'DC Universe Online' (ALL) Celebrates 10th Anniversary With In-Game Events, Bonuses, Rewards and More

by Rainier on Jan. 12, 2021 @ 12:00 a.m. PST

Dimensional Ink has built a world where you feel like you've stepped into the DC Universe and become the ultimate super-hero (or villain) along side of Superman, Batman, or Ambush Bug.

Lex Luthor has traveled back through time with news of a dire future: While the heroes and villains spent years battling amongst themselves, Brainiac has been feeding on their powers, building strength to return to Earth and destroy humanity. To change the future, Lex has come back to set off a device that bestows super powers to thousands of every-day citizens and give humanity a fighting chance. Can Brainiac be stopped, or is this another nefarious Lex Luthor plot?

As a traditional action-based MMO that combines fast-paced, twitch-based combat with an interactive physics system to deliver a new and unique gameplay experience, DC Universe Online brings the DC Universe to life, allowing players to create their own superheroes - or villains - and join forces with their favorite DC Comics characters to aid in saving – or destroying – the universe. 

DCUO offers a dramatic online setting where players can enter the DC Universe and battle alongside or against their favorite DC Comics heroes and villains including such icons as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and The Joker, as well as many other fan favorites such as Green Lantern, The Flash, Catwoman and Martian Manhunter. The action and drama will play out in such well-known locations as Gotham City and Metropolis among others.

DC Universe Online was created in the artistic vision of legendary comic book artist Jim Lee, and set within a world created by famous DC writers including Geoff Johns and Marv Wolfman.

Another big year has come and gone. We started the year with the best-team-ever in Birds of Prey, took on bigger battles than ever before in Wonderverse, and blasted into the 31st Century with Long Live The Legion.

From now through the end of January, players can commemorate this incredible milestone with over $50 in free player gifts including a free Character Advance to CR290. They will also receive a gear suit with the new Restored Shim'Tar Regalia style, the Paradox Gazer combat pet, a fireworks trinket and aura, and two new 10th anniversary emblems.

“I’m thrilled to be part of the team and celebrate this incredible milestone for DC Universe Online,” said Jack Emmert, CEO of Dimensional Ink. “After reading DC comic books for 45 years, it’s a dream come true to be able to play in DC’s rich multiverse. I can’t wait to see what the next ten years will bring!”

As a bonus and special thank you, members will also receive a Member Appreciation Gift Box, which includes the following items:

  • The Anti-Matter Neon Chroma Pack
  • Enhanced Shim’Tar Regalia style
  • Nth Metal totaling 220,000 Artifact XP
  • 1 Artifact Cache (your choice of Artifact)
  • 1 set of Artifact Catalysts
  • 1 Nth Metal Detector
  • 4 Seals of Preservation

To claim your free Member Appreciation Gift, you must be a member and then log in between now and January 31, 2021. Players can upgrade to membership and then log in to receive the Member Appreciation Gift. One per account. Items are account bound.

Last week on January 7, the team kicked off the 10th anniversary with the Attack of the Anti-Monitor 10th Anniversary Event! Players can explore an updated Metropolis Anti-Matter Invasion Zone and take on a new Event Raid and Elite Raid: Speed Force Flux. New 10th anniversary rewards and classic content from previous years will also return, making this the biggest celebratory year for DCUO yet.

DCUO allows players to channel their inner hero or villain by creating a unique, customizable character from a wide selection of superpowers, movement modes, weapons, and over 2,000 styles. Players fight alongside DC’s iconic Super Heroes and Super-Villains, including Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, and The Joker, in immersive, physics-based action combat.

DC Universe Online is now available for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC.
