DC Universe Online is now available on the Nintendo Switch. The Nintendo Switch version will be different in that it will be hosted on its own servers away from the other DCUO communities. While cross-play across the different game systems isn’t available right now, the game developers are looking possible options in the future.
DC Universe Online also has announced new episodes launching as well. Execs announced two new episodes based on Scott Snyder’s and Greg Capullo’s mini-series Dark Nights: Metal. The first episode, Metal: Part I will launch on all platforms in September and will look at the effects of Batman breaching the barriers between the world and the Dark Multiverse.
Metal Part I: Batman has breached the barrier between our world and the Dark Multiverse, and then disappeared. In through the breach storm the Dark Knights, twisted versions of Batman hell-bent on revenge. What is this Dark Multiverse? Who are these Batmen? How can they be stopped? The answers lie in the exceptionally rare forms of Metal that the Dark Knights seek, Metal which must be found and returned before our world melts into the Darkness.
