The Switch version of free-to-play massively multiplayer online action game DC Universe Online will launch via the Nintendo eShop on August 6, developer Daybreak Game Company announced.
The DC Universe-themed, free-to-play massively multiplayer online game first launched for PlayStation 3 and PC in January 2011, followed by PlayStation 4 in November 2013 and Xbox One in April 2016.
Accounts or characters from other platforms cannot be transferred to the Switch version of DC Universe Online, as it connects using Nintendo Accounts and does not link to existing accounts. The Switch version will run on its own server separate from other platforms, but Daybreak Game Company said it “looks forward to exploring cross-play options in the future.”
Here is a brief overview of the game, via its PlayStation Store page:
