A world of wonder

Dimensional Ink Games and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced the launch of Wonderverse, the latest event and episode in the popular, free-to-play MMO DC Universe™ Online (DCUO).

For the first time in DC Universe Online, players will take up arms with the Council of Wonder Women -- Nubia, Flashpoint Wonder Woman, Red Son Wonder Woman, and more -- as their universes collapse. Together, they must face the Olympian Gods and the New Gods to repair the cracked Source Wall and restore order before it is too late.

Wonderverse introduces new daily and weekly Open World missions, raid-like world bosses, a brand-new Solo and Alert, as well as Normal and Elite versions of a new Raid. For complete details on all the new features, check out our community article, HERE.

The Wonderverse episode for DC Universe Online is now available for PlayStation® 4, Xbox™ One, PC and Nintendo Switch™. The episode is free to access for members or available for purchase in the in-game marketplace. For a limited time, special “Event” versions of all content for Wonderverse will also be available for free to all players, level 15 and above until the release of our next episode.

DC Universe Online getting 'Wonderverse' episode in Aug. 2020, 10th anniversary content teased

A wonderful world

Just announced, DC Universe Online's next content features a broken multiverse and the only heroes strong enough to heal it: each universe's Wonder Woman! The new episode WONDERVERSE will launch this August.

NEW EPISODE: WONDERVERSE

In WONDERVERSE, the Source Wall has cracked and the multiverse is collapsing. The Amazons awake to find a Themyscira dimensionally-patchworked as their universes merge. The Sphere of the Gods is in ruins, and so the Greek Gods and the New Gods - in fact, all gods - desperately seek fragments of the Source Wall to reclaim their power.

However, if the multiverse is to survive, our Diana - our Wonder Woman - knows the only chance is to collect those fragments to repair the Source Wall. She must face the gods and overcome their greed, and she knows she cannot do it alone. Answering her call are the players, heroes and villains alike recognizing the severity of the situation, and...the Wonder Women of the other collapsing universes!

With the multiverse at stake, will the Council of Wonder Women and players be enough to defeat the gods and repair the Source Wall? Or does another power lurk in the background with other, more sinister plans?

SJ'S TAKE: "What’s my favorite thing about this episode? Without a doubt, the opportunity to create the concept of the Wonderverse! Nothing like it’s ever been done before in DC’s comics and it fits in perfectly in DCUO. We had the councils of Lex Luthor and Batman – why not Wonder Woman? Who else is better at leading us into the battle of our lives?" - SJ Mueller, DC Universe Online Creative Director

THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT WONDERVERSE:

Wonderverse will be a large-scale episode, with level-agnostic event versions of content available to all players for a limited time.
The episode will feature new and returning adversaries, from the Greek Gods (including Zeus, Hera, and Poseidon) to the New Gods (including Grail, Darkseid, and Orion) and beyond.
The episode will also feature Wonder Women from five different universes.
The storyline will include adventures set in familiar and remote locales, including a massive open-world, universe-merging Themyscira.
The episode will launch new player rewards, including new gear, styles, artifacts, base items, and feats.
EPISODE 38: WONDERVERSE will launch this August on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

Along with that announcement, we have a tease of some anniversary content coming too. DC Universe Online will be celebrating 10 years in the near future, and in an interview with ComicBook.com, Creative Director SJ Mueller makes it sound like something special is in the works.

...But it is going to be something special, because we're celebrating 10 years of this level of popularity, success, and just a fun game that's free to play. Right now, we're running this thing called "Open Episodes", which means like a lot of our premium content is available to anyone at no cost. That's another thing we're doing during the pandemic, so that players don't feel like, "I don't know what to do. I don't know what to pay". Just keep playing. We just want you to keep playing, and have something there for you.

DC Universe Online dev talks about making a more lighthearted episode with Birds of Prey, teases 10th anniversary celebration

A bit more fun, and things to come

A new Birds of Prey episode is now available for DC Universe Online, and it's quite different from the latest episode that was released. In an interview with Comicbook.com, dev SJ Mueller talks about the change in tone between the last episode and this one.

What I love most about this episode is it's kind of a departure from the darker Metal storyline that we did last year, which was really cool and really heavy metal, and had a lot of crazy stuff in it, but it was pretty dark. And this episode by design was meant to be a little bit more fun, a little more lighthearted. I mean you got Harley Quinn as a headline, Black Canary, Poison Ivy. These are kind of more just exciting characters. Huntress can get a little dark, but it seemed like it just worked out. Like you were saying, we're in a weird place right now in the world. And when we announced Birds of Prey and put it up on our test server, our players were so excited about how it was funny. And it made them feel good to get online, and just have a lighthearted adventure. I mean the entire universe is at stake, but we're having fun while saving the universe.

