Fight to survive in DC Universe Online’s new Survival Mode

    
7

DC Universe Online’s game update 95 has gone live as of last night, and it gives players the opportunity to put their superheroic skills to the test with the introduction of Survival Mode. Kicking off its first season, Survival Mode throws players into Titan’s Training Sim, where they will face off in some of the “most difficult battles DCUO has ever seen.”

In this new game mode, players will have to fight to survive 30 grueling rounds of combat, each of which consists of two waves of three minions followed by a challenging boss at the end of each round. Should players rise to the challenge and emerge victorious, they will be rewarded with a new currency, Data Chips. These Data Chips can be exchanged at the Survival Mode Vendor and Survival Mode Season Vendor for a variety of valuable and unique rewards, including materials, auras, base items, style items, orbitals, and pets.

And for fledgling superheroes, the update also introduces a completely revamped tutorial that will see newcomers joining forces with either Superman or Lex Luthor as they fight their way off of Brainiac’s ship while “[learning] how to use [their] powers in a more streamlined experience.” The new-player experience will also be further improved by the addition of the Universal Messaging System, which will provide players with tutorial tips to help them learn about various gameplay elements and notify them of new and ongoing events. For the full details on the update’s new additions, you can find the complete patch notes on the game’s official forums.

30 rounds? Does it have to all be in one sitting? It sounds like a long time to go without a break.

because strange as it may seem to you some folks actually don’t like City of Heroes and may even prefer DCUO.

I have played more DCUO than any of the other super hero game with maybe the exception of Marvel Heroes but for certain much more than I ever played CoH :p

Yeah, I tried to play DCUO again a few months ago and couldn’t put in more than about 5 hours before uninstalling. But I’ve probably logged more than 50 since the rogue Homecoming servers for CoH came online.

That is the great thing about gaming there is something that will suit everyone’s personal tastes and not everything has to work for everyone. Glad you found something you enjoy.

Because some people actually prefer the DC universe. Others prefer the more action combat focus to feeling like they’re playing Everquest reskinned with spandex.

Just a couple stand-out reasons.
