DC Universe Online's
Update 31 is on its way, and with it come some of the biggest changes ever implemented to the game's core design and appearance. Executive producer Larry Liberty
today outlined the key points in a letter to the community, explaining to players what they can expect from Update 31 and beyond.
According to Liberty, the bulk of Update 31 focuses on preparing DCUO
for its impending PS4 launch
. Changes include graphics upgrades like higher resolution textures and area redesigns, along with a "remastering" of the core leveling experience. Leveling from 1-30 has seen special attention; Liberty noted that new players should see a smoother progression of content with less chance of being stuck without a mission.
Update 31 is tentatively scheduled for a November launch on PC and PS3
. The game's PS4
release is still on track to match up with the console's release window.
