flexing your superpowers has just gotten a lot easier

ProSieben, the European operator of DC Universe Online, has announced that game update 31 will be a huge one that will increase the graphical capability of the game and bring it in line with the PS4 version when it launches in the console’s launch window.

When Game Update 31 launches it will involve “a sweeping, game-wide graphical update” and a “remastering” of the levelling mechanic, that’s according to executive producer Larry Liberty.

Liberty went on to say that: “Most notably, the level of detail on textures will be increased throughout the game on PC and PlayStation 4, and that’s perhaps nowhere more obvious than when observing the Earth from the Watchtower.

“We have also taken the opportunity to rebuild areas like Centennial Park in Metropolis and Robinson Park in Gotham City so that the visuals there better match the story being told. And we have corrected and improved hundreds of details in the environmental geometry throughout the game to bring a better, seamless experience to all players, and these changes will be in effect on all platforms, including the PlayStation 3.”

With these changes it means that if you are a first-time player of the game on PS4 or PC you’ll find it much easier to get to level 30 than it use to be.

The developers have also said that you will get much more useful gadgets to use and that the flow of the game will be much better than before.

It’s unknown at the moment when Game Update 31 will drop but it will be out before the game hits the PS4.

Oh and one more thing, below is a trailer showing how the locations will look after the new update drops.
