DC Universe Online gets Green Lantern 'this summer'

First download pack for SOE's MMO on its way

Sony Online Entertainment has confirmed that the first downloadable content pack for DC Universe Online will go live 'this summer' on PC and PS3.


The "Fight for the Light" DLC pack will introduce the Green Lantern into the superhero mix, complete with his light power set.

New gameplay scenarios will also let you come into contact with other Green Lantern characters and content. Here's a list of them from SOE:

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.

Sony Computer Entertainment Online reduced the cost of subscribing to its MMOs, as well as the price of the SOE Station Pass, as part of its 'make good plan' following PSN-like hacks last month.
