DCUO 'The Flash' DLC coming December 6

Includes new powers, gears and characters

Sony Online Entertainment has confirmed the latest downloadable content update for DC Universe Online will be available from December 6.


Titled 'Lighning Strikes', the content update is centred around The Flash and will introduce a new map, some fresh electricity based powers, characters and items.

The DLC will be free for subscribers and cost $9.99 for everyone else.

Here's the full list of updates.

Central City: An all-new map that offers players a more open world experience that provides on-going gameplay, with solo and group missions.
The Flash Museum Duo: Players can now experience the Central City of today and tomorrow. In The Flash Museum Duo, players can travel back in time to the very moment when Barry Allen became The Flash and battle foes inside the Central City Police Station!
Electricity Powers: Players now have the opportunity to get the new Electricity Power set for current and new characters. The new Electricity Power set allows players to leverage the lightning power of electricity and use new types of attacks in combat. Electricity Powers include the Tesla Ball, which creates a floating ball of electricity that zaps nearby enemies; the Shockwave, which shoots streams of electric bolts at enemies; and Ionic Drain, which drains energy from the environment to replenish a player's health while simultaneously damaging surrounding enemies.
New Gear: Players can earn all-new gear sets including the new Zoom-inspired gear set for villains, and the new Black Lightning-inspired gear set for heroes.
New Characters: Lightning Strikes brings players new iconic DC Universe characters including Livewire, Black Lightning, The Top, The Trickster, Static and more. New characters - such as Livewire - will be featured as new "Inspired By" options for players who can choose to create a new character inspired by some of DC Universe's legendary characters. Additional new characters - such as Black Lighting - serve as a bounty mission that players can fight if they choose to be a villain.

DC Universe Online became a free-to-play game last month, helping it quickly attract over a million new players.
