DC Universe Online
fans have much to look forward to over the next few months. In addition
to Update 3 which launched just last week with a new four-player alert
and new missions with Poison Ivy and Swamp Thing, Update 4 is coming up
Update 4 will put Brainiac in the Fortress of Solitude and force
Superman to do something he may have never dreamed of doing before:
team up with Zod and Lex Luthor to get Brainiac out of his Fortress.
The new mission will have players facing off against Brainiac in a wave
event which will take place directly in the Fortress of Solitude. The
event will be targeted to those of level 30 and is in response to
player feedback of wanting more Superman in their DCUO.
In addition to the epic battle, a new tier of iconic armor will make
its way into the game as well as a new currency players can use to
purchase even more upgrades. Marks of Krypton will be available through
the mission and with those marks players will be able to choose from a
wide variety of gear and upgrades.
If helping Superman isn't your thing, there will be more content for
you to enjoy. Taking its popularity seriously, SOE will be introducing
a new 4-man version of the Batman instance. Previously this content was
only available as a raid in the game, so now smaller groups can enjoy
it too. The 4-player version will obviously be less difficult and will
have some variations to its raid counterpart, but the theme, map and
overall story will remain intact in the "light" version.
The update is scheduled later this summer, which will put DCUO at two
launched updates over the summer; a rare feat for any MMOG.
