The MMO DC Universe Online will be greatly improved in time for the PS4 launch, with both graphics and gameplay getting upgraded.
In a blog post over at the official DC Universe Online website executive producer Larry Liberty explained the updates:
“Most notably, the level of detail on textures will be increased throughout the game on PC and PlayStation 4, and that’s perhaps nowhere more obvious than when observing the Earth from the Watchtower.
“We have also taken the opportunity to rebuild areas like Centennial Park in Metropolis and Robinson Park in Gotham City so that the visuals there better match the story being told. And, we have corrected and improved hundreds of details in the environmental geometry throughout the game to bring a better, seamless experience to all players, and these changes will be in effect on all platforms, including the PlayStation 3.”
With an MMO it is always important to keep updating the game to keep it feeling fresh and new. When a game requires so much playtime; constant updates are needed otherwise it gets boring pretty quickly. Therefore it is great to hear the the PS4 and PC will be getting more detailed textures and that the PS3 is also getting the newly rebuilt areas as well.
Let me know in the comments if you play DC Universe Online, I think it looks interesting and I’ve always been tempted to give it a go. Should I finally jump in when it is released on the PS4? Shout at me below if I should!
