The leading online games operator in South-East Asia – Asiasoft Corporation, and Sony Online Entertainment, struck a new partnership to bring the award-winning massively multiplayer online game DC Universe™ Online in eight ASEAN countries – Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and VietNam.
This is one of the biggest partnership in the region I have seen! In previous years, regional distribution was always only for Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and VietNam. Today, Cambodia and Myanmar joins their ASEAN brothers (and sisters) in a new adventure.
This international partnership grants Asiasoft exclusive PC publishing rights for DC Universe Online in all eight countries. It includes providing dedicated servers, local customer support, and payment gateways. Utilizing a free-to-play model, DCUO players are granted basic access to the game free-of-charge so they can choose to play in a way that suits them best.
“Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and the entire roster of DC Entertainment heroes and villains are among the most recognizable icons in the world. By bringing DC Universe Online to South-East Asia, more people than ever will be able to gear-up and fight alongside their favorite characters,” said Louis Figueroa, Senior Vice-President, Business Development, Sony Online Entertainment. “Asiasoft will provide high quality player support ensuring the DCUO community continues to thrive throughout Asia and beyond.”
The heroes and villains, are coming in the region later this year.
