DC Universe Online

Stephen Schleicher over at Major Spoilers has posted an article about what he's hearing from Comic Con about the DC Universe Online MMORPG coming out.

The articles and stories coming out of the San Diego Comic Con regarding the upcoming DC Universe Online MMO (Massive Multiplayer Online) Game, haven’t been very detailed, but here’s what we know so far…

* The game will use the Unreal 3 engine for physics based games. If you are in the path of a bus that another character has thrown, be prepared to get knocked down and suffer some damage.
* There will be accessible environments. If you have speed based powers, you may literally be able to run up the sides of buildings.
* The game will be simultaneously on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC systems...
* Players can work through a mentor like the Batman or The Joker (called Side Kick For Real), or they can strike out on their own with the Patrol (good) or Prowl (bad) PvP interaction.

Stephen lists more details that relate to the fact that the game is going to stay true to the DC Universe and will allow players to experience just about everything they would expect if they were actually in that world.

I get the feeling for that this is going to be nothing more then a DC licensed version of City of Heroes/Villains. I'm sure it will be very pretty from the images I've seen but will the gameplay be worth it? I've played many pretty games and some of which are MMO's that have let me down. I really hope this isn't one of them.

If you are hyped up about the game and what to know more you can add them to your buddy list on My Space and get exclusive info that will hit the web a few hours later.
