Grab your cape and spandex as DC Universe Online comes to Xbox One

It’s a great day for all you wannabe Super Heroes or villains as Daybreak Game Company has officially released DC Universe Online (DCUO) on the Xbox One. What’s it all about though, well are you sitting comfortably, then I will begin.

Lex Luthor has traveled back through time with news of a dire future. While the heroes and villains spent years battling amongst themselves, Brainiac has fed on their powers, building strength to return to Earth and destroy humanity. To change the future, Lex has come back to set off a device that bestows superpowers to thousands of everyday citizens and give humanity a fighting chance. Can Brainiac be stopped, or is this another nefarious Lex Luthor plot?

DCUO allows players to create their own Super Heroes or Super-Villians in the massive multplayer worlds of Metropolis, Gotham City and beyond. Armed with your favourite superpowers you can fight for justice and chaos or as one of the 40 available DC Comic characters including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Joker or Harley Quinn in Legends PvP and PvE games.

Daybreak Games announce H1Z1 title split

Daybreak Games are known for their MMORPG’s, EverQuest, PlanetSide and Landmark. They’ve been developing zombie survival shooter, H1Z1, and it has been in Steam Early Access for some time. The developer has noticed that the title has a natural two genre split so they’re taking the decision to split the game into two separate titles.

There will be the all-out spectacle of H1Z1: King of the Kill featuring multiple fight-to-the-death game modes, including Battle Royale.

Additionally, the title has spawned H1Z1: Just Survive, where you’ll be facing the prospect of not being eaten by ravening animated corpses. Crafting, base-building and scavenging will be the difference between life and death.

Jens Andersen, Executive Creative Director of Daybreak Games commented;

H1Z1: King of the Kill is all about the spectacle. All of the game modes will feature unique gameplay elements that invite prowess, chaos, glory and a little bit of ridiculousness all into one fight. The next game mode we introduce will make vehicles an important part of the exhibition, adding another layer of energy and turbulence to the mix as players have to move rapidly to different areas of the map in order to stay alive. H1Z1: Just Survive development will remain focused on creating an open-world survival experience. We are working on a world that’s immersive, that captures the mindset of the last remaining humans trying to survive a post-apocalyptic zombie-filled wasteland. What does it feel like to be forced to scavenge for resources, to have to construct shelters to live, to aid or hinder the last remnants of human civilisation?

Both titles will have their own development team and Daybreak will be bringing both to Xbox One. H1Z1: King of the Kill will be coming this summer, with more details still to come on the console release of H1Z1: Just Survive.

If you’ve already bought the original title on Steam Early Access, you’ll still get both titles when they’re released, which is excellent.

Keep it TiX for more on H1Z1 when it’s released.
