[Interview] DC Universe Online: Jens Andersen & The Hand of Fate

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,643MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

DC Universe Online players recently saw the deployment of The Hand of Fate downloadable content. We managed to catch up with Creative Director Jens Andersen to talk about The Hand of Fate, its new features, Operations and much more. Read on!

MMORPG: What about the features of the update, in regards to gameplay?  What are the big new additions this time?

Jens Andersen: The biggest new addition is the Utility Belt Attachment. These new trinkets turn your existing belt into a hiding place for all kinds of items. Players will be able to load out all kinds of toys, consumables, and trinkets. They are now more free to include novelty items and useful trinkets in their loadouts because the stats that matter are on the Utility Belt Attachment itself. It really frees players up to have more options in combat and more fun when just socializing.

    oooooo ah?
    Brad McQuaid Quote:  So, God-willing, the Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen team and I will be able to make or allow that magic to happen a third time, and it too will be not just a great game, but also that catalyst again that brings people together, sometimes out of their comfort zone, learning how to work together not just tactically in a virtual world but also socially in the real world.

    I like that they added new content but wheres content for those who dont do end game. I ply the game not as much as I did cause of another game but I do still play maybe 2 or 3 hrs a week and still running the same stuff I want to see new stuff new areas like a new city zone and not like the flash DLC but like Metro and Gotham. Just tired of running the same contnet over and over again to get better gear gets boring and I still love open world PvP and what not but add more content  for none end gamers.

    To me I enjoy gaming I dont play to be uber I play to have fun. If a game is not fun to me guess what I move on and play something else till I find one that is. When I find that great game and not sure if in my life time there will be one I hope it has everything I want in an mmo.

    I was really looking forward to this DLC but now I'm not getting it and pretty much dropped the game. 

    Why? Because SOE has been banning innocent people for hacking and and they did it to me last week.

    So I advise anyone planning on spending any money on this or any SOE games to tread carefully. 

    But don't take my word for it... check their own forums, google it and check out the report on ripoffreport.com http://www.ripoffreport.com/video-film-production/sony-online-entertai/sony-online-entertainment-soe-30725.htm

    I wish SOE would stop doing this so I could feel safe playing the game again. It is lots of fun, until you get banned for no reason.

    No, I was banned for 3 days. I can log in now, but I don't feel safe doing it.

    But like I said, don't take my word for it, check for yourself. Either that or don't come crying to me when they ban you for no reason.

    That's rude. I am sure she is being honest about being banned for no real reason. Look at Funcom... They did it, I wouldn't put it past SOE (nor Nexon and neither EA).

    I was going to look into DCUO, then heard that in Europe it was now in the hands of some company that is using dodgy staff. Players were getting their accounts hacked, so decided not to give it a look.
  • thefounderthefounder Sacramento, ARPosts: 19Member

    i tried DCUO for the first time about 4 months ago, figuring that it would occupy my attention until GW2 released... well it did far more than that.. it absolutely captured me. love this game to tears. and the more i play, the more i appreciate its depth. it has so much humor and wit and its combat is f'ing fantastic. PVE and PVP are just great. and the huge open world is thriving with action and danger.  and i can honestly say ive never seen two characters that looked the same. love DCUO. lovelovelovelove it.

    i'm enjoying GW2 since its release - great game. but i've become a subscriber to DCUO and its my great love right now - its who i go home to each night -i've commited my heart to her. GW2 is kind of a mistress i cheat with on occasion ;)

    wtf are you talking about? greed? their FTP allows you to play to max level and raid and do alerts... quite a damn bit. and they have special sales all the time. i played for 3 months FTP and when i finally decided i loved the game and subscribed, i got 4 expansions and 3 months of game time for 40$... thats quite a good deal.

    i would have paid twice that for this game, its that good. best combat system ive played yet, and fantastically fun PVE.  TONS OF OPEN WORLD PVP... so damn good. its been a LONG time since i've felt so attached to one of my MMO characters, but i swear i love playing my supervillian Light Controller!! i really want to see him grow and get better at this game.

    listen, i was a diehard SOE hater - they ruined both of our Everquest games - but DCUO is an absolute joy to play and worth every penny. i strongly urge anyone looking for an engrossing and immersive and fun and CHALLENGING game, to try DCUO.

    Everyone should know by now that any game SoE gets their grubby, dirty hands on, they fk up. To be surprised or astonished about their games is to be naive since their records speak loud volumnes for themselves.

    I played during beta, the game was meh.  I came back  tried it after free to play, it was still meh.  The main problem was all the hacking that was going on during pvp.  I know they tried to address some of it, but there still was a lot of hacks going on.  Have they fixed any of the problems with pvp?   I just found the game boring. I would have deinstalled it but soe forgot to give us a deinstall tool.
