has had its ups and downs, though since going free-to-play
the super-MMO has been on the rise, with the devs reporting a big increase in
new players after the switch. Today Sony Online Entertainment launched some new content for
those new players, with the release of Update 6 for the title. And at the very
least, fans of Superman II will be excited to dive in.
The plot of
the new Kryptonian-heavy raid picks up after the end of the previous mission in
the fifth update, as General Zod has turned on Superman and Lex Luthor to steal
an ancient artifact from Krypton. The fight takes place in Supes’ artic
Fortress of Solitude and Zod is backed up by Ursa and Non, the same enforcers
he had on his side in the classic Christopher Reeves film. The update also
includes new weapons and armor, including some Kryptonian military weapons. The
download is free to all DCUO players no matter what their access level is. We’ll
leave you with a video introduction to the Fortress of Solitude.
