The Battle for Earth begins “soon” in DCUO
SOE has announced the third DLC pack for DC Universe Online, The Battle for Earth, “will soon be available” for download on PC and PS3.
The DLC features the new Earth Powers power set and tosses players into battle with Brainiac as well as a “shocking new threat” to the Universe.
“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,” said Jens Andersen, creative director for DCUO. “The Battle 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.”
Battle for Earth includes the follow:
- A ninth power set.
- A new chapter featuring a pair of legendary DC Universe figures from the future.
- New open world content such as new Duos and a new Courthouse Alert.
- Themyscira (Raid) – Experience a new Raid on Wonder Woman’s home island that pits players against Chimeric Brainiacs and, ultimately, the deadly Avatar of Magic. Players will fight alongside mythical creatures such as Cyclops, Hydra and Colossus, while simultaneously protecting key units of Amazons and Beastimorphs.
- South Gotham Brainiac Invasion (Raid) – Supercharged action continues as players battle Brainiac’s invasion force in the streets of South Gotham. Working to stop Brainiac’s Union – formed by the people trapped inside the bottled buildings – who are constructing Proto-Avatars to assault Gotham, players will be challenged to rise up and defend Earth against Brainiac’s final assault.
Upon release, the DLC will be free for Legendary members and available for purchase for Free and Premium players from PSN and through the in-game Marketplace on PC, as well as from the game’s official webiste.
