The first major update for DC Universe Online
is now available for both the PS3 and PC versions of the game (just a day or so after the first buyers' subscription plans
kicked in). The patch includes a new eight-player raid inside the Batcave; a number of new missions based around Catwoman and other DC luminaries; some "Love is a Battlefield" holiday content and the long-awaited Auction House functionality. Sony is also streamlining the social UI quite a bit
, answering players' wishes for an easier-to-use chat system.
And if that's not enough updating for you, Sony has started revealing what's coming next in an interview over at PC Gamer
. More bugfixes are incoming, including fixes to issues around voice chat and grouping. In future content, Sony's Chris Cao says that The Penguin is going to get his due
, as well as the Flash and some of his associated heroes. It all sounds fun -- SOE promised to push updates quickly on this one, and this free content is its first delivery.
