Chris Cao Video Interview

Chris Cao Video Interview - DC Universe Online -

DCUO Source, a fansite for DC Universe Online, recently visited SOE Austin for a studio tour and got a chance to sit down for a four-part interview series with DCUO Creative Director Chris Cao. In the interview, Chris Cao answers a number of questions straight from the DCUO Source community.

In the interview Chris discusses the role of feedback in the game's development, including the process for reviewing it and implementing changes made due to feedback in the game.

Another topic that was brought up is the possibility for hero or villain exclusive costume pieces, as it has been mentioned previously that there would be origin restricted costume pieces in the game. Chris didn't feel the former was appropriate, but got very much behind their idea for origin restricted pieces. Players will have a large array of general costume pieces to choose from, but the game will also reward players with costume pieces fitting of their specific origin. The idea behind this is to help differentiate players from one another.

Also, a question on everyone's minds, especially those who have played Batman: Arkham Asylum: Will Kevin Conroy voice Batman in DCUO? To that, Chris Cao was pretty coy and only answered that the team is really trying to leverage the DC Universe license in the best way possible.

Finally, Cao was asked about the role of secret identities., And again, like the Kevin Conroy question, he wasn't really able to answer, for fear of being sniped by hitmen hired by the marketing folks. Chris would only say that secret identities would serve an important role and that fans should "be prepared."
