Gotham City's virtual world is about to get a next-gen boost as DC Universe Online, the long-running MMO action game, gears up to launch on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles.
Ted Stone, the senior community manager at Dimensional Ink Games, proudly shared the forthcoming expansion in a blog post.
In a strategic move to bring the iconic universe to cutting-edge gaming platforms, DC Universe Online will undergo some improvements. The development team will work on the gameplay while enhancing the gaming experience's overall quality.

Players can expect to witness various improvements rolling out over the coming months leading up to the launch of the new consoles. Some of these upgrades will be available around the time of the launch, while others will be introduced over the course of the next year.
All gamers will continue to play with the same characters and friends, irrespective of the console they are on.
According to the blog post, players will still be playing on the same servers even when they choose to upgrade.
Dimensional Ink Games guarantees a seamless transition, ensuring that all in-game purchases, accomplishments, and progress remain intact.
It's worth noting that the announcement from Dimensional Ink Games did not explicitly mention the Xbox Series S. This leaves room for speculation regarding its inclusion in the upgrade, especially because most titles run on both series.
In addition, Episode 46: Justice League Dark Cursed will launch in October.
The episode will have engaging activities, including normal and elite versions of On Duty content. Episode 46 includes legendary DC characters like Batman, Wonder Woman, Zatanna, John Constantine, Deadman, and Hecate. The episode will also include open-world missions, solo quests, alerts, and a raid.
