish it was a F2P after buying. I would so love to play it but am meh on paying fees.

    As a long time everquest subscriber, I feel that soe will inevitably create a fail game. It happened in EQ, EQ2 Starwars etc. The financial backers usually push to hard to releae the stuff to early let alone uterly destroying the games. I would honestly trust an unknown before SOE. Saddly either way I will end up playing the game, but im not keeping my hopes up.

    Great trailer! I hope the game turns out to be good, because as much as I love City of Heroes it is dated and Champions Online,(while very pretty) could really use more content. It would just be fantastic to have a fun MMO set in an iconic setting like the DC Universe. Marvel really screwed up not going with Cryptic for the Marvel MMO. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    after what SONY did to Vanguard: Saga of heroes that was the best fantasy mmorpg ever made in terms of depth, graphics, world, gameplay i will never ever get my hands on that company again...............

    i did cancel my account, and stopped playing the game. I wonder from mmorpg to mmorpg only to find that most companies spend millions on "shallow", boring games.

    i had found a game that was typical of the western world cast of mind and not a consloe type of asian - corean world, but that went down the drain thx to SOE..........

    and in our days where pcs are strong enough to make good graphics, this game looks HORRIBLE..............
