SOE today announced the first mini expansion for DC Universe Online called “Fight for the Light”, which will be a Green Lantern themed update. I’m not surprised it being a Green Lantern themed content update, but I am surprised they didn’t line it up better with the release of the movie.
Fight for the Light will included a new Light powerset, as well as the ability for players to create their own Lantern based heroes and villains. The DLC will also add several new gameplay scenarios which are outlined below.
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 STAR 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 Corp’s 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.
An official release date has not yet been announced other then sometime this summer and it will cost $9.99.
