Strange mists descend on Metropolis as the first part of DC Universe Online's (DCUO) latest DLC, The War of the Light, makes its way to live servers. The War of the Light Part 1 adds the new Red Lantern-inspired Rage power set for players, new Tier 5 Operations, two new Legends PvP characters with Atrocitus and Saint Walker, and the new Ranx and Mogo Command Centers. Additionally, players can watch as the War of Light erupts in a new version of Metropolis.

Strange colored mists are affecting civilians in Metropolis, and the Lantern Corps have been drawn to the city to investigate. Mogo and Ranx have appeared in the skies over Metropolis, already at war, and the fighting is pouring out into the streets in Downtown Metropolis Battlezone. The Green Lantern Corps and Sinestro Corps have been joined by the Blue Lantern Corps and Red Lantern Corps, and Heroes and Villains alike have been swept up in the conflict. New Bounties and Side Missions are available to players in their respective Command Centers.

Legendary subscribers of DCUO will be granted early access The War of the Light today. Free and Premium players can purchase the DLC when it officially launches on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014 (January 29th in EU).
