Back in August developer 4:33 Creative Lab in conjunction with DC and Warner Bros. announced their new superhero action RPG called DC Unchained. In it you’d amass a roster of famous DC characters and then set them up in teams of 3 to take on a multitude of bad guys throughout the DC Universe in the story campaign or hop online to pit your team against the teams of other players. It’s basically Marvel Future Fight (Free) but for DC characters, and it looked really fantastic. Unfortunately no release date was announced at that time and I’ve been wondering myself what the deal is with DC Unchained. Today we get a few more answers as 4:33 has released a brand new trailer which you can scope out below as well as some details on a closed beta test they’ll be running in January.
Looking sweet, eh? So about that closed beta test. First of all, it’s only for Android, so iOS folks need not apply. Second of all the beta is only for players in South Korea, Taiwan, Japan and Hong Kong, so I’m guessing that rules out a big part of our audience even if they are on Android. It’s kind of a bummer too, as the rewards for the beta test participants sound pretty cool, as laid out on the pre-registration website. It’s possible you might be able to get in using a VPN or something, but there is a warning that “You may be excluded from participating in the CBT if you register through illicit methods." Yeah I’ll probably just go ahead and wait for the official release. The CBT will run from January 10th-17th and on the bright side this means DC Unchained is getting closer to being finished, so once we have some more details about it we’ll let you know.
