DC Universe Online has officially launched on Nintendo Switch! Fans of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and many more can now unite as a team with their favorite DC characters. Daybreak Games invites players to explore the vast mythos of DC Comics in an MMO experience.
DC Universe Online Basics
DC Universe Online was first released on January 11, 2011, for PlayStation 3 and PC. Players dive into a universe where a future Lex Luthor informs the present-day heroes about an imminent attack from Brainiac. Luthor then releases special futuristic technology called Exobytes across the Earth. Each Exobyte contains the data of a metahuman who succumbed to Brainiac in the future and endows its recipient with powers and abilities as a result. Luthor implores Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman to find these new warriors and train them to be ready to fight against the invaders. Meanwhile, villains such as the present-day Lex Luthor, Joker, and Circe are also gathering these new metahumans to create their own armies for various purposes.
Firstly, players create their own character, choosing their look, allegiance, powers, mentor, fighting style, and movement method. New additions have been added in the game’s eight-year run so there are a lot of new characters you can make with different abilities. Choose to uphold justice with Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman or exploit the chaos with Lex Luthor, Joker, and Circe. DC Universe Online has regular updates, including seasonal events and optional in-game monetization.
DC Universe Online is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and now the Nintendo Switch. The title is free-to-play even if you do not have a Nintendo Switch Online subscription. As of this writing, the Switch version does not support cross-play with any other platforms. While the game requires 24.2 GB of memory and SD card to play, fans will love the expansive open-world adventure that Daybreak Games has created. Will you be downloading the game?
