~Jens Andersen, Creative Director, DC Universe Online

Anyone who has had any contact with me about DC Universe Online knows that I love to hint about what’s coming next.

Now the time has finally come when the team is ready to reveal what we have been working on for so many months. So let’s get right to it… More
