You know who Superman is. He’s kind of a big deal in the DC Universe, which means he’s also a big deal in DC Universe Online. Unfortunately, that means that there are things even he can’t handle on his own, and that’s where the players intersect with him in the latest DCUO update. There’s a problem with the Phantom Zone, which means four players will need to go into the Phantom Zone to see what’s happening, while solo players will need to storm Lex Luthor’s Science Spire to chase down a criminal from within the Phantom Zone who escaped.
Superman, meanwhile, is investigating some other threat off-world. It’s probably for the best he didn’t just ask players to fly his dog around.
In addition to the two new bits of content, players who use the Light powerset will find that their trees have been rebalanced and their abilities altered as part of the ongoing powerset refinement and improvement. The Light Weight and Chain Whip powers specifically have swapped places, allowing players more options to build both ranged and melee damage within the same overall build. Check out the full GU57 patch notes for all of the changes, or just log in and start cleaning up Kal-El’s big lingering mess. Though the servers were having issues yesterday, they should be back up now.
