‘Fight for the Light’ with the Green Lantern in the latest DC Universe Online DLC
We’ve seen the likes of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman battle against the forces of evil in Sony Online Entertainment’s DC Universe Online. Now you can add Hal Jordan aka the Green Lantern to the list.
In the latest DLC offering for DCUO, “Fight for the Light” introduces players to the new light power set, allowing them to create their own Lantern-inspired characters.
In addition, you will be able to embark on three missions surrounding various heroes and villains from the Green Lantern universe. They include:
- S.T.A.R. Labs – Deep within S.T.A.R Labs, Brainiac seeks to control experimental devices that will allow him to harness the power source behind the Lantern Corps’ rings. This attack throws the Lantern Corps into chaos, and players must join a fragile truce between the Green and Yellow Lantern Corps to bring the powerful devices back under S.T.A.R. Labs’ control.
- Coast City – Players must battle their way through the “City Without Fear” to Ferris Aircraft, the home of fighter ace 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 with Guy Gardner to stop a prison break that threatens to release the most feared 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.
“The Green Lantern has been a mainstay for DC Comics fans for more than 60 years, and is a fan favorite among our players,” said Mark Anderson, Game Director of DC Universe Online. “We’ve listened to the feedback, and fans can now create their own Lantern-inspired characters including the use of light powers.”
With the recent release of Green Lantern in theaters, now would seem the perfect time to unleash Hal Jordan in DCUO. It’s also great to see the MMO title continue to receive support from SOE. We know subscription-based games can be a tough sell, especially when it only takes a few days for top level players to complete all there is to do.
“Fight for the Light” will be available later this summer on both PS3 and PC for $9.99.
