Posted on July 26, 2008, Chris Video Demo of DC Universe Online
Straight out of this year’s Comic-Con, PlayStation.Blog has a live video demonstration of Sony Online Entertainment’s upcoming superhero MMO, DC Universe Online. People are actually getting to go hands-on with the game at the event, so what you see in the video above will give you a look at some actual gameplay. It’ll certainly give you a better feel for the game than the debut trailer Stephany posted last week.
It’s difficult to look at the game and not feel like you’re watching City of Heroes with DC characters sprinkled in — which, for the most part, would be perfectly fine by me. SOE is emphasizing fewer instances and grinding, and more action. But why do I feel like the game will without a doubt be filled with quests like “Take out 10 bad guys” and “Collect 15 trash cans?”
I really hope they figure out a way around that, because that’s really what I usually find to be the thing that kills MMOs for me.
