Would you like appropriate movie tie-in content in your MMOs

Post by TheHidden01 on Thu May 23, 2013 1:06 pm



I don't know if SOE has any plans to capitalize on the wave of Superman hype sweeping the nerdosphere on account of Zack Snyder's upcoming Man of Steel film. The firm's DC Universe Online title features the big blue boy scout rather prominently, of course, and the timing seems right if there aren't a bunch of legal stumbling blocks.

SOE has done movie tie-ins with an MMO before, way back in 2005 when its Rage of the Wookiees expansion added a bunch of Episode III-themed content to Star Wars Galaxies. Last summer, though, the firm didn't really acknowledge Christopher Nolan's final Batman film in DCUO, so it may not be in the cards for Supes either.

Regardless of what actually happens, would you like to see appropriate movie tie-in content in certain MMOs? Or do you prefer to keep the properties separate?

For me it really depends on what the game is and what the lore is.

The thing with Nolan's Batman and even the new Superman is that they are different to the current characters in DCUO. The characters in DCUO have their own timeline, their own lore, and perhaps they can run promotions seperate to the lore for getting the game, or even adding legendary characters perhaps, but in terms of actual lore affecting moves they can't really do it.

That is, if the intend on following the lore.

If the lore permits in other games, it's always smart business to adapt to current trends.
