DC Universe Online: PC / PS3 Patch v1.03 Goes Live

By Posted 24 Jan 2011, 10:30

Although the DC Universe Online game – which is available for both the PC and PlayStation 3 – was only released less than two weeks ago, we have already heard about a few problems. In fact, as Peter Chubb noted here, gamers began reporting issues with the game just one day after its release.

However, it now appears that Sony Online Entertainment has just released a new patch for the PC and PS3 title. According to a recent article by Joe Anderson over at VG247 (sourced from the official SOE forums), patch v1.03 has been designed to adjust the difficulty, as well as fix a few glitches.

The new patch is said to have fixed an issue where the game’s audio would drop after cut scenes if the player had their music volume set at 0, as well as improved the Client stability and performance and fixed a problem in which the other characters would appear to ‘warp’ onscreen.

It’s also fixed a problem that caused some PlayStation 3 gamers to disconnect or hang during the tutorial. The missions in DC Universe Online – which according to Sebastian Moss at playstationlifestyle.net has now become SOE’s “fastest selling game ever” – have also received a few tweaks.

For example, the Hardcorps and Fateful Omen quests are now available at level 26 instead of level 27, the Road to Hell and Something’s Fishy… quests are now available at level 22 rather than level 23 and the No Joke quest has now been made available at level 18 instead of 19.
