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.


The Stream Team: Doing The Death of Superman, Part 2 in DCUO

Apparently Superman’s death is going to be a drawn out affair in DCUO, as the second part of the event launched just last week (and one more is still to come!). Massively OP’s MJ already completed part 1, and now it is time to delve into part 2 of The Death of Superman. Join us live at 9:00 p.m. to see how well the Man of Steel fares in this episode.

Superman keeps on dying in DC Universe Online

I cannot the the only person who finds it humorously weird that up-and-coming heroes in DC Universe Online keep grabbing costume elements from famous superheroes and villains. You think that Batman and the Joker feel a little unnerved that so many people are running around wearing their clothes?

At least Superman isn’t saying anything, because he’s dead. Well, deader than he was when the first part of the Death of Superman update went out in the game. Now that the second part is here, players can grab the iconic Supes costume and try to replace the Man of Steel. Good luck with that!

This update throws players against the guy who killed Superman to see if they can do any better. Good luck with that, too. The Doomsday raid comes with new feats, items, a title, and the Superman 80th anniversary emblem.

DCUO plans July Teen Titans episode, August Augment system to replace R&D mods

DC Universe Online has its summer all mapped out, and it’s a doozy. Daybreak is leaping into the Teen Titans lore this July for a new episode called Judas Contract – just like the 1984 and 2016 comic.

“In JUDAS CONTRACT, the Teen Titans are evolving as a team and making upgrades to their home base: Titan’s Tower! Cyborg has joined the Justice League, so the Titans are looking for new recruits, and that means you, heroes. Villains will look to infiltrate the Titans at the request of the Fearsome Five, and both heroes and villains will have to do well enough in training to show the Titans they have the right stuff. Once on the island, things start to go wrong. But who is behind these events, and where are the Titans disappearing off to?”

DCUO Creative Director SJ Mueller does note that the story revolves around Terra but with a “modern DC roster” and “a few newer Titans characters” – Nightwing, Raven, Damian Wayne, Red Robin, and Jericho are mentioned. Expect a “large-scale” event with level-agnostic, singleplayer, and multiplayer adventures. Oh yeah, and plenty of loot.

DC Universe Online gets super-stylish in today’s GU83

What’s the point of being a superhero if you look like your mom still dresses you? Or worse, if you look like you still dress you? That’s why you need the professional help of a video game stylist.

Fortunately for all of the heroes in DC Universe Online, such assistance is coming with today’s Game Update 83. The second phase of Style Unlocking is now available, presumably arriving with even more outfits to unlock account-wide.

You’ll have plenty of time to read the patch notes, as DCUO is expected to be offline for up to eight hours while the update completes. Maybe you should use some of that time to post a picture or two of your superhero in the comments?

PlayStation 4 heads into the end of its life cycle, making console MMOs nervous

No console lives forever, although it seems like the more recent generations have enjoyed lengthy runs. Sony delivered some disconcerting news to fans this week as it said that the PlayStation 4, which debuted back in 2013, is now heading into the end of its life cycle as hardware sales decrease.

This doesn’t mean that the console is going to be abandoned any time soon, just that Sony is shifting its hardware priorities elsewhere. Software sales are still expected to continue strong for the time being, and the company reported that the online PlayStation Network now has 80 million users. Sony told The Wall Street Journal that the next iteration of the popular platform is at least three years off.

Global Chat: Dipping back into MMO underwater combat

Guild Wars 2’s recent renovation of underwater combat has brought back some interest to this oft-neglected sphere of gameplay. Inventory Full’s Bhagpuss used this occasion as an opportunity to examine the role of underwater combat in general and the changes to GW2 in specific.

“The undersea worlds of most MMOs weren’t quite so unforgiving but still they were shunned,” he notes. “Developers tended to avoid them too, other than blocking out something wet and watery in the most perfunctory manner possible. It was quite a surprise when Guild Wars 2 launched with a goodly amount to see and do below the surface, any number of bodies of water, from inland lakes to the open seas, offering much the same opportunity and inducement to explore as their counterparts on dry land.”

Once you towel off from that essay, join the MMO blogosphere as it looks at DC Universe Online, World of Warcraft, RIFT Prime, and more!
