Sony Online Entertainment is introducing a three-part series of downloadable content for DC Universe Online, centered around Wonder Woman's homeland. The first, Amazon Fury Part 1, will take place in Gotham City as WW's mother, Queen Hippolyta, has launched an attack on the world of men. Heroes will work on protecting Gotham, while villains will ally with Circe instead to assault it.
As detailed on the PlayStation Blog, the "Gotham Under Siege" map will serve as an alternate to the regular Gotham, and it will feature daily solo and bounty missions around the area. Heroes will fight against Catwoman, Killer Croc, Mister Freeze, and Cheetah, or and villains will battle Donna Troy, Wonder Girl, Nightwing, and Supergirl.
It will also introduce new instanced events in Wonder Woman's homeworld of Themyscira. These will include an Iconic Vision, in which you take control of Wonder Woman herself, or her enemy Circe, to gain more insight into the war from both angles. Duos and Alerts events will be available in Themyscira as well.
Finally, the Amazon Fury DLC will add Weapon Mastery, letting you master between one and three weapons and transition between different sets of combos. It will also introduce tier 6 gear, featuring stronger gear and a trend towards slimmer fits of armor that don't look quite so bulky.
Amazon Fury is set to kick off this spring, but Sony didn't nail down a more specific date.
