Sony Online Entertainment has released Game Update 34 for its free-to-play MMO DC Universe Online, adding major new features the the game.
Among the apparently "much anticipated" additions is a new Feat Unlocking system, which lets players "use Replay Badges to unlock feats they have already earned on their other characters", access to Green Auras, and a revamped Moon 5v5 PvP map.
The update also includes new Tier Vendor equipment, new HQ map markers, a Sorcery Pet update, New Feats for the recently-released War of the Light Part I DLC, and more.
Game Update 34 is released on PS3, PS4 and PC today, February 25. The full list of new content is below, and a gallery of new related screenshots is above.
Feat Unlocking is a system that will allow you to use Replay Badges to unlock feats you have already earned on your other characters. This will allow players the option to play and progress faster on multiple characters.
Unlocking your feats in-game is simple. All you'll need to do is go the Feats Menu on the character you would like to unlock feats on, see which feats are available to unlock, and then unlock them with Replay Badges, similar to how you would unlock any other lockout in the game.
There are some limitations:
- Players will not be able to unlock feats that they have not already unlocked on at least one character on the account.
- Players will not be able to unlock feats they would not normally be able to see in the UI. This means regular feat-earning rules apply. For example, a Flight character cannot unlock Acrobatics feats.
- Players will not be able to unlock some feats that are role or alignment-specific.
It's good to be Green! An all new Green Aura has been added to Promethium Lockboxes! The Green Aura appears like the other Auras in game and has the same drop chance.
New Tier Vendor Equipment!
With Game Update 34 we are adding new items to Tier 1, 2, and 4 vendors in the Watchtower and Hall of Doom. Players will be able to fill out their gear sets by purchasing this equipment using Marks of Triumph. These items are Neckpieces, Rings, Breakout Trinkets, and Weapons of all 11 types.
New HQ Map Markers!
With Game Update 34, we have added new map markers to the Watchtower and Hall of Doom! These include markers for Tier PvE, Tier PvP, Mark Conversion, and Style Vendors. Head to your HQ to check it out!
Sorcery Pet Update
Fury and Guardian pets have been given a visual and mechanical overhaul with Game Update 34! In addition to the pet updates, we've added a new power and reworked an old ability to provide additional pet benefits!
The Watcher and Fury pets have also been combined into a single point in the Summoning Tree and both are available upon spending this point. A new ability, Soul Barrage, has been added to the Summoning Tree where Summon Fury used to be.
Moon 5v5 PvP Map!
Battle it out in our all new Capture and Hold map, The Moon! Our new map is 5v5 and is available for both Legends and Arena PvP.
New War of the Light Part I (DLC 9) Feats!
With War of the Light Part I DLC, we introduced a new type of Bounty and Wanted mission in which players are not directed to a single Bounty or Wanted target, but rather are directed to an area where multiple Bounty or Wanted targets have a chance to appear.
These Bounties now have all new Feats for Heroes and Villains! Five in all, look under War of the Light Part I in your Feats menu for Mist Opportunity, Mist List, and Misted Menaces!
