Sony Online Entertainment has revealed more information on their DC-infused MMO's next update, War of the Light Part I, set to introduce a brand-new storyline as well as the Blue Lantern Corps and a new power set, Rage, which can be used by both heroes and villains.
“In War of the Light Part I, lanterns of all colors have lost connection with their emotional spectrum entities. Following cryptic evidence, four Corps — Green, Blue, Sinestro and Red — converged on Earth determined to find their entities. The clash of Lantern Corps has resulted in a new war of light, centered in Downtown Metropolis and nearby sentient planets Mogo and Ranx. Players must team up with Hal Jordan or Sinestro in high-level multiplayer adventures to investigate the colored mists that have descended upon Metropolis and are affecting the citizens’ emotions.”
The update will also be giving players access to two new Legends PvP characters: Saint Walker and Atrocitus. If that wasn't enough, you'll also be getting new and reimagined environments in DC Universe Online such as changes to Metropolis and for the first time you'll be able to journey to Mogo, the sentient Green Lantern Planet, and Ranx, the Sentient Sinestro Corp City.
The first part of the trilogy DLC will be available for download on the PC, as well as the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 early next year. Find out more on the update through the official website