While DC Universe Online is still fairly new to Switch owners, the game has been around nearly 10 years now. Can we expect some sort of major celebration for the game's 10 year milestone?

Oh, I can't tease yet, but I definitely think that year 10 is going to be an incredible year for the game, and we are not slowing down whatsoever. And me and one of our new lead producers have several features on our mind that we think really could improve both the day-to-day life of the game, and just kind of turn it on its head and make it a little more modernized. But there's no specifics or timeline yet that we can talk about, but I'm very excited for the future of DCUO.

DC Universe Online devs 'very pleased' with critical reception to the Switch version, say player fanbase has been 'really terrific'

Praise all around

DC Universe Online coming to Switch was a pretty big shock. No one thought the game would head to Nintendo's platform, especially so long after the initial launch. How did all of it play out for the team behind the game? DualShockers talked to Daybreak and Executive Producer Jack Emmert.

Daybreak: “We’re very pleased with the critical reception of the game. Considering how good it looks on the Switch, I feel that the game was practically made for the Switch! And the fan base has been really terrific on there, too. Tons of folks are saying ‘it’s great to finally have a real MMO on the Switch.'”

Jack Emmert: “It’s a fantastic platform that reaches a unique audience. What’s not to like?”

Dedicated studio formed to handle DC Universe Online going forward

Dimensional Ink Games takes the reigns

Daybreak Game Company, formerly known as Sony Online Entertainment, has been handling working on PlanetSide, DC Universe Online and EverQuest for years now. Daybreak feels that these franchises could be better served by having dedicated teams working on all of them, instead of keeping things how they are now. That's why the company has announced their “franchise first initiative,” which gives a dedicated studio to each game.

When it comes to DC Universe Online, Dimensional Ink Games will be taking the lead on the title going forward. The studio is lead by Jack Emmert, and they have plenty of plans for the title going forward. We just have to sit back and see what comes rolling in!

DC Universe Online "Season's Greedings" event live, Metal Part II DLC coming Dec. 5th, 2019

Heavy metal, baby!

Things are moving and shaking in DC Universe Online this week. First up, the Season's Greedings 2019 event is now live. Check out full details on this event below.

Larfleeze is back! Find and recover the stolen gifts in Metropolis and Gotham City before it’s too late! Look for “Yuletide Fear” (Villains) or “Winter Plunderland” (Heroes) in your Mission Journal. Or alternatively you can now use the Warp Menu to head directly to the Watchtower or Hall of Doom by selecting Season’s Greedings: Hal Jordan (Hero) or Season’s Greedings: Sinestro (Villain). There are also wondrous new feats to be found, along with style items and accessories to be earned!

New Feats

Do the Light Thing
Spikes Spikes Baby
Up All Light

Larfleeze’s greed can’t be satisfied so he is taking advantage of a heated battle between the Green Lanterns and the Sinestro Corps. Look for “Ring in the Holidays” in your Mission Journal. Players must complete “Yuletide Fear” or “Winter Plunderland” and “Season’s Greedings” in order to receive the “Ring in the Holidays” Daily Mission. Each day of the event, look for “Season’s Greedings” and “Ring in the Holidays” in your Mission Journal to complete the mission and earn Holly Leaves.

Don’t forget to shop at Skeets’ Workshop to get the latest winter clothing, holiday goodies, and festive base items!

On top of that, Metal Part II DLC is set to launch tomorrow, bringing a whole new wave of content to enjoy. In a Comicbook.com interview, creative director SJ Mueller talked about what fans can expect from Metal Part II.

Metal Part II is going to take DC fans to places they'd never believe. It's exciting enough to go to the planet Thanagar, home of the Hawks, but they'll also dive deep into the belly of the Dark Multiverse at the Forge of Worlds. But before that, they'll explore the depths of Batman's mind and learn things about him no one ever knew.

...I think what DC comic fans will be most excited to see are "The Dark Knights" - alternate EVIL versions of Batman from across the Dark Multiverse. We've got the return of The Batman Who Laughs, The Merciless, and The Red Death and the first appearances of The Dawnbreaker and one of my personal favorites, The Drowned - a gender-swapped version of Batman crossed with Aquaman!
