We feel like we really deliver on this experience with our weekly playable comics.”

Based on DC’s comic-book universe, DC Dual Force allows players to experience epic-level combat strategy with their favorite DC Super Hero or Super-Villain – From Aquaman and Batman to The Joker and Lex Luthor – and everything in Between! In DC Dual Force, you pair your favorite with another Leader from the DC Universe, connecting super friends, like Batman and Wonder Woman, or creating unusual alliances, like Black Adam and… Superman? Then, you surround them with Recruits (other Super Heroes and Super-Villains) along with Actions themed to work well with your ultimate duo. In the end, playing your DC Dual Force deck feels like you’re in the middle of a fight themed to the Super Heroes (or Super-Villains) you’ve partnered with.
Beyond competitive PvP play, DC Dual Force uniquely allows players to experience classic comics by playing through portions of these stories in PvE play. For example, you can enter Justice League: Origin, and help our heroes defend Earth against Darkseid! New playable comics will be added each week to continue your solo-play adventure.
