DC Universe Online Hands On Preview

Updated Wed, Aug 11, 2010 by Martuk

Sony Online Entertainment is looking to break into the superhero MMOG market in a big way with DC Universe Online. At this year's SOE Fan Faire, Ten Ton Hammer's Benjamin J. de la Durantaye had the chance to get some hands-on time with the game and find out what SOE has put together for the DC Universe. Join Ben as he dawns his cape and tights to explore the streets of DC Universe Online.

I, like many of you, have been keeping an eye on DCUO for some time now. Admittedly, my interest levels may have been a little different than some of yours as I didn't read DC Comics when I was young. My mother felt comic books were too violent, so I didn't even really know many characters outside of Superman and Batman until my young adult life. But as it turns out, that's not a problem, explained Mark L. Norris, Game Designer for DC Universe Online. As you encounter various characters throughout the game you will get a Jim-Lee-Inspired comic animation that explains who the characters are and a bit of their history--perfect for a bloke like me who lived a somewhat sheltered childhood.
