DC Universe Online ‘War of the Light Part One’ Announced for Early 2014

Posted on December 12, 2013 AT 05:14am

Sony Online Entertainment has announced that DC Universe Online‘s ninth DLC expansion, War of the Light Part One, will release early next year.

The expansion focuses on the war between the Lantern Corps, which will take place in a reimagined Metropolis and on their home planets of Mogo and Ranx. New operations will be added with the expansion, starring Hal Jordan, Sinestro, and other characters from the Lantern Corps.

“Over the years, Green Lantern has evolved a lot,” creative director Jens Andersen told Polygon. “The lore, the mythos — they’ve added new Lantern Corps that represent the emotional spectrum.

“Players will see all kinds of new characters straight out of the comic books from these corps making their way into DCUO.”

Both Heroes and Villains will also get access to a new power called Rage, which allows them to take damage and then deal it back to foes. SOE also confirmed that two characters, Atrocitus and Saint Walker, will be added to Legends PvP, and that players will be able to earn several new pieces of gear.

War of the Light will be released in three parts throughout 2014, and all three will be free for Legendary members. Free and Premium members will have to pay for each part as it is released.

DC Universe Online recently received a graphical overhaul to coincide with its release on PlayStation 4.
