Sony Online has just announced the War of Light DLC trilogy that takes DC Universe Online players on an all-new storyline introducing the Blue Lantern Corps as well as a new power set.
It's split across three parts with the first, now available, introducing the red light of rage affecting tank classes and berserker-like abilities. Metropolis has been transformed.
The Lanterns have destroyed the connection between emotions and their colour spectrum, which means Metropolis is in peril with emotions running wild.
"Players are getting more than just a new storyline with this DLC. We transformed Metropolis for the War of the Light trilogy and created new, expandable environment and content – separate from the original – for players to explore,” said Jens Andersen, Senior Creative Director for DC Universe Online.
“In War of the Light Part I both heroes and villains can utilize Rage powers, a unique and challenging power set that offers a new tanking mechanic, adding yet another dimension to fights. It looks amazing and I’m looking forward to players mastering the Red Lantern-inspired power.”
There are new legendary PvP characters available with War of the Light – Part 1, such as Red Lantern Atrocitus and Blue Lantern Saint Walker. More should be added through the trilogy.
War of the Light – Part I highlights:
▪ New rage power – The new power set in the game is created from the red light of rage and can be used both for good and for evil. In the case of heroes and villains with tank powers, their skills will take on berserker-like characteristics.
▪ New 4-player operations – Strange color fogs have appeared and triggered a new War of the Light, and downtown Metropolis, Mogo and Ranx are caught right in the middle of it. With the help of friends such as Hal Jordan and Kyle Rayner (heroes) or Hank Henshaw and Sinestro (villains), players will have to get to the bottom of this mysterious fog.
▪ New 8-player operations – In these new raids, which take place on Mogo and Ranx, the investigation of the fog will result in a confrontation between the Green Lantern and Sinestro Corps.
▪ New legendary PvP characters – War of the Light - Part I presents two new lanterns – the violent Atrocitus and the agile Saint Walker. New gear and collections.
