‘DC Universe Online’ Shows Off Metropolis’ Suicide Slums

Metropolis’ shady industrial district isn’t necessarily on any timid tourist’s list of places to visit, but for the superpowered players of the upcoming “DC Universe Online” MMORPG, Suicide Slums seems poised to serve as a destination of choice.

In a new video hosted by game director Chris Cao, the scummiest area of Superman’s city seems to shine as the home to John Henry Irons’ Steelworks workshop as well as Bibbo Bibowski’s Ace of Clubs drinking establishment. These are bastions of light in an otherwise morally murky locale, of course, with symptoms of a highly distressed urban environment surrounding them.

There’s burning cars, blowing debris, dirty industrial decor and an oppressive ratio of concrete to plant life. Seems like as good a place as any to either be up to no good, or to beat up those who are up to no good.

See the slums in action after the jump.
