Lettre du directeur créatif : le DLC 10

Ecrit par Coxie, le 26-03-2014

Jens "Spytle" Andersen, directeur créatif pour DCUO nous propose une lettre sous forme de teasing pour le DLC 10 : Amazone Fury - Part I dont l'arrivée ne serait tarder.
Il nous plante le décor pour nous faire patienter en attendant les streamings qui devraient nous en apprendre beaucoup plus sur les nouveautés à venir comme l'arrivée du TIER 6 par exemple.

Et si vous êtes du genre impatient, en attendant pour que le temps passe plus vite, découvrez l'update 36 sur le serveur de TEST. (infos en anglais)

Citation

Bonjour DCUO !

Dans son projet de numérisation du multivers, Brainiac a créé trois avatars, chacun associé à une puissante liaison de technologie, de méta et de magie. C'est la création de l'avatar de magie à Thémiscyre, hors des portes du Tartare, qui a engendré cette situation. Furieuse à propos de l'attaque de Paradise Island, Hippolyte, reine des Amazones, prépare silencieusement sa riposte. Tenant le monde des mortels pour responsable de l'arrivée de l'infestation de Brainiac sur ces côtes, elle décide que le temps de la paix allait laisser la place au temps des guerres et des morts.

Dans Amazon Fury partie I, vous vivrez les débuts d'une attaque totale des Amazones sur Gotham City, l'entrée vers le Nexus de réalité et la source de la puissance de Brainiac sur la Terre. Mais le conflit a scindé la civilisation Amazone, et une guerre civile a éclaté. Wonder Woman s'oppose à l'invasion menée par sa mère. Les Amazones se sont divisées entre les rangs de leur reine et de leur princesse. Quel camp allez-vous rejoindre dans le combat qui débute à Gotham City ?

Nous sommes très heureux d'ouvrir cette trilogie et d'ajouter un nouveau chapitre aux scénarios déjà formidables opposant Wonder Woman à Circé que vous pouvez vivre dans DC Universe Online. Quel tournant l'histoire va-t-elle prendre dans les parties II et III ? Je peux déjà vous assurer que leurs dimensions seront épiques. Nous sommes impatients de commencer ce voyage avec vous tous. Pour ma part, j'ai hâte de montrer l'incroyable travail qu'a effectué l'équipe lors des futurs streamings en direct, alors restez à l'affût, car vous allez adorer ce que vous allez découvrir.

Combat Balance Changes

As part of our ongoing balance initiatives and to give us a solid foundation for the future, many changes have been made to combat and Powers. For details, please see the Combat section below.

Hide the Heads-Up Display (HUD) during Gameplay

We have added an option in the Settings menu that allows players the option to turn off the appearance of their HUD during gameplay. This should allow for even more epic video and screenshot creations!

Tier 6 Research and Development

With Game Update 36, Research and Development enters Tier 6! Many of these items will not be available to players until Amazon Fury Part I is available.

Combat
-Jump Canceling Changes:

oChanneled powers and abilities with durations can be canceled by jumping, allowing you to end the ability early without being stuck in an animation for potentially several seconds at a time. The behavior of jump canceling has changed. When jump canceling an ability, you still end the ability instantly and can move instantly, but you may not begin attacking again until you reach the animation “dovetail” for that ability. The dovetails for these abilities vary from between 0.8 and 1 second.

oSee the note below for the "Animation Consistency Pass" for information about specific abilities.
-Weapon Traits Changes

oTwo-Handed

§Hammer Throw now executes much more quickly and is now on par with other range hold attacks. In addition the Two-Handed ranged tap attack now executes much more quickly, is no longer a block breaker, and is no longer vulnerable to interrupt.

oBrawling

§Stomp Smash now executes much more quickly and is now on par with other range hold attacks. In addition the Brawling ranged tap attack now executes much more quickly, is no longer a block breaker, and is no longer vulnerable to interrupt.

oBow

§Long Draw now executes much more quickly and behaves like a standard hold range attack.

oRifle

§ Rifle Shot now causes additional damage, causes block break instantly, hits multiple enemies, and generally behaves like a hold range attack.

§ Grenade Launcher is now significantly faster, causes less damage, splits damage between all targets, is no longer a block breaker, is no longer immediately vulnerable to interrupt, and generally behaves like a tap range attack

-Animation Consistency Pass:

oAs part of ongoing balance improvements, a balance pass on all combat animations was performed. This should eliminate a wide variety of chronic complaints that are ultimately caused by animations that are either longer or shorter than they should be.

o Animations were standardized and will fall within the following ranges for the following types of abilities:

§Channeled and sustained abilities that can be jump canceled have a dovetail time of between 0.8 and 1.0 second.

§Weapon attacks, combo abilities and abilities that cause "Precision" based damage have a maximum dovetail time of 1.35 seconds.

§Tray abilities such as super powers, consumable items and trinkets have a dovetail time between 1.0 and 1.2 seconds.


oThe following abilities now reach their animation dovetails more quickly, allowing you to execute your next attack again more quickly than before:
