Only a year after launching Sony Online Entertainment has finally gotten around to applying the long-awaited crafting update to DC Universe Online.
Players can craft upgrades for existing items via sockets from level ten onwards and learn their trade at either the Watchtower or Hall of Doom depending on their faction.
According to the game’s official website, the new crafting system will consist of the follow mechanics:
- Finding and Researching: Plans to create Equipment Mods to upgrade gear and consumables can be collected throughout the world.
- Gathering: Throughout the open world (including Gotham City, Metropolis and Central City), players (1-30) can find exobytes and other items.
- Salvaging: Players can turn unused, uncommon or rare items into crafting materials, and they can recover a rare item and create a useful piece of new equipment.
- Collecting: Bosses will drop useful ingredients such as Focusing Elements and Plans throughout the game.
Most notably of all the ability to craft isn’t restricted to Premium or Legendary members as even Free players can get involved.
Ever since DC Universe Online went free-to-play the player numbers have experienced a sharp increase and as long as SOE continue to add new gameplay mechanics those numbers shouldn’t subside.
