DC Universe Online- Screen Shots Posted

If you are looking for an action-based MMO to explore the worlds of DC Comics’ superheroes and villains, Sony Online’s Austin studio is working on giving it to you in DC Universe Online.

Working in collaboration, comic veterans Jim Lee (the game’s Executive Creative Director), Ale Garza, Carlos D’Anda, and Scott Iwahashi, are teamed with EverQuest developers, Chris Cao and Shawn Lord, to create the game which is slotted for a December 2009 release, IGN reports.

With an eye towards being both PC and next generation console based, Lee describes the genre as a “kick-ass hybrid between a traditional MMO and a first-person action console game.”

Check out the recently released screen shots and the video of concept art for the project.
