Sony Online Entertainment’s anticipated DC Universe Online will be a blend of traditional MMO and first-person action console games.
Some of the details are revealed in the current issue of U.K.’s Edge magazine, and summarized by Eurogamer.
While you won’t be able to play Superman or Wonder Woman, you may fight alongside them — or against them — as you create your own superhero or supervillain. Metropolis and Gotham City will be the two large shared environments.
I’m not a gamer, but I found the most interesting tidbit to be this, from Executive Creative Director Jim Lee:
In the future, it’s possible we could see models, environments and costumes from the game turning up in other DC Comics properties, and there are plans for plot crossovers. “We can tie-in future DC tentpole events and translate the stories for the gaming world, and have them occur simultaneously,” said Lee. “The possibilities are numerous and very exciting.”
DC Universe Online is due out sometime next year.
