DC Universe Online Gets More DLC

May 8th, 2012 by Crowbar Comments

DC Universe Online is a MMO on the PS3 and PC based off the DC Comics universe. Players can create their own superhero or villain and battle it out against the characters from DC Comics. So far three DLC packs have been released, Lightning Strikes (The Flash), Battle for Earth (Batman), and Fight for Light (Green Lantern). The newest DLC for DCUO is titled, The Last Laugh and it will feature the antics of The Joker. A lot is contained within. Here is the rundown.

The Last Laugh will include an all-new weapon, hours of multiplayer gameplay in the Safe Houses and Headquarters, and new Legends PvP characters:

  • The Shield - Players can unleash this vicious new weapon to bash their opponents, or hurl it to take them down from a distance.

  • Safe House Battles – No one is safe now that heroes and villains can invade each other’s Safe Houses in these four on four battles:

  • Graviton Technology Recovery – Players will be tasked with unscrambling teleporter codes that The Joker has mixed into fragments. Located at the Watchtower or Hall of Doom, players must retrieve eight code fragments to successfully rebuild useable teleporter codes.

  • The Rescue – Heroes must rescue hostages, while Villains will be freeing arrested criminals from opposing Safe Houses.

  • Bomb Disposal – Thanks to The Joker, the encryption on the Email terminals has changed and can only be bypassed by the robot he provided. Players must gain control of the robot and either upload the data to their HQ or add new encryption to keep their enemies and The Joker away from it.

  • Headquarter Battles – In this two-part crusade, 16 players — eight heroes and eight villains — will face off for the ultimate player reward. At the request of Superman, heroes must take over the Hall of Doom, while villains, egged on by The Joker, will breach the Watchtower in order to create chaos.

  • Legends Characters - Combat illuminates with the introduction of the first light-powered Legends for multiplayer combat. Players will soon have access to Kilowog, a Green Lantern, and Amon Sur, a member of the Sinestro Corps.  4

DCUO’s The Last Laugh will be available for free for the Legendary members and available for purchase for free and premium players via PSN and PC.
