Speaking to USA Today, DC Universe Online artist Jim Lee said that the differentiator between his MMO and its competitors is all in the combat.
To me, a lot of MMOs are fairly, I wouldn’t say static, but it’s the kind of thing where you start, push ‘attack,’ and get a cup of coffee, come back and say, ‘I won,'” he said.
“In DC Universe, you are constantly moving and actually doing a lot more dogfight-type battles, running along on the ground and flying and going around buildings and blasting people. It’s chaotic, but it’s organized and it’s very, very dynamic.
“To me, that is kind of how superheroes fight. It’s not like they stand there and trade blows. The cities are their playgrounds, and they demolish them.”
The game’s out on PS3 and PC next year. More through the link.
