The Switch is being treated to another dose of superhero action today in the form of DC Universe Online.

The game is a free-to-play, massively multiplayer online game unsurprisingly set in the DC universe which has players creating their own unique character. From there, you can who buddy up with and fight against DC stars like Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, and The Joker in an ever-expanding world which has been growing thanks to new content updates and quality-of-life improvements.

The development team has been working hard to ensure Switch players have "the best MMO experience", with a revamped tutorial, access to the latest event content within a few hours of starting the game, new augment and artifact systems, and updated character models all being present. The Switch version of the game will come with a brand new server, meaning you won't be able to connect with players from other platforms (at launch, at least), but a Nintendo Switch Online subscription isn't required to get stuck in.

There's more to come, too, as DCUO will receive two new episodes based on DC’s Dark Nights: Metal comic book series later this year. Episode 35: Metal - Part I will release in September 2019, with the finale, Episode 36: Metal - Part II releasing in December.

Will you be giving this a try today? It's hard to say no when you can grab it for free!
