DC Universe Online Celebrates Its Sixth Anniversary With a New Event

by Robert Workman


It’s hard to believe that Daybreak’s DC Universe Online is already six years old. It only seemed like yesterday that we hopped into the superhero-laden adventure for the first time, thwarting villains and unlocking cool new stuff.

But the company isn’t resting easy on the game’s anniversary. It’s announced a new event that fans can partake in, in which they’ll travel through time to an alternate version of Metropolis. Here, a Qwardian invasion is taking place, as they’ve come from the Antimatter Universe to face off against the Anti-Monitor.

All players that take part in the game will automatically be upgraded to max level, so they can enjoy the following content:

  • New Open World Missions: Metropolis Antimatter Invasion Zone
  • New 8-Player Raid: Centennial Collapse
  • New Gear, Collections, Feats, and More
  • New Anti-Monitor-inspired gear
  • New auto-leveling gear set
  • New base items and consumables

In addition, players will also be able to access an Anniversary Time Capture that features Qwardian inspired gear, as well as a variety of mods and styles to try out. 

But you best hurry, as the DC Universe Online Anti-Monitor event will only be taking place through January 31, 2017. Get your superhero on!

DC Universe Online is available now for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
