In brightest day, in blackest night, or some time this summer, DC Universe Online will receive a $10 downloadable content pack revolving around the Green Lantern, Sony Online Entertainment announced today. Yes, DLC, not an expansion pack.
The $9.99 'Fight for the Light' pack will add a seventh power set for players, Light, along with new Green Lantern-y scenarios. It'll be released on both PC and PlayStation 3 this summer.
If you're a Green Lantern fan who felt let down by this summer's lackluster movie, at least now you'll be able to slip on a power ring yourself and live out your dreams. As long as those dreams involve inanimate, monochromatic objects--preferably weapons.
Here's what you can expect from Fight for the Light, in Sony Online Entertainment's own words:
- 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.
