DC Universe Online Getting a Heroic Update Ahead of the PS4 Launch

Posted by Orla Madden

Superman has been working hard behind the scenes

In the run up to the PlayStation 4's release next month, DC Universe Online is scheduled to receive an almighty update which is said to improve the game for all players on all platforms, including fans of the PS3 version of the free-to-play title.

Dubbed Game Update 31, it's the "biggest technical update" that the release has ever seen according to executive producer Larry Liberty. "In Game Update 31, we have made a combination of art upgrades that, when taken together, offer a significantly improved visual experience," he explained. "Most notably, the level of detail on textures will be increased throughout the game on the PC and PS4, and that’s perhaps nowhere more obvious than when observing the Earth from the Watchtower."

Fans of the action title will notice significant changes to areas such as Centennial Park in Metropolis and Robinson Park in Gotham City, as the visuals have been given a slight make-over. Furthermore, improvements have been made to the game's main environments, providing a more seamless experience for the player. Lastly, a speck of polish has been applied to the core levelling system, with the aim of luring newcomers to the popular MMO.

The update will crash land on the PS3 in early November, but a specific date has yet to be decided. Sadly, the PS4 version of DC Universe Online won't be available for the console's release, but you can expect it to arrive during the black box's launch window.

Update: Sony Online Entertainment has reached out to inform us that it hasn't specified a release window for the PS4 version of DC Universe Online just yet. We're informed that firm details are forthcoming.

Looking forward to seeing the Ps4 improvements. Enjoyed playing on Ps3 a while ago so it'd give me a reason to go back at least

what i got out of this article is that DCU on PS4 has been delayed!!
ANOTHER delay! What gives???
I really wish developers would stop giving launch dates that everyone looks forward to, only to disappoint people!
This was going to be a Day 1 download for me. I don't have a PC or PS3, so i haven't played DCU yet but i've really wanted to!
First Watch_Dogs, which was my preorder bundle game, then DriveClub, now DCU? God damn it...

Well at least it will be played as it was meant to be. In it's conception high textures where meant to be used and then subbed out to accommodate old PC and later the PS3.

@drumsandperc92 Clam down, I played it on launch day way back when. It's not going to kill you. Also there are so many other games to play before then.

I find it difficult to believe that it's still going to be honest. I remember enjoying the beta a few years ago and I'll probably hop back into it on PS4, but man, is anyone still playing this?

I remember being disappointed in this game when it first released on the PC. I may hop back into it when it comes out on PS4 just to see what's changed...if anything. For the most part though, I have major MMO burnout at the moment.
