Base Builder’s Weekend and Producer’s Letter!

Hello again everyone,

I wanted to thank all the DC Universe Online fans out there for their support of our latest DLC Pack, Home Turf.  To ensure that we were as responsive to our players as possible, we did something new with the launch of Home Turf – we created discussion threads for each new piece of content or feature in the Developer Discussion section of our official forums.  The designers that owned the content have been monitoring and participating in those discussions, and we've received loads of great feedback.  As a result, we have been able to turn around a couple of server updates with polish, tweaks, and bug fixes in the first few days, with more to come. The discussions are ongoing, so if you haven't yet weighed in, we invite you to do so.  

Base Builder's Weekend

In celebration of the launch of Home Turf, we will be doubling your chances of getting Base loot this weekend.  Simply put, we will double the odds that you will gain Base items when collecting just about any type of loot in the game, starting Saturday.  This means that you're practically guaranteed to get some in Raid content, and close to certain to in Alerts.  So be sure to log in and deck out your Bases.

I'd like to especially thank our US PS3 players for their patience as we dealt with some load-related downtime over the last few days. Those issues are resolved and we're looking forward to a great first weekend. 

Best,
Larry Liberty
Executive Producer
DC Universe Online

 

Seasons Greetings Is Back!

Season's Greedings! Starting December 11th, Larfleeze is back for our Winter seasonal event, and he's not JUST stealing presents this year. In the chaos caused in the wake of his holiday heists, he's managed to put a plan into place for an even more perilous plunder. He has turned his attention to the ongoing battle between the Green Lantern Corps and the Sinestro Corps in Downtown Metropolis, taking Power Rings from the fallen Lanterns and keeping them for himself! And not just one or two rings, no, but as many as his greedy orange mitts can grab!

North East Geek Expo Gearing up!

One of the most amazing things about geek culture is the conventions and expo's. Wether its dressing up as your favorite super hero, dueling others in trading card games or just meeting like minded people, expos and cons is where its at. This year I will have the privelege to attend the North East Geek Expo, In the smallville-esque town of Jefferson, Ohio. The greater Cleveland-Ashtabula area is very much present with geek history from such notables as Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster (Createors of Superman) and the famed American Splendor Writer Harvey Pekar. Which makes this area perfect for down to earth conventions and back to basics geek culture. I will be interviewing organizers of the show, panelists and expo goers, so tune in to dcuounlimeted.com to get all the scoop.

5th DLC Announced!!!

 

Hand of fate producers letter
 
Hello everyone,
I'm pleased to announce DC Universe Online's next DLC Pack – Hand of Fate! This marks our fifth DLC Pack, and it is unlike anything we've offered to date. It brings a whole new type of gameplay designed from the ground up to draw players out into our iconic, open-world cities, Gotham City and Metropolis. Featuring loads of side missions and a whole new type of group mission we call Operations, Hand of Fate will enrich our massive open world areas in unexpected ways, deepening and enlivening the game as players encounter not just the world and its challenges, but each other along the way. We are also excited to introduce Utility Belt Attachments. This handy item greatly expands loadout options and makes it viable to use more trinkets, toys, and consumables – ultimately opening the door to more fun and deeper tactics. Personally, I could never justify keeping a toy equipped when I played, no matter how fun it was, but now it's easy to have one at the ready. Read on for details!
