Sony Online Entertainment is planning a significant upgrade to DC Universe Online in preparation for the launch of PS4 next month.
‘Game Update 31’ will offer “a sweeping, game-wide graphical upgrade, a massive design effort to polish and re-master the core levelling game, and a host of technical work that prepares DCUO’s underlying technology not only for launch on a next generation gaming console, but for a long future on it as well”.
Textures will receive a notable boost on both PS4 and PC while in-game areas such as Centennial Park in Metropolis and Robinson Park in Gotham City have been completely rebuilt.
The update will roll out first on PC and PS3 at the beginning of next month while the PS4 version is expected to arrive “within the console’s launch window”.
“It’s been a lot of hard work in a short amount of time, but we’re thrilled to be one of the first free-to-play MMOs on this next generation gaming console,” the game’s executive producer Larry Liberty said.
