DC Universe Online players, brace yourselves for an exciting new year of game updates and developments. The team at Dimensional Ink has released their January 2023 Development Update, giving players a glimpse into what they can expect in the coming months.
The most highly-anticipated update is the launch of Episode 45, titled “Shock to the System.” The episode will take players to the heart of the Milestone universe in Dakota City to investigate the disappearances of heroes and villains. Players can expect open world missions, world bosses, and new player rewards such as gear and styles. The episode will feature characters such as Static, Ebon, Rocket, and DeSaad and will be written by acclaimed comic book writer Leon Chills. “Shock to the System” is set to launch in spring 2023 on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
In addition, players can look forward to the annual Attack of the Anti-Monitor event, as well as new rewards in the Love Conquers All and Mister Mxyzptlk’s Mischief seasonal events. A new ally, artifact, and Doctor Fate’s Daily Rewards are also expected to be released in the coming months.
The team is also announced a new emotes system, allowing players to collect new emotes and animations to better express themselves in the game. More details on this feature will be shared in the coming months. The team is also working on next-gen console releases for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, due later this year.
Looking ahead, players can expect more episodes, allies, and artifacts in the future, including the launch of Episode 46 in the summer and Episode 47 in the fall. As always, plans are subject to change and players are encouraged to stay updated on the latest news and developments.
