OP  11/03/13 5:34:46 PM#1

In the next couple of weeks, big changes will come to the world with the launch of the Playstation 4. DC Universe Online players will also benefit from the console's launch as PS4 players will flood into the game. We caught up with Jens Andersen to talk about what's new with the game, the PS4 launch and what PS3 players can expect as well. Read on!

The biggest thing that Jens stressed was the team’s willingness to work on the PS4 launch and how much Sony supported them in the effort. There are always high expectations for the next generation games on the new consoles and DC Universe was able to meet those criteria. Even minor elements like the new controller were adapted and added to make for a better experience. Jens explained that once you get out of the tutorial there are two massive cities you have to explore. The team was able to make the entire world work within the new platform. Jens also stressed that you do not need a PlayStation Plus account to play.

Why would "PS4 players will flood into the game"?  I would bet a majority of the PS4 buyers already own a PS3 and have already made a decision about this game.  The only people who might actually come "flooding in" are new PS buyers who dont own a PS3 and dont play games on or own a  computer.  Everyone else who would be interested would have already tried this game.  Could you elaborate on your use of the phrase "flood into the game" and maybe provide some basis for that statement?

maybe due to the lack of games available on PS4 release?

Surge would be the proper term. I played on PC and liked it. I do not own a PS3,  I will be playing on PS4. I am actually looking forward to it.

do any of our accounts from pc or ps3 carry over or will it be a "clean slate"?

I see you changed the line.  Thank you for removing the marketing speak.

PC is seperate

 

PS3 and PS4 play on same servers

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/dcuo-on-ps4-will-allow-cross-play-with-ps3/1100-6415895/

PlayStation 4 will allow cross-platform play with PlayStation 3. DCUO senior creative director Jens Andersen said during a phone interview with GameSpot this morning, "As a PS4 launch title, cross-compatibility, getting all of our console players on the same server, is a major priority."

"We realize not everyone will be upgrading to a PS4," Andersen says, "but for players that do, we want them to be able to maintain the progress of their characters and still play with all of their friends."

Cheers Nadia.

 

Think I'll give this game another shot on the PS4.

Just for reference, we also said the same thing about cross-server play.  :)

So what does the PS4 do for DC Universe Online? On a strategic level the game now can grow in the console space. Jens is really happy with the new horizons for the consoles and DC will be part of it right from the beginning. That being said he stressed the point to players that they will continue to develop the game for the PS3. They plan to fully support the PS3 and those players will share the servers with the PS4 players. They were happy to keep all the players on the same servers. Jens said the new generation of consoles brings some power to the table. Because DCUO was developed for the PC originally, it fell right in line with the PS4. The PS4 is akin to the PC in a lot of ways and gave the developers an advantage.

This game has a soft spot in my heart.. I really like playing it and try to revisit it every once in awhile.  Really happy to see it on the PS4,  but if Sony planned to give it any future,  they kind of had to.    Looking forward to see where they go from here.

It's an MMO for consoles, of course they should be pushing it for the PS4.  Especially at launch, when fewer titles will be available, just by the nature of things.  The PC keyboard and mouse implementation was pathetic, making this a controller only game, unless your tolerance for bad UI was very high.

 

Is Superman still an Ice Tanker?

If you are holding out for the perfect game, the only game you play will be the waiting one.

I own a gaming pc and plan to play this on the ps4.  I have other mates in the same boat who plan to as well.  We may not be a flood, but I doubt we are the only ones.

I get why ps2 is going with separate servers as the ps4 guys will have a big disadvantage vs mice, joysticks and xp'd up players, but I don't get why dcuo needs to separate players.

I can't see how a 3 year old game that flopped when it released, probably holding the record for fastest MMO to shift from p2p to f2p, is going to do any better just because its on a new console.  Failed MMOs don't get second chances at success.

Is a man not entitled to the herp of his derp?

Remember, I live in a world where juggalos and yugioh players are real things.

Most would say that FF14 was a failure...but ARR is actually pretty fun

It will do very little for this game - PS4s are going to be few and far between for at least a couple of more years, as there's a TON of PS3s out there that will gradually shift over to PS4 over time. 

The idea that the vast majority of PS3 owners will get a PS4 immediately is simply false.

There are 77 million PS3s in the world - Sony is hoping (best case scenario) to sell 5 million PS4s in 2013 - that's not even 6.5% of the total PS3 market.

Think about it.

Well dang, I was hoping that I could use my PC account/characters on ps4 servers.

Schucks!

i mostly played DCUO on PC. I Switched to the PS3 version because it has a lot more people (according to every article that talks about it) but i had to go back to the PC version because the PS3 version is way to slow loading and it feels and fps feel way below 30fps. I'll definitely give the PS4 a try to see how smooth it is. But im not buying the same DLCs again so ill probably just stay on PC anyway.

I really enjoyed this game on PC, but since I dont have the All-Access Pass anymore Ive been downgraded to a Silver player, which with the silly money cap in place that should be unlockable by buying the unlock in the store. so I stopped playing.. Other than it coming to PS4 did they upgrade the graphic engine or something for the PS4 release?

APB and The Old Republic hold the records for the fast pay to play to f2p shift.
