Get ready, superhero enthusiasts! DC Universe Online, the immersive online gaming world, is set to make its debut on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X this holiday season. With this exciting announcement from developer Dimensional Ink Games, players are in for an even more exhilarating gaming experience.
This beloved free-to-play MMO is gearing up for an upgrade as it leaps onto the next-gen consoles. The team at Dimensional Ink Games is hard at work, not only ensuring that DC Universe Online maintains its native form on both platforms but also implementing gameplay enhancements and quality of life improvements.
Over the next few months, you can expect to see these enhancements roll out prior to the official release on the current-gen consoles. Additional improvements are slated for next year as well, promising an evolving and dynamic adventure.
Uninterrupted Connection and Progression
An important piece of news for loyal DC Universe Online fans: regardless of which version you choose to play, the servers, characters, and friendships you’ve built will remain unchanged. The development team assures that all your purchases and achievements will carry over seamlessly if you opt to upgrade.
Your journey continues without any disruption; simply log in with your existing PSN or Xbox account once you’ve downloaded the game on your chosen console.
While the announcement highlights the PS5 and Xbox Series X, there’s no mention of the Xbox Series S. This has led to questions about whether the upgrade will be available solely for the Xbox Series X. To clarify this point, IGN has reached out for additional information from Dimensional Ink Games.
DC Universe Online originally burst onto the scene in January 2011, captivating players on PC and PlayStation 3. The adventure continued with releases on PlayStation 4 in November 2013, Xbox One in April 2016, and Nintendo Switch in August 2019.
Worth noting, the Xbox One version is already compatible with Xbox Series X and S through backward compatibility, and similarly, the PS4 version can be played on the PS5.
