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.

DC COMICS Hit’s the RESET Button

Today, DC Comics dropped a huge bomb on DC comic fans.  starting this august DC Comics will hit the reset button and start all 52 titles all with a fresh new issue 1 numbering.  so what this means is that 75 years of comics will be reset to issue 1, and this could be great if you are new to comics but for ol'school comic fans this is not sitting well with them.

First off this comes off as a gimmick and a quick media attention move to try something new, however this may bring in new readers and collectors which is good for the comic book industry but come issue 12 those new readers might leave just like they have shown for a 12 issue first runs.  then you still have the hardcore comic book buyers who where there through issue 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800 and are still there for this revamp of issue 1 hoopla.

For me i don't know what to think, i know getting this media attention is good like when superman died and brought a lot of fans but they left soon after his death and were not here for his rebirth.  is this a moment like that?  a part of me is angry and a part of me is excited, but there is no doubt I'm a 100% DC fanboy and will be here till i take my last breath.  i just hope this turns out great for DC and it's editors for making this bold move.

here is the official press release-

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

By David Hyde

This year, change is in the air at DC Comics.

On Wednesday, August 31st, DC Comics will launch a historic renumbering of the entire DC Universe line of comic books with 52 first issues, including the release of JUSTICE LEAGUE by NEW YORK TIMES bestselling writer and DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns and bestselling artist and DC Comics Co-Publisher Jim Lee. The publication of JUSTICE LEAGUE issue 1 will launch day-and-date digital publishing for all these ongoing titles, making DC Comics the first of the two major American publishers to release all of its superhero comic book titles digitally the same day as in print.

DC Comics will only publish two comic books on August 31st: the final issue of this summer’s comic book mini-series FLASHPOINT and the first issue of JUSTICE LEAGUE by Johns and Lee, two of the most distinguished and popular contemporary comic book creators, who will be collaborating for the first time. Together they will offer a contemporary take on the origin of the comic book industry’s premier superhero team.

In the hours, days and weeks to come, we’ll have more news about the other titles. Tomorrow, we’ll hear from Co-Publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee about this momentous occasion. Keep checking THE SOURCE for updates about the other first issues.
