Hey, look what the catfish dragged into DC Universe Online

, | Games

The latest update to DC Universe Online, the MMO I’d probably be playing if it weren’t for Secret World, arrives today. It features a much maligned superhero.

The impending Atlantean civil war between Aquaman and his brother, Ocean Master, has come crashing into DC Universe Online. Today, Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) unleashes the Tides of War Summer Seasonal Event, where the fight for the Atlantis crown has come to the surface in a fierce battle for all to witness. Players must choose a side and assist either Aquaman and his loyal Atlanteans or Ocean Master and Mutineers to victory.

Aquaman’s brother’s name is Ocean Master? That can’t be his actual name. I assume it’s just a title that he’s let go to his head.

Tides of War offers players an all-new boss battle with up to four players, open world missions on the waters between Metropolis and Little Bohemia, Atlantean turrets throughout the map, and a slew of new rewards and item drops including Atlantean Suit appearance, Fisherman appearance and new pets!

I’m glad to see an update that doesn’t shove everything into instances. DC Universe Online offered players a wonderful Gotham and Metropolis to explore, and I hope the latest updates have taken better advantage of that. I’m also glad to see Aquaman given his due. Can an Aquaman movie be far behind?
