DCUO is switching its update cadence from quarterly to monthly

DCUO

DC Universe Online creative director Jens Andersen has posted a pretty important update on the game’s forums. Daybreak’s superhero MMO will begin launching new content on a monthly basis instead of the previous quarterly cadence. New gear and associated rewards will also switch from quarterly to monthly.

Beginning with game update 47, DCUO’s marks of fury and marks of triumph will be merged into a single marks of victory currency. “New and existing players will be less intimidated by skyrocketing marks of triumph numbers, and better able to utilize features that require upkeep,” Andersen says.

He also mentions future collaborations with DC Comics and Warner Brothers, one of which will be the first piece of new content released under the new schedule.

I don’t owm either of the new consoles, but that definitely sounds like an issue related to how your PC and your TV are communicating with one another. I have heard of this sort of problem before.

Unfortunately, I don’t have enough tech savvy in this regard to help. Perhaps you could try googling the phrase “connecting my PC to my TV” (keep the quotation marks; it tells Google to read the words as a complete phrase) and see what sorts of helpful discussions you can find?

Or, naybe someone here on MOp will see this post, and they can point you in the right direction.

Good luck,

Cheers,

mysecretid cromahr Oyjord I prefer to use the XBOX 360 controller when I play DCUO on my PC.  Whenever I try to hook my PC up to my TV, however, the text on the screen gets a little hard to read.  I would have to think that on the PS4 this wouldn’t be an issue, would it?

Typically, new powersets are added through the different DLC packs — so, you’re not *only* getting a power set or power sets for your money, but yeah, you are spending money to get them.
I’m not convinced that this was the best way to go either; I totally understand that the game needs to make money (and that most power sets weren’t ready at launch — another problem), but a lot of players hate to feel constantly nickel-and-dimed just to get what they wanted to play at start.
It just sets up a bad feeling for certain players. Give gamers what they hope to see, and many gamers will throw money at your game (e.g. The Secret World, for one example), but there’s a number of gamers who balk at feeling pressured into buying more, just to get the starting character they came in wanting to play …
Hope this helps,
Cheers,

couldn’t care less about DCUO, but it’s nice to see a game ramping UP its production schedule for once, steada down.

Do new Powersets still cost money to buy, before being able to use?
Would be interested in creating a new character, but not if I have to first purchase a specific powerset before I create the character.

I use an XBox360 USB controller with my PC. Like you, I got very used to playing DCUO with my mouse and keyboard, amd I preferred that method.
I tried using the controller for a bit, just to see how it would work; it worked fine — and some in-game processes seemed easier or faster, but like you, I was more used to the mouse and keyboard with DCUO, so I went back to that.
Totally a preference thing. It’s my opinion that either way works fine — it’s more, what do you prefer?

Greaterdivinity Hurbster I have mentioned before that I am in a weekly static for DCUO doing some of the end game stuff  and one of the members is f2p. He manages but has to jump through a few hoops that we do not have to deal with as all access peeps.
Its doable if you are patient but for me I prefer the convenience of just being able to play what I want when I log in so that makes it worth the sub to me personally, others people feel differently /shrugs :-)

I cant help but feel this is going to rush the implementation of features but good luck to them if they can pull it off.
