JOIN THE GREEN LANTERN OR SINESTRO CORPS TODAY WITH THE FIRST DOWNLOADABLE CONTENT PACK FOR DC UNIVERSE ONLINE
SAN DIEGO – September 7, 2011 – Sony Online Entertainment LLC (SOE) today announced the first downloadable content (DLC) pack for DC Universe Online (DCUO), “Fight for the Light” is now available. Featuring favorite DC Universe hero, Green Lantern and the introduction of the game’s seventh power set, Light, the new DLC pack is now available for download on both the PC and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
In times of great need, the Green Lantern and Sinestro Corps can give out “reservist rings” to worthy heroes or enthusiastic villains who will help restore the balance of the universe for their side; these players can be deputized into either Corps and fight alongside legendary ring-bearers. In addition to the new light power set, DCUO players will also be able to interact with characters and missions based on the Green Lantern mythos in all-new gameplay scenarios.
S.T.A.R. Labs – Deep within S.T.A.R Labs, Brainiac seeks to create an experimental device that will allow him to harness the power of the emotional spectrum, the source behind the Lantern Corps’ rings. This attack throws the Lantern Corps into chaos, and players must join a fragile truce between the Green Lanterns and the Sinestro Corps to bring the powerful devices back under S.T.A.R. Labs’ control.
Once players have destroyed Brainiac’s destructive device, it unleashes a backlash of power, causing the Green Lanterns, Sinestro Corps and Red Lanterns to go crazy unleashing a series of attacks throughout the universe. This sudden explosion of power creates massive chaos which leads to clashes between the two sides in Coast City and on Oa, and the players are required to join the battle in order to help in restoring order to these zones.
Coast City Alert (4-player) & Duo (2-player) – Players must battle their way through the “City Without Fear” to Ferris Aircraft, the home of ace test pilot Hal Jordan. Here they face the unbridled rage of the Red Lantern Corps in a showdown to save the city and the Universe.
Sciencells Prison – On the Green Lantern Corps’ home planet Oa, heroes will join Guy Gardner to stop a prison break that threatens to release the most fearsome prisoners of the Green Lantern Corps. Villains will fight alongside Sinestro as he attempts to release the Green Lantern Corps’ greatest foes and retrieve the evil Lyssa Drak from her emerald-powered prison cell.
Green Lantern offers another exciting superhero for PC and PS3™ players to join forces with in their epic battles online, following DCUO’s ongoing combat missions featuring other DC Comics legends such as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Joker and Lex Luthor.
DC Universe Online’s “Fight for the Light” DLC pack is now available in the U.S. for download for free for all players with an active DCUO account. The “Fight for the Light” DLC pack requires the DC Universe Online software and an active DCUO subscription in good standing.
