DC Universe Online Gets Release Date

The MMO, DC Universe, has finally announced its release date 01/11/11.  A nice choice of date, I would have to say. This release date is slated for North America on the PC and PS3 (UK Release Date: 1/14/11). If youre planning on grabbing one, the PC version will cost $49.99 while the PS3 is $59.99.  Both versions comes with a free 30-day subscription to the MMO.  After the trial, it will cost $15 a month – or $199 for a lifetime subscription.

For those wondering about the game, the main gist of it is that its an online universe where players can create their own brand of villains and heroes under the guidance of Batman, the Joker, Superman, etc.

Game features:

  • Visceral combat where you control every blow your character strikes
  • Choose your side superhero or villain as you battle to save or conquer the universe.
  • Fight alongside or against your favorite DC heroes and villains including Batman, The Joker, Superman, Wonder Woman and others…
  • State-of-the-art physics engine and use objects in the world around you as weapons, including even your enemies!
  • Create a custom DC-style hero or villain, each with a unique look and combination of superpowers.
  • Embark on heroic or villainous story-driven adventures
  • Explore the DC Universe Gotham City, Metropolis,  Arkham Asylum,  and the Justice League of America Watchtower.
While not free, the game itself is promising.  Ive always wanted to make my own kind of superhero and this game provides that and more. DC fans, this game may just be what you’re looking for.

Split/Second Gets Release Date

At last year’s E3 there was one game that stood out and completely blew me away and it was from Disney Interactive Studios. Split/Second, the action racing game from Black Rock Studios is bringing us a racing game that we’ve never seen before. From the creators of Pure, Split/Second was awarded Best Racing Game  of E3 2009 from many critics.

The upcoming title is set to bring us a Hollywood style racing game with huge explosions making every lap unpredictable. Today Disney Interactive Studios announced that Split/Second will be released in North America on May 18th and in Europe on May 21st. They have been pretty tight lipped about the upcoming game but I’m sure we will be hearing more and more in the coming months, so stay tuned. If you don’t know much about it you can check out our preview here with some gameplay footage from E3.
