DC Universe Online prides itself on the ability to pull from comics from DC Comics history and implement them into the game. The MMORPG has gone into the past, into the future, and just about everything in between. But today, a brand new episode has launched, one that promises to be one of the grandest and most fun episodes the game has ever had. For in this episode, you’re going to Earth-3, and meeting the very interesting foes that live there.
For those who don’t know, the DC Comics universe is comprised of 52 separate universes, called the Multiverse. In each universe, something is different from the Earth-Prime universe. This new episode features Earth-3, which is known by many as the “opposite” Earth. For on this Earth, The Justice League are the bad guys, and they’re called the Crime Syndicate. And you get to go meet them, and fight them, repeatedly.
This special new episode/event will have you first finding a mysterious visitor from this planet, then teaming up with both him and Lex Luthor to go to Earth-3 and save a world being run by the Crime Syndicate. Here, you’ll meet Ultraman, Superwoman, Owlman, Johnny Quick, and more opposite versions of classic characters.
Some of the things you can expect from this episode include multiple Raids, including The Escape and The Panopticon. There’s also a 4-player Operation called Injustice System, where you’ll team up to take down the corrupt mayor of Earth-3’s Gotham.
Not to mention you’ll be able to explore Earth-3 via the new Open World Zone, and of course get special items and armor based on characters from the world itself.
Comic fans will also note that the models of the Crime Syndicate are based on the previous appearance by the group in “Forever Evil.” This will be a fun introduction to DC Universe Online.
