One Shots: Selfie school

I certainly did not have to twist readers’ arms to get them to bring out a mountain of MMORPG character selfies set against interesting backdrops. Of course, everyone had their own definition of what that should mean…

“When it comes to character selfies the backdrop becomes less important if there is an important lore character in your picture,” said Ryuen. “Case in point: My humble Monk managed to snare Firiona Vie herself in EverQuest II for a quick pic before she had to attend to more pressing matters.”

She had more box art modeling to do. It’s exhausting, being one of the last of the Midriff Elves in the game.

DC Universe Online joins Aquaman in Atlantis

With the Aquaman movie coming this December, DC Universe Online doesn’t want to be left out of the fishy fun. Just before the movie opens, DCUO is going to push out a special event called Atlantis in November. The content update will take players beneath the waves to attempt to stop a brewing rebellion that could affect the entire world.

The episode will offer “level-agnostic” versions in both solo and multiplayer varieties. Fan favorite characters such as Aquaman, Mera, Ocean Master, Aqualad, and Murk are due to be a part of the proceedings.

“From the magic of Arion to the dystopian future of Flashpoint, Atlantis has always been at the center of DC Comics history,” said Daybreak Head of Games Jack Emmert. “It is beyond exciting to be able to bring this world to life in DC Universe Online. I can’t wait for everyone to see what we have built.”

DC Universe Online adds the Teen Titans storyline Judas Contract today

It’s time for a new story in DC Universe Online, and this time the game is taking a spin with one of the universe’s more popular teams with the Teen Titans. Since Cyborg is leaving the Titans to work with the Justice League full-time, there’s a hole in the Titan roster. Players of the heroic persuasion are eligible, and players of the villainous bent are sneaking in anyway… but there’s another infiltrator sent by Deathstroke, and players will need to ferret out who it might be.

The patch includes new duo content, new raids and elite raids, and a new alert as part of the overall story arc. There’s also the new Augment system in the game, replacing the old R&D system and equipping various Augments directly to your character. Check out the full patch notes to know what you’ll be diving into, and then go hang out with a bunch of teenagers.

The Stream Team: A second attempt at DCUO’s second part of The Death of Superman

DC Universe Online launches part 3 of the Death of Superman

He lived, he died, and he’ll probably live again. Not just because comics tend to bring people back to life, but because, well, the whole Death of Superman event ended with an alive Superman. But perhaps you’ll be surprised with the third part of the event in DC Universe Online, which goes live today at 12:00 p.m. EDT. No downtime is expected for the change, so you can just keep playing and then move forward!

The third part was already tested on the game’s test server and involved heading out to find Superman’s corpse, which will probably be instrumental in reviving him. Or walking through Metropolis with him all Weekend at Bernie’s-style. Whichever one strikes your fancy, you’ll be able to do it yourself once the update is triggered. New rewards, new fights, and a fresh Superman corpse await you! At noon. Until then, you’ll need to just amuse yourself with jokes about his status as a dead guy.

Meanwhile, Daybreak has also surprise-announced the kryptonian time capsule via stream!

DCUO adds a civil war as a summer vacation destination

Superheroes and swimsuits — what’s not to love? Even the hardest working warriors of justice deserve a vacation now and then. For them (and you too, faithful chum), there’s DC Universe Online’s summer event, which is now live on the servers.

The Tides of War summer event pits Aquaman against Ocean Master, with players choosing one or the other to champion. For those who participate in the Atlantean civil war, there are plenty of new feats, collections, base items, island styles, and a “bubbly” aura that will no doubt be the butt of every fart joke going forward.

The event arrived with today’s Game Update 84. Players should note that DCUO has now increased the artifact cap to 160, expanded the inventory menu, enabled Operation: Underworld Trials and Harley’s Heist to be cross-faction, and thrown in prestige as another reward for Doomsday fights.

DC Universe Online opens testing for the third part of the Death of Superman

Superman has died. Bereft of life, he’s gone to meet his maker. But of course DC Universe Online isn’t leaving it there, and players will soon have to deal with the fact that Superman’s body has gone missing from the Fortress of Solitude. This leads Supergirl to conclude that someone used the Phantom Zone Projector to steal it, which makes sense to somebody. Regardless, the third part of the story will see players heading out to find that corpse, and it’s available on the game’s test server right now.

Players can take on new feats, pick up new reward items, and take on one more mission in the latest update on the test server; the patch is also meant to address a number of minor bugs and fix various quality-of-life issues. Check out the full rundown from the early patch notes, or just jump in and start testing the update now.
