Research and Development

 From dcuniverseonline.com

Since Brainiac’s arrival, scientists and engineers the world over have been working tirelessly to learn everything possible about the Exobytes Lex Luthor released into the atmosphere. Though many of the Exobytes have found their way to human hosts, still more have gone dormant and begun to decay. Finally, breakthroughs in nanite technology will allow Heroes and Villains to find and utilize these unclaimed Exobytes in the form of powerful Equipment Mods and Consumables! Beginning at level 10, players can begin to enjoy the benefits of modified technology.

 

Gather Exobits and Exobytes!

The first step in harnessing the untapped power of the Exobytes lies in finding them. Residual Exobytes in the world have broken down into units called Exobits. These smaller pieces are scattered around Gotham City, Metropolis, and Central City. Gather the Exobits, then forge them into new Exobytes of varying qualities at Research and Development stations.

Research Plans!

Of course, before construction can begin, you must decide what kind of item you wish to create. Equipment Mods can be socketed into gear for powerful benefits, and various Consumables will lend you bonuses for short durations of time. Plans for the creation of either can be found throughout the world or purchased at new Research and Development vendors.

Develop Equipment Mods and Consumables!

Once you have learned the appropriate plan, collect the necessary components, including Exobytes, and assemble the new item at a Research and Development station. Equipment Mods come in various colors which, when matched with similarly colored sockets on your gear, can provide even further bonuses and power.

Salvage!

Finally, some gear found in the world can now be deconstructed at Research and Development stations to aid in the process. Salvaging these items will return Research and Development components that can be used in other recipes.

Research and Development is right around the corner, coming soon in Game Update 8.

IGN: E3 2011: Superman Needs You in DC Universe Online

IGN's Greg Miller posted another article and game update 3 video read and view video-

 

 
IGN Article
t's time to help Superman. DC Universe Online has been getting content updates since the game came out, but most have something to do with Batman — Sony Online Entertainment just announced Game Update Three, and it's all about Ra's al Ghul — but that's about to change. At E3, SOE will talk Game Update Four and its plans to take you to the Fortress of Solitude, Superman's arctic base, but who wants to wait to see it and hear about?

IGN sure doesn't, so we grabbed new Game Director Mark Anderson — a man who came from the God of War franchise and has been with SOE for four years now — and asked him about DC Universe Online's Super-update, bugs, servers and burning topics for rabid fans.

 
IGN: When you guys originally talked about DCUO updates, you talked about them being monthly. There was some trouble getting that off the ground in the beginning, but you are about to release your third update and are already talking about the fourth. Have you figured out the sweet science or is mantra "publish when it's ready?"

Mark Anderson: We're excited to be releasing Game Update Three: Ra's al Ghu's Revenge and to begin talking about the next game update, which has many things players have been asking us to bring to the experience. Because of the length of time it takes to plan, develop and test we're obviously working on releases that are sometimes planned quite some time down the road. I would love to say we had it down to a science, but the truth is that each new piece of gameplay we develop comes with its own challenges, and we want to continue to raise the quality bar for each successive release. I don't think that the development of any form of game can ever really say it becomes a science, as finding the fun takes time even with a proven model. Having said that, we're looking to build on the core strengths of the game and are striving to hit a regular pace or stride that our players can count on. We're not there yet but we are getting better. Most importantly we are trying to make sure that we evolve and grow the game based on what our players are telling us so that we continue to make the game better rather than just adding more.

IGN: SOE suffered some company-wide layoffs a few months ago. How has this impacted DCUO?

Mark Anderson: Losing part of your team is very hard, developing a game together builds strong bonds, and team members become more like family. The size of a team required to develop and launch a game is typically much larger than we'd have supporting the live game, and so we move forward with a core team that can carry the game we all built together and ensure we do it justice. We have a very strong and experienced team that is more than capable of delivering the quality of live experience that DCUO deserves.

IGN: As DC fanboy, I've dug the updates, but they've all been pretty Batman-centric in terms of locations and villains. As a representative of the House of El, will I be happy with Game Update 4? What's in it?

Mark Anderson: If you're into all things Kryptonian, I think you'll be very pleased with not only Game Update Four but also the next few updates. We've got to give the Man of Steel his due, and he can't be contained to a single update. To start off, we take you to the Fortress of Solitude where Brainiac continues on his march to absorb all that the Earth has to offer. With an army at his doorstep, Superman needs all the help he can get to stop Brainiac from using the powers of his home world against the people of Earth, even if it means developing a fragile alliance with one of his greatest enemies. This is the start of our next series of 8-player group content, and it's got some really jaw-dropping stuff.

Green Lantern Movie Sypnopis

In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan.

Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris, if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax…he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.

New DCUO Raid Area……….?

Tonight DCUO's New Game Director Mark Anderson showed us a glimpse of a new area and possible a new raid area, it's superman's home away from home.  Fortress of Solitude!!!

This is a very nice DLC that looks to be coming in update 3.  here is a history of the Fortress of Solitude-

The Fortress of Solitude is the occasional headquarters of Superman in DC Comics.[1] Its predecessor, Superman's "Secret Citadel", first appeared in Superman #17, where it was said to be built into a mountain on the outskirts of Metropolis. However, the formal introduction of the Fortress took place in the story "The Super-Key to Fort Superman", published in Action Comics #241 (June 1958).

Traditionally, the Fortress of Solitude is located in the Arctic,[1] though more recent versions of the Superman comics have placed the Fortress in other locations, including the Antarctic, the Andes and the Amazon rainforest. The general public in Superman's world is either unaware or at best only vaguely aware of the existence of the Fortress, with its location kept secret from all but Superman's closest friends and allies (such as Lois Lane and Batman). A trademark of the Fortress is that it contains a memorial statue of Jor-El and Lara, Superman's Kryptonian parents, holding a large globe of Krypton. Although Superman has living quarters at the Fortress, his main residence is still Clark Kent's apartment in Metropolis.

Check back for more details from tonight's event.

DCUO Getting Super Servers

 

In shocking fashion DC Universe Online announced on the official page that they will be going from the many servers they currently have to single server shards.  The small post released the following statement.

We have heard your concerns about queue times on the servers. This game is about people playing and fighting together so we feel your pain. Sometime in the next month, we are going to test new technology to meld all of our US and European PC and PS3 servers into four Super-Servers, one for each platform in each region. This will allow for more opportunities to queue and participate in other group related game mechanics. We are hoping to get this on our PC Test Server to start testing, again, sometime in the next month and then will tune it up for the PS3 platform as well. As soon as we know more about testing and timing we will let you know. But, believe this – it is one of our top priorities. Again, thanks for your patience, we appreciate your support.

We’ll have more details at a future date.

With this information, it begs the question on if the game is having a rapidly declining user base.  Will this mean that the end of subscription service could be coming soon also to a move to free-to-play?  Time will only tell on that.  But we will keep up date with any info we come across.
