DC Universe Online Trailer Explores 'Suicide Slums'

By Alice O'Connor, Jun 10, 2010 5:40am PDT DC Universe Online game director Chris Cao introduces the 'Suicide Slums' area of Superman's stomping grounds, Metropolis, in a new trailer for the super-MMORPG.

While Cao describes Suicide Slums as "a place you're not supposed to go, sort of an iffy, dodgy kind of place," it's also home to superhero Steel's headquarters, the Steelworks, and the club owned by the Man of Steel's pal Bibbo Bibbowski.

Coming from Star Wars Galaxies developer Sony Online Entertainment Austin, DC Universe Online is currently slated for PC and PlayStation 3 releases later this year.

  • Oooo will there be a yearlong Terry Berg storyline where he gets beat up for his orientation in NYC, because, as you know, NYC is full of angry white guys that want to beat the living heck out of people with alternative lifestyles. You should see the riots we have in the Village during the Halloween parades!

    Let's put a finer point on it. Dan Didio must go. I don't read DC anymore because of his obsession with putting his personal life into the titles he oversees (all of them at this point...) His pet, Judd Winick, is another one I can't stomach. I don't buy comics that try to feed me silly messages based on the theories of feeble political intellects.

    On the other hand, Geoff Johns might be the greatest thing to happen to comics in 20 years. If he was attached to this project, I'd be all over it.
