There's a lot to like in this new pack: three Duos, an Alert, two Raids, new gear and rewards and an incredible new power set - [Register or Login to view links] - that lets you deal damage or play the Tank role in an exciting new way.

My personal favorite new Raid is set in [Register or Login to view links], the ancestral home of Wonder Woman. Our team of talented artists did an amazing job crafting this beautiful new zone, and the design team went above and beyond in creating a cooperative combat experience that is fun, challenging and rewarding.

You and your friends will need to use all of your skill and a lot of strategy in order to conquer this Raid and take down Brainiac's Avatar of Magic. The Battle for Earth culminates with a major showdown against Braniac, and sets the stage for a new chapter in the game's ongoing narrative....
 

DC Universe Online Offers New PS3 Characters and Holiday Items

50°
153w ago - Sony Online Entertainment Executive Director of Development Lorin Jameson announced today news of new PS3 characters and holiday items arriving to fans in DC Universe Online.

To quote: Hope you're enjoying the most wonderful time of the year - the holiday gaming season!

One of the chief perks of a massively multiplayer online game is that the developers have a lot of freedom to make changes to the world, including creating special events throughout the year.

In DC Universe Online, we've just begun our new holiday-themed event Season's Greedings, which gives players fun new things to do set in a festive new look. As you make your way around Gotham City and Metropolis, you'll see that both are decked out in celebration of the season. But that's only the beginning!

All players are able to take part in a fun Holiday event starring our newest DCUO character, Larfleeze, the leader of the Orange Lantern Corps. Orange Lanterns? Yes, the Orange Lanterns, much like the Sinestro Corps or the Red Lanterns, are rivals of the Green Lanterns and are powered by the orange light of avarice, aka "greed."

Being a greedy little guy, it makes sense that Larfleeze wants all of the holiday presents for himself. As the player, it's up to you to track down the stolen presents, battle...

155w ago - Sony Online Entertainment Executive Director of Development Lorin Jameson has announced that the new DC Universe Online PS3 DLC Pack Lightning Strikes hits PSN today.

To quote: Today we're celebrating not only the launch of our second DLC Pack, Lightning Strikes, but also the amazing success that we've had since making the Free-to-Play transition just over a month ago.

Bottom line, there are a whole lot more of you out there playing DCUO. And apparently you're having a good time, because most of you - more than 85%, in fact - are returning again and again for adventures in Gotham City and Metropolis.

You may have seen a few weeks ago when we announced that more than one million new players had jumped in to DCUO since the launch of Free-to-Play. That number is definitely larger now, and growing by roughly 6% each day. We love seeing all of the new heroes and villains in game, and hope you and your friends keep coming back to experience the great new adventures we have planned for the coming year.

But enough bragging! You probably want to know what's going on with the new DLC, which hits PlayStation Store tomorrow. Lightning Strikes has something fun for players of all levels. You can amp up with the new Electricity power set, which offers supercharged new ways to heal yourself...

160w ago - Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) Executive Director of Development Lorin Jameson has shared details today on DC Online Universe, which he states is now free to play your way on PS3!

To quote: Remember back in September when we announced that DC Universe Online was going to be Free-To-Play? Well, it's here!

Starting today you can download DCUO from the PlayStation Store for free, and play all you want with no monthly fee required. Experience the game play features that have gotten players excited about DCUO since it launched, including the intense, fast-action brawler style combat system that makes it feel more like an action game than a massive online game.

Now, you can see for yourself how DCUO offers the best of both worlds. Fight, fly, speed, battle with friends, pummel your enemies, explore the amazing locales of the DC Universe, hobnob with Wonder Woman... all for free!

We're really excited about this transition because you all have been asking us to make this change, and now we've done it - we're making DCUO accessible to so many more players.

We heard all of you out there who told us at conventions, on Facebook and elsewhere that you'd love to jump in to the game, if only it didn't have that pesky monthly fee. Well, now's your chance. With our three...
 

CCP Games on Scaling the Universe in Dust 514 for PlayStation 3

161w ago - Today Server Architect Lin Luo at CCP Games has shared details on scaling the universe in the upcoming title Dust 514 for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system which is slated for release in Spring 2012.

To quote: I am a Server Architect on DUST 514 and, in this devblog, I would like to cover at a high level some of the online technical aspects of [Register or Login to view links], including the challenges we have met and the approaches we have taken in handling them.

As a server architect on the project, I am responsible for integrating the DUST FPS multiplayer battles into the EVE universe, as well as optimizing the DUST battle servers to perform even better. Unlike normal FPS multiplayer games, DUST 514 has heavy MMO elements.

And unlike normal MMO FPS games, DUST has heavy interaction with one of the most successful MMO space games - EVE Online! This imposes challenges on what technologies we should use in order to have this level of interaction with EVE, while keeping FPS gameplay as smooth as possible.

While continuing to rely on the Unreal 3 engine for the FPS multiplayer gameplay for DUST, the interaction with the rest of the EVE universe should naturally take advantage of utilizing some existing EVE online technologies. Think about a simplified...
