A few months ago, Daybreak Games announced that the popular massive online multiplayer franchise DC Universe Online would be coming to the Xbox One this spring. Well, it’s this spring and Xbox One fans of the DC universe can now join in the fun.

Here’s the statement from the developers (via Gamezone):

“Xbox One players can finally channel their inner Super Hero – or Super-Villain. Whether they want to run fast like The Flash, fly like Superman or wield ice like Captain Cold, we have more than five years’ worth of content to adventure through in DC Universe Online,” said SJ Muller, DCUO Creative Director. “DCUO is the only MMO set in the DC Comics universe, and its physics-based combat allows players to really feel like they are part of this action-packed Super Hero world.”

In case the MMO’s particulars have skipped your mind since the announcement, here’s a refresher:
