DC Universe Online’s Game Update 88 is live today


The latest game update for DC Universe Online is live today, bringing with it the new Cursed Gotham Time Capsule, a new Grant system, and a handful of other tweaks and changes. The Cursed Gotham Time Capsule comes as an addition to the game’s ongoing Witching Hour festivities. Players who get their hands on one of these new Time Capsules, which are “now dropping everywhere in-game,” have a chance at receiving the new Drowned Gear set, which is inspired by Batman: The Drowned, in addition to “exciting new hand auras, styles, collections, and feats.”

The new Grant system, meanwhile, makes it “easier than ever for [players] to claim any promotional gifts that are available on [their accounts]” thanks to a brand-new UI. To commemorate the new Grant system’s release, Daybreak Games is giving all players three Trick or Teekl Buckets, which can of course be claimed through the new Grant system interface. The update also improves broker performance and alters movement mode abilities “to allow many movement-mode abilities to be used while temporarily in other movement modes.” You can find the full patch notes over on the game’s official forums.
