Sony Online Entertainment has announced that DC Universe Online is getting a Halloween-themed DLC pack and a fancy masquerade party for players to get all dressed up for.
The pack is called The Witching Hour and it includes new costumes, missions, and a brand new story arc to playthrough. The DLC’s plot is below:
“Klarion the Witch Boy is stealing the powers of Heroes and Villains throughout the DC Universe and using them to cause quite a bit of Halloween mischief on the streets of Gotham City. Apparitions of all kinds are rising from the earth and tormenting trick-or-treaters. Heroes, it will be up to you to save the civilians, and Villains, well, you should be able to find some way to take…advantage…of the situation.”
Some details on the Midnight Masquerade party:
“It’s not Halloween without a great, ghoulish costume party, and Klarion is no slouch when it comes to throwing parties. He’s taken over a club in the city and casting spells on innocent civilians, forcing them to attend. Whether Hero or Villain, you are going to have good reason to crash this party. Be careful, though. The powers Klarion has stolen are from some of the world’s most powerful magic users, and look out for his cat, Teekl, too.”
The Witching Hour will soon be available on the public test server and should be going live towards the end of October along with the rest of Update 19.
