Available on Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4, Xbox™ One, and Windows PC, your origin story begins now.
Create your own hero or villain who will fight alongside and against legendary characters in the DC Universe. Experience visceral combat where you control every blow you strike in an epic, ongoing battle over the fate of the universe as you know it!
Fight for glory. Fight for power. Fight in a way you’ve never fought before. DCUO features fast-paced, physics-based action combat that will give you the incredible feeling of being truly in the action. Pick up items and smash them into your enemies, leap across chasms in the height of a skirmish, and feel your powers impact the world around you as you summon energy for amazing feats.
Embark on heroic or villainous story-driven adventures penned by famous DC writers such as Geoff Johns and Marv Wolfman. You’ll begin by choosing a famous DC character to guide you through your journey. Heroes can be led by Batman, Superman, or Wonder Woman, while Villains take their influence from The Joker, Lex Luthor, or Circe. Throughout your missions, you’ll come face-to-face with characters like the Fastest Man Alive Barry Allen, Shazam’s nemesis Black Adam, and the Kryptonian hero Power Girl. Want to learn how to fight like these iconic characters? Join Legends PvP or PvE special combat simulations, where you will assume the appearance, movement ability, powers, and more of an iconic DC character, like Harley Quinn, Nightwing, Catwoman, and more.
Exobyte data from Brainiac’s ship has caused the humans of Metropolis and Gotham to take on strange and unusual powers. Which will you choose for your hero or villain? Your power determines how you’ll act in a fight, so choose wisely. Fire, Ice, Earth, Rage, and Atomic powers are tank powers with higher defense and health. Mental, Gadgets, Quantum, Munitions, and Light are controller roles, with more vitalization. If you prefer to be a healer with higher restoration and power, opt for Sorcery, Celestial, Electricity, or Nature.
Move with tremendous acceleration down the streets, up the sides of buildings, or even across ceilings with superspeed. Be a master aerialist and climber with acrobatics or soar over the skyscrapers and swoop down to engage your enemies with flight. Want to take to the skies in a different way? Try the aerial movement mode variant skimming.
Don’t let your hero or villain enter combat unarmed! Choose one-handed for the precision and strength of Hawkman or Deathstroke, hurl power at your foes like Starfire or Killer Frost with hand blaster, or use trick-shot archery skills with bow like Green Arrow and Merlyn. Brute strength, like Superman or Doomsday, is found in brawling. You can be a master sharpshooter with dual pistols like Arsenal and Two-Face, or take precise aim with rifle like Mister Freeze. If Nightwing’s flurry of blinding strikes is your style, dual wield. Batman and Catwoman are known for martial arts, or strike out with staff like Robin and The Huntress. Swing, slam, and smash your two-handed weapon like Steel and Harley Quinn, or defend and deliver brutal attacks with shield like Wonder Woman.

Experience the intensity of a world created in the artistic vision of legendary comic book artist Jim Lee. Walk the darkened streets of Gotham City, investigate the mysteries of Metropolis, and explore legendary locations including Arkham Asylum and the Justice League of America Watchtower.
A hero or villain is only as good as his or her secret hideout. In DC Universe Online, that’s your base – a customizable location that allows you to unlock combat abilities, upgrade to include conveniences, and even engage in PvP with Lair Battles! Secret hideout too small for your full team? That’s why you need a League Hall. League Halls are a place for your league to meet, live, share powers, and show off the trophies you and your fellow leaguemates have acquired.
