DC Universe Online to feature magic, shapeshifting and more

DC Universe Online game director Chris Cao and creative director Jens Andersen regularly answer questions about the upcoming game that they receive on Facebook, and in the latest episode of “Inside the Studio” they cover a lot of game mechanics. Like, can you shapeshift in the game? Yes. Can you use magic? Sure. Will there be real-time day/night cycles? Nope, as Gotham and Metropolis have their own persona — the Bat Signal doesn’t work quite as well during the day, after all.

If you’re curious about DCUO, it’s a nice primer on how some of the more specific elements of the game will actuality work.

I still would like to see Gotham City in the daytime and Metropolis at night. Still sounds like it will be cool, though.

Too bad the design looks overdone and downright ugly. Same thing with the Batman Arkham Asylum game. They tack on all manner of ugly extraneous detail, and texture, and change character designs with poor results (See Harley Quinn as whacked out candy stripper), sorry, but these last round of DC games look like crap.

I guess if you can’t do simple in HD, you might as well overwhelm with detail.

I love shapeshifting. Where can i find a video of it? can you e mail me what you can turn into or a link to a utube vid of it? Thx please no bad stuff or you will be reported
