DC Universe Online will share the same servers on both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, according to Online senior creative director Jens Andersen.
This means that players on both platforms will be able to collaborate and compete with one another. “We wanted to make sure that the release of DCUO on PS4 was not a homewrecker. We know there are lots of people from lots of different walks of life that find themselves in the same league, and enjoy playing with one another in game, he wrote.
“We realized some people would be early adopters of the new platform, and others would wait to buy one. We felt it was very important to maintain cohesion within the community, so we decided to let them play on the same servers.”
Anderson also confirmed that PlayStation 3 players will be able to pick their characters up on the PlayStation 4 version and continue exactly where they left off.
