‘DC Universe Online’ Gets Combat Improvements, PVP Maps And More Aquaman In Update 27
Last summer’s Aquaman vs. Ocean Master-centric “Tides of War” event has returned to DC Universe Online with a few new perks as part of the game’s recent 27th update. The storyline will unfold similarly to last summer, with heroes siding with Aquaman and villains siding with Ocean Master in a battle for the throne of Atlantis, although players will have access to a new-for-2013 diving helmet accessory and other Atlantean items. The real meat of DCUO update 27 is its new PvP lair and Shadowlands maps and overall combat improvements.
All this fighting and feuding will reportedly be improved, too, as DCUO says it’s improved the game’s combat mechanics across the board, with “NPCs respecting suppression game effects properly, NPCs’ breaking out rules more closely resembling players, and counter immunity improvements.” If you’re the type of player who generally ignores passive attacks and relies on brute strength, this might not mean much, but passive characters dealing in magic and other combat types will probably appreciate the overhaul.
DC Universe Online update 27 is live now on PC and PlayStation 3.
