Daybreak Game Company has long boasted about the success of DC Universe Online on the PlayStation 3 and 4. Now it’s time to see if the former Sony Online Entertainment can carry over that success onto a non-Sony console.
DCUO launches for the Xbox One today, with all content from the PC and PlayStation versions being available from day one. However, XB1 players will be pretty much isolated on their platform; there’s no cross-device play with PC/PSN players, and you can’t transfer characters to the XB1.
As you might expect, you’ll need Xbox Live Gold to play DCUO on the Xbox One, which puts a bit of a damper on the free-to-play experience, but there’s nothing Daybreak can do about that. You can read the full announcement and FAQ on the DCUO site.
If you’re planning to jump into DC Universe Online on the Xbox One this weekend, leave us a comment below and let us know how it goes!
