DC Universe Online Third DLC Pack Coming Soon
The battle for Earth just got a lot tougher for the heroes and villains of DC Universe Online mainly because SOE is making it tougher. The publisher announced today that the third DLC pack for DCUO will be arriving soon for PC and PS3.
The new content pack for DC Universe is appropriately called 'The Battle for Earth'. The DLC consists of new quests, powers and abilities as Brainiac and a new threat emerge. Jens Andersen, DC Universe Online Creative Director, Sony Online Entertainment commented in the press release, saying...
“With The Battle for Earth one war will come to a head, while another begins as we introduce a new chapter to the larger DCUO story,” ... “TheBattle for Earth also has so much new action to jump in to including a massive Raid where you fight Brainiac’s final Avatar – the Avatar of Magic, new Duos, a new Alert and lots of new fighting to do in South Gotham.”
The game is currently free-to-play, so the only thing you're losing in the process is some bandwidth and time. Assuming bandwidth and time aren't all that important to you.
Anyways, Legendary members will receive the content for free, where-as F2P and Premium members can purchase the new DLC from the Marketplace for a small fee.
You can check out a few new screenshots of the DLC below or visit the Official Website to learn more.
Battle For Earth Features:
• South Gotham Brainiac Invasion – Supercharged action continues as players battle Brainiac’s invasion force in the streets of South Gotham, the Courthouse Alert and new Duos.

• The Prime Battleground – The Battle for Earth storyline leads players in to an epic battle in which they must fight all three of Brainiac’s newly completed Prime Avatars, and then Brainiac himself. Heroes will fight for the safety of the Earth and its inhabitants, while Villains will want to defeat Brainiac and expand the influence of evil across the planet.
• Earth Powers – Rumble on to the scene and shake things up with DCUO’s ninth power set. Earth Powers can be used for both Tanking and Damage and features an exciting new Tanking mechanic that defers damage to a player’s constructs and automatons. Geokinesis abilities give players the ability to shape Earthen constructs to crush enemies and reinforce allies while Seismic abilities allow players to call mighty, Earth-shaking forces to rattle and daze opponents.
