DCUO players on PC and PS now play together with cross play! When you log in today, you will seamlessly be playing with players on the opposite platform, including in groups, in leagues, in On Duty content, and in the open world. We hope you will enjoy the new faces you'll meet, and the freedom to play with virtually anyone or everyone else (in your region) who plays DCUO.

In the spirit of togetherness such an occasion calls for, several players are planning a cross play meet up in the Metropolis PvE phase this Friday night. Join us in-game during the DCUO SourceCast and get to know some new friends. We'll be there! Click here for more information.

Frequently Asked Questions

A: No. The accounts remain separate, and your characters remain attached to your PC or PS accounts.

Q: Do my purchases transfer to the other platform?
A: No. The accounts remain separate, and your characters remain attached to your PC or PS accounts.

Q: Can I transfer my characters from one platform to another?
A: No. We do not plan to offer character transfers of any kind, for business and technical reasons.

Q: Can we be in groups and leagues together?

Happy 5th Anniversary! Plus, News for 2016!

Happy 5th Anniversary, Heroes and Villains! Today we’re celebrating five years in Metropolis, Gotham, and the many other locations we’ve traveled to in the DC Universe. And we’re just getting started!

To celebrate our anniversary, we were featured on two of Kinda Funny Games’ livestreams today. On Colin & Greg Live, the first big piece of news was announced:

PC/PS Cross-Play

Have you been waiting to do battle with a friend or family member, but couldn’t because they were playing on a different platform? Get ready to save the world TOGETHER, because PC/PS crossplay is coming the week of January 25, 2016!

Then, on Kinda Funny Plays: DCUO, we revealed a LOT more about what’s coming up in 2016. Watch the replay video for all the action, but here are some quick highlights:

Episode 21: Inspired by the Legends of Tomorrow

Get ready for Hawkgirl, Hawkman, Captain Cold, and Atom – the Legends of Tomorrow are coming to DCUO in Episode 21 next month.

More New Storylines

In addition to Legends of Tomorrow-inspired content, you can expect new storylines in 2016 including:

A New Superman Storyline, featuring Zod, Ursa, Non, Superman, Lois Lane, Supergirl, and Superboy, now voiced by Greg Miller! The story will begin in the PhantomZone and will eventually take you all the way to the epic finish in the City of Kandor!

The finale of Halls of Power – Get ready. Darkseid’s forces are invading Central City, and we’re going to need YOUR HELP to stop them!

Harley Quinn – Love Harley Quinn? You will love this crazy storyline centered around her.

Plus, later in the year, the finale of Amazon Fury!


New Powerset: WATER

Our next powerset is Water, featuring Hydrokinetics (Hard Water Constructs, inspired by characters like Aqualad) and Tide-Calling (Waterbending, inspired by characters like Mera).

4th Color Palette

Customize your character further with the addition of a 4th choice in your color palette. More colors, more looks, more fun!

Style and Gear Unlocking

Keep up your alternate characters more easily with style and gear unlocking. Keeping to the philosophy established with unlocking feats, you will be able to unlock gear or styles on one character if you have already earned that style or gear on another.

League Recruitment Tools

Finding and joining the right League is the absolute best thing anyone can do to enjoy the game to the max, and we’re going to make that easier to do in-game.

ANNIVERSARY GIFTS!

You didn’t think we’d forget our anniversary did you? There’s a gift waiting for you to commemorate 2015: a new DC Bombshell poster for your base or league hall PLUS a Daybreak emblem for your character. You have to log in by January 31st to get these items, so don’t wait – log in now!

The darkness grows as all light dies,
We crave your hearts and your demise,
By my black hand, the dead shall rise!

The area around the Lantern is scorched earth, scarred by the Corruption brought by the Black. You must fight alongside the Lantern Corps and send Nekron back to the Land of the Unliving in:

Raven, annoyed as ever by her brothers, has asked for your help in putting them back in their places.

Rewards!

We’re at the final month of this cycle, so it’s time to finish off that set of gear with weapons, rings, necks, trinkets, and a new utility belt. And don’t forget, that weapon is going to drop in a weapon box, giving you the option to choose your weapon...so choose wisely. We’re also dropping a rare, yet incredibly cool iconic style that can be traded or sold on the broker. Oh, and a new OP item too.

And as always, there are new styles, feats, collections, a title, and more!

The Batcave is one of the most elusive and iconic locations in the entire DC Universe. It’s been reimagined throughout movies, television series, and, of course, the comics.

Pack #1: Batcave Trophies & More Pack



Who doesn’t want a Batmobile?! Now, granted, you can’t speed through the streets of Gotham with this one, but you can display it proudly alongside many of the other Batcave-inspired items in this pack, including wall and hanging lights, a Batcave door and Bat Symbol window, and large trophy items, like the Joker Playing Card.

Pack #2: Batcomputer & More Pack



If Pack #1 is for the trophy collector, then Pack #2 appeals to the technophile with a replica Batcomputer (in Regular and Alert), computer monitors, and the Bat Symbol Wall Sign. This pack can turn any base into the Tech Hero or Villain’s dream.

Of course, if you want the full Batcave experience in your base, you can pick up BOTH packs, now in the Marketplace. Each pack costs 400 Daybreak Cash or 400 Marketplace Cash.

What are you waiting for? Head to the Marketplace, get your Booster Bundle and Batcave Packs, and get into game! Then, post screenshots of your new auras or decked out lairs below, or tweet them to us at @DCUO!
