LOS ANGELES — Sony’s big reveal Tuesday came in the form of DC Universe Online, the first massively multiplayer online game that allows players to revel in Jim Lee’s interpretation of the DC universe.
Players can choose to either create a character that looks like a previous DC character; say Batman or Superman, or they can create a character that is uniquely their own.
After an initial battle where the player fights alongside Superman against Braniac and Lex Luthor, the player can choose whether or not to walk down the path of righteousness and earn Superman and Batman’s respect, or become a villain and fight against them.
Comic book legend Jim Lee was the Executive Creative Director of the game and created the visual world DC Universe would be set in based on art from the entire history of DC comics.
DC Universe Online does not yet have a release date, but is hypothesized to come out at some point in late 2009.
