DC Universe Online: Catwoman messes things up a bit in February expansion

Tuesday, 1st February 2011 19:02 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

SOE has pulled the curtains back on the free February update for DC Universe Online, and the expansion finds Catwoman messing things up a bit when she tries to rob Egyptian cat artifacts from the Gotham Museum.

According to various previews of the content, DCUO players will be able to assume Catwoman’s identity or go against her in PvP mode as well.

The update also comes with Valentine’s Day-related activities, thanks to the goddess Aphrodite showing her true colors across Metropolis, and a new eight-person raid instance for high-level players will be added as well with the Batcave.

SOE’s goal with the update, according to game director Chris Cao, was to provide something for everyone whether they were a high level player or still leveling their way up. It also provides new content for console players, who may only be into it on a casual sense, unlike the hardcore PC crowd.

“DCUO” is a rarity in the MMO world because you can play on a PC or on the PlayStation 3, and the two hardware platforms draw different audiences,” he said. “On a console, playtime is typically shorter, but people come back and play more often. So the game’s designed to be a lot of fun even in short bursts. The PS3 is competing with cable, with DVR, with Netflix, and you can’t hog the TV for 10 hours a day.”

You can get more details on the expansion as well as some new screens of it over on IGN or Kotaku, just to name a couple.

DC Universe Online was released last month.

    That’s quite a lot of content to add. I guess I’ll go set my sub up again. This might actually be worth it.

    @2 Well, with characters being on different servers that’ll never happen. They did that though so they could make the PS3 version and PC version different depending on how the players play the game. Which is good I guess.

    NGP Monster Hunter is what I want. I want it right now.
