DC Universe Online Support Ending On PS3 Soon
It is a sad day for those still playing DC Universe Online on the PlayStation 3. Developer Daybreak Game Company has announced over on its official website for the game that it will be terminating its support for the PlayStation 3 version of DC Universe Online at the end of January, 2018. According to Daybreak, terminating the game’s PS3 support will enable the developer to focus their efforts on other platforms, specifically naming the PlayStation 4.
In order to deliver the highest quality experience to our players, we will focus our resources on further optimizing the game for PlayStation 4. While there is still time to continue exploring DCUO on the PS3, we want to give you advanced notice so you can prepare for these future changes.”
Having originally launched on the PlayStation 3 back in 2011, the free-to-play mmo enjoyed a solid run on the console, receiving regular updates and new content even after the game launched on the PlayStation 4 back in November, 2013. Thankfully, those still playing the PlayStation 3 version of the game aren’t entirely left out in the cold. According to Daybreak, players need only log in to the PlayStation 4 version of DC Universe Online to seamlessly transfer player information, subscriptions, DLC purchases, and game information from their old accounts on the PlayStation 3.
There are, of course, a few added incentives for players on the fence about upgrading to the PS4 version of DC Universe Online. The PlayStation 4 version of the game sports enhanced visuals and improved performance utilizing the PS4’s superior graphical capabilities. Addtionally, players can also play DCUO remotely on the PlayStation Vita. Players can also share and livestream DCUO gameplay using the PS4’s built0in social media capabilities. Support for the PlayStation 3 version of DC Universe Online ends on January 31st, 2018.
