DC Universe Online Launches Part 1 of War of the Light DLC

Posted Tue, Jan 28, 2014 by Martuk

Legendary subscribers of DC Universe Online (DCUO) had the chance to experience the latest DLC, War of the Light Part 1, as part of early access last week. But today marks the official launch of War of the Light in NA, allowing Free and Premium players on the PC, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 to purchase the DLC to join the fight and utilize the new Rage power set. The DLC introduces new storyline set in an alternate version of Metropolis inspired by DC’s Lantern lore and also features the planets Mogo, the sentient Green Lantern Planet, and Ranx, the Sentient Sinestro Corps City.

In addition, the update also includes new 4 & 8 player Operations, new Feats, and two new Legends PvP characters with Saint Walker and Atrocitus.

"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 environments 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."

DCUO’s War of the Light Part 1 is available free to Legendary subscribers. Free and Premium players can pick it up for $9.99. EU players can expect the DLC to launch in their region tomorrow. In the meantime, check out the official patch notes for a full rundown of the latest content and changes.
