DC Universe Online, an MMO slated for a November 2010 release on PC and PS3, is shaping up to be pretty amazing. Boasting an impressive amount of well-known DC heroes and villains, fans of the game will be excited from the recent trailer released at San Diego Comic-Con.
The trailer doesn’t include any actual gameplay footage, but with it clocking in a little over 6 minutes, plenty of story and build-up to the actual game itself is there. I will admit, I’ve never been a huge DC fan. The characters of the Marvel universe always appealed to me more, but I’d be a liar if I didn’t say that this trailer blew me away.
Even though I have limited knowledge of the DC universe, I was able to spot characters like Wonder Woman, Flash, Black Adam, Green Lantern, Batman, Cyborg, Superman, Lex Luthor, Deathstroke, The Joker, and Harley Quinn. There were a couple I wasn’t too sure of, but by the powers of ‘Google Magic’, I think Circe and Giganta were in there as well. The only thing I didn’t care for was the Batman costume used during the beginning of the trailer, mainly because I prefer the traditional one I’ve become familiar with, but it wasn’t a deal breaker or anything. Regardless, fans and non-fans of DC are sure to get goosebumps off of this.
If you’re chomping at the bit for this game, I don’t blame you. Sign-ups for the beta are underway, and while I’m not a huge fan of MMO’s, nor am I a big PC gamer, I couldn’t help but sign myself up for this. Those of you who wish to participate in the beta, for either PS3 or PC, can go and register here at www.dcuniverseonline.com. The process is quick, easy, and I hope you guys get invited!
