Sony Online Entertainment, LLC (SOE) releases the latest installment in the DC Universe™ Online (DCUO) saga — Origin Crisis. In the seventh downloadable content (DLC) pack, new high-level multiplayer and solo adventures will send players through alternate realities as they amend or alter the origins of their favorite Heroes and Villains. Origin Crisis will also introduce DCUO’s newest power set — Quantum — allowing players to alter time and space as they battle foes.
“What if Batman’s parents had never died, or if Superman teamed up with Lex Luthor? We wanted to explore the idea of time travel and really dig into these alternate realities,” said Jens Andersen, Creative Director, DC Universe Online. “We have selected some truly compelling narratives to explore in Origin Crisis, enabling players to alter the core motivations of their favorite heroes and villains and to see how the world changes as a result.”
In Origin Crisis –– the space/time continuum has been compromised, and though Brainiac has been defeated, war wages on.
