PS3 and PC MMO DC Universe Online
is looking to capitalize on the hype behind the recent Green Lantern
film. The game's first downloadable content, "Fight for the Light," stars Hal Jordan and will arrive this summer.
"Fight for the Light" adds a new "Light" category of superpowers for players to wield. It also includes new gameplay scenarios starring Green Lantern and some of the other characters from his comic books:
- 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.
"Fight for the Light" will cost $9.99 to download. The first screenshots for this new content are below.
