DC Universe Online – Who Do You Trust Trailer

DC Universe Online

One of the trailers that got the fanboys all hot under the collar at SDCC this weekend was the cinematic for DC Universe Online, a six minute trailer for the new MMORPG to be released on Playstation 3 and PC this November. Players go through the DC universe, as either a member of the JLA or the League of Doom, and interact with the world. All characters are unique, players cannot play as established DC universe characters.

The cinematic sets up the story for the DC online universe; Lex Luthor, just at the point where he is triumphant in killing Superman, realises in doing so, he has doomed Earth, as Brainiac launches a full scale attack on the planet. Luthor then travels back in time, to warn Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, in order to prevent Brainiac’s sucess.

How this then fits into the day to day gameplay, I’m not entirely sure. I love DC Universe games, heck I even bought Mortal Kombat vs DCU, but while the cinematic does look fab, it all leaves me a little cold. The vocal talent is as you’d expect, Mark Hamill once again voicing The Joker, James Marsters voicing both Lex Luthor and Brainiac (in a nod to his role in Smallville) and Gina Torres voicing Wonder Woman.

As yet, I’ve never felt the need to dip my toes into the vast MMORPG worlds, if anything was going to tempt me, this would be it. But as yet, I remain unconvinced. What about you guys? Excited?
