For the fifth anniversary of DC Universe Online, Daybreak Games, has announced it is bringing the popular MMORPG to Xbox One.
This is pretty exciting news for gamers who, until now, have only been able to play the game on PC or on the PlayStation. It makes sense of course, Daybreak Games is a Sony company, and Sony would certainly love to keep its games on its own platform. However, with Xbox One continuing to climb in sales, bringing the Free to Play (with a lot of purchased upgrades) to another platform to maximize monies is the smart move.
The move to Xbox One will happen this Spring, which means we could see it anytime between March and June. Until then, DC Universe Online will see even more updates to the game play including Episode 21: Legends of Tomorrow, a new Superman storyline featuring Zod, Ursa, Non, and Lois Lane, the finale of Halls of Power, a storyline centered around Harley Quinn, and the finale of Amazon Fury.
Our next powerset is Water, featuring Hydrokinetics (Hard Water Constructs, inspired by characters like Aqualad) and Tide-Calling (Waterbending, inspired by characters like Mera).
The one thing that has vexed players since launch, is players on PC couldn’t team up and play with players on PlayStation. Daybreak Games is changing that, and for the first time, you’ll be able to play with your PC loving friend across the street. Interestingly, there is no mention of cross play between Xbox One, PC and PlayStation. If the game company can make cross play across all systems, growth would skyrocket, especially with the new League recruitment tools that are coming to the system.
