To quote: To all of you who have been participating in our DC Universe Online PS3 Beta, we'd like to welcome you and thank you!
We've been listening closely to your feedback and we've heard a few of you are running into some technical issues. We want you to know your feedback is valuable and we are implementing fixes as quickly as possible. In the next patch many issues will be resolved.
Some of the specific issues that we are fixing include numerous changes to improve the user interface, in particular text readability. In addition, we want to make it easier for you to play with your friends! What is an online game without playing with friends?
Social enhancements will make it easier to communicate, play and group with others. Improvements to chat input, frequently used phrases menu, and the ability to use emotes will further convey your personality and mood to the world.
There are also several adjustments in process that will improve instruction and hint messages within the UI. Plus, we are adding a way for you...
Slam Bolt Scrappers is a genuine, bona-fide genre-twisting mash-up of brawling and building where one to four players clash in an all-out brawl while simultaneously creating weapon packed towers that fight alongside them.
Gameplay centers on assembling colored blocks into powerful weaponized turrets while defending against enemy attacks and mobbing creeps. The game presents a deep battle mode with tons of replayability and a fast and frantic co-op campaign filled with deviously charming baddies, epic bosses, and fun, cartoony levels.
Duke it out and crush your enemies in the competitive battle mode by building massive towers of weapons...Or work together as a team to protect Slam Bolt City against hordes...
