NYCC '09/DCU Online Previews (UPDATED)

Posted by Bob Tilley Saturday, 7 February 2009


Some cool stuff is coming out already regarding DC Universe Online, the eagerly anticipated MMO from Sony Online Entertainment.

First off is the announcement that was leaked a few weeks ago of DC "Crisis on Infinite Earth", writer Marv Wolfman will be joining the creative team for the game.


Wizard caught up with him briefly, click here to read more.

Next Game Trailer.com have some exclusive game clips for the game, showing some walk through.








This evening is the DCU: Online panel with Jim Lee and Sony Online developers, who will be hosting a panel for fans to show off the latest from DC Universe!

IGN.com also have a cool turn-around model of Killer Croc, but the video wouldn't embed... click here to see it.

DCU: Online myspace has also released a video and design images today.

NYCC: DCU Online Panel:

Here are some of the fantastic annoucements coming up in the game...
Jim Lee asked if he could talk about “factions” in the game, and was allowed. Organizations like LexCorp and Star Labs can hire your character, and you will be able to associate with them. The Green and Purple shown on the concept art for LexCorp’s faction is a line-wide color scheme.

He mentioned that Zatanna HAD to have the fishnets and the coat, for example, to much applause. Aquaman and Green Arrow were officially mentioned for the first time as well.

Johns got to talk about the game next. His general position is in creating a story environment that includes you, the person, being the secret identity of your in-game character. He’s “very happy, very excited to work with Marv Wolfman on this, too.”

Wolfman took Johns’s overview, and said he was blown away. The conceptualization of the DCU had to include 75 years of history and figure out who “certain types of characters belong with” and create a great story out of it was a daunting task. He said right away, “thank God I didn’t have to come up with the base story! It’s really, really good.” He’s excited to build off that foundation.

A new video showing off some STAR Labs faction characters and some characters they’ve created showed in the background as the Q&A session continued. Hawkman, Wonder Woman, John Stewart, and Green Arrow (who has a notable design that drew “aahs” and whispers from the audience) were all shown in the new trailer.

The character creation is so deep, Andersen said you won’t see anyone that looks like you. You can also add items or change your costume throughout the game as you unlock and find new things. Batman has a bunch of different suits, but always looks like Batman, so you’ll be able to have your own signature features that stay even as you customize into something new.
