The San Diego Comic Book Convention is going on right now, and one of the bigger games that’s debuting there is DC Universe Online, an action MMO developed by Sony Online Entertainment, the same group that brought us the ultimately underwhelming Star Wars Galaxies. I read a rather lengthy preview of the game in this month’s Edge magazine, and SOE hired some comic book expert to make sure, bluntly, that the game doesn’t stink on ice.
In the game, you make your own superhero, then lollygag about Metropolis interacting with the proper superheroes and villains from the DC universe. Batman, Joker, Superman, all the guys.
The game doesn’t have a release date yet, but it’s coming out for the PS3 and PC.
