DC Universe hotfix improves voice chat and more

Superhero MMO fine-tuned

Sony Online Entertainment's issued a hotfix for superhero MMO DC Universe Online designed to improve the performance of voice chat and address other "outstanding issues".


The fix was released in Europe and the US earlier today, and SOE said that players may notice the following changes:

- Abilities: Psychic Empowerment now properly restores power.
- Abilities: Performing a dodge roll will no longer dodge healing abilities.
- Challenges: Power Girl now drops loot in the level 30 Challenge Mode for Storming the Ivory Tower.
- Faction Rewards: Villain faction rewards now only require Marks of Allegiance and no longer require an unavailable badge type.
- Feats: Any feat that requires a specific number of PvP wins should now be granted properly after the correct number of wins.
- Trait Resets: If you reset traits while in a different shape change form you will no longer remain stuck in that form.
- Trait Resets: All buffs cast by the player character from abilities granted by traits will now be removed when resetting traits.
- Trait Resets: Resetting traits with a weapon type equipped that was earned by a trait (i.e. not the weapon type chosen at character create) will no longer continue to give the stats of the equipped weapon with no basic abilities.
- Now all stats will be removed from equipped weapons for which you do not have the required trait.
- In this situation, you should have the same basic punching abilities that you get if you unequip your weapon.
- Purchasing the trait to grant access to that weapon type again will now restore those stats.

SOE president John Smedley said earlier this week that DC Universe Online is the company's fastest selling game ever.
