DC Universe Online to add Metal Part I and Metal Part II episodes on Switch later this year

Posted on July 21, 2019 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

DC Universe Online is coming to Switch at the start of August. Players will immediately gain access to a ton of content in the MMO that has been ongoing for years, but there’s even more to come very soon.

At Comic-Con, Daybreak announced two new episodes for DC Universe Online: Metal Part 1 and Metal Part II. Both include new and returning heroes and villains, new events, and more.

Here’s the full rundown:

NEW EPISODE: METAL PART I

In 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.

SJ’S TAKE: “Metal reveals the Dark Multiverse – terrifying alternative universes where Batman has fallen to evil. If you thought Owl Man of the Crime Syndicate was scary, you better prepare yourself for the Batman Who Laughs. The Metal comics are such a trip. We’ve had a lot of fun bringing this crazy, dark, complex story arc to life in DCUO.” – SJ Mueller, DC Universe Online Creative Director

THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT METAL PART I:

  • Metal Part I will be a large-scale episode, with level-agnostic event versions of content available to all players for a limited time.
  • The episode will feature new and returning heroes and villains, including The Red Death, The Merciless, and The Batman Who Laughs.
  • The storyline will include singleplayer and multiplayer adventures set in iconic but twisted locales as our universe descends.
  • The episode will launch new player rewards, including new gear, styles, artifacts, base items, and feats.

NEW EPISODE: METAL PART II

In METAL PART II, the saga of the Dark Knights, the Dark Multiverse, and Metal will come to an explosive conclusion. The Bat-God Barbatos has waited since the dawn of the universe for this moment, and it seems nothing can stand in his way.

LEAH’S TAKE: “When we were just starting on the idea to bring Metal to the game, we knew the size and complexity of the cast and story would be challenging. We started testing the waters with looks from the comics – The Red Death and The Drowned – releasing those styles. The reaction was so overwhelming we knew we had to figure out how to bring the story into an episode. The way we figured it out? Not one Episode, but two! Doing the story right meant taking the time, and the team really stepped up and made it their own. We knew we were onto something good!” – Leah Bowers, DC Universe Online Executive Producer

THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT METAL PART II:

  • Metal Part II will be a large-scale episode, with level-agnostic event versions of content available to all players for a limited time.
  • The episode will feature new and returning heroes and villains, including the Bat-God Barbatos.
  • The storyline will include singleplayer and multiplayer adventures set in locales too terrifying to be revealed now (spoilers).
  • The episode will launch new player rewards, including new gear, styles, artifacts, base items, and feats.

Episode 35: Metal Part I launches in September. Episode 36: Metal Part II follows in December.
