Sony Online Entertainment’s long-awaited superhero MMO finally launched in EU territories on Friday, and according to big boss John Smedley, there has been a surprising uptake:
Adding more servers in the US and the EU. Way more people came to play in the EU than we expected. And we expected a lot!
Whether the additional servers are for the PlayStation 3 or PC version of the game isn’t hinted at. It’s probably both; especially the former, as both of the PS3’s EU servers are classed as having “High” population counts already.
From my personal experience, DC Universe Online is fantastic so far, adding to the PlayStation 3’s diverse catalogue of games. However, as I steadily approach the end game, I can’t help but wonder if SOE will deliver on their promises for updated content each month, something which will ultimately define whether the subscription fee is justified.
Look out for our full written review in the coming weeks. It’s going to be a whopper.
