DC Universe Online debuts this spring on Xbox One

DC Universe Online celebrates its 5th anniversary today on January 11th, and has some big news to commemorate the event.

New Legends01While the title started out owned by Sony Online Entertainment, SOE’s sale to Columbus Nova, an investment management firm, changed the studio’s name to Daybreak Game Company, with its focus on being a multiplatform game developer. Today, they announced via twitter that the Super Hero MMO ‘DC Universe Online’ will be coming to Xbox One in the spring.

Another core feature announced was that for the first time ever, PS4 and PC players will be able to beat up bad guys or take down do-gooders together with Cross-Play. This feature starts up on the week of January 25th. Currently it doesn’t look like Xbox One will share this Cross-Play feature, but with the title just premiering on the console, It’s a safe bet that it’ll be heavily populated none-the-less.

Players that log in once the title drops sometime in the spring should see regular updates ushering in new content all throughout 2016. The upcoming CW’s ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ TV show will see some content featured in the game to work alongside marketing the show.

Also, on its way this year is:

  • A new Superman story line.
  • A new Harley Quinn story line.
  • The finale of Amazon Fury.
  • A new power set is also coming down the pipe, literally, as Water Power will make its debut to the game.
  • A 4th Color Palette for adding more color to your character.
  • More style and gear options.
  • Better League recruitment tools.New Legends02
  • Anniversary rewards for players that log in before January 31st.

With 35 million characters having been created in the past 5 years with over 60% of its player base choosing the side of justice, it’s a safe bet that DC Universe Online will be a huge success on the Microsoft Platform when it releases this spring.

There currently isn’t an exact release date planned, or pricing; however, with the title currently being Free-to-Play with some micro-transactions, it’s safe to say that the Xbox One version should follow the same pricing model.
