Sony Online Entertainment has announced a fifth expansion for DC Universe Online, its free-to-play MMORPG for PC and PlayStation 3. Get details and shiny screens through the break.
The new pack, Hand of Fate, will be free to Legendary members, and is due in September. The core of the content is as follows:
- Utility Belt Attachments – Utility Belt Attachments will expand the trinket load-out from one to up to four slots, allowing players to equip multiple trinkets and consumables at once. All Utility Belt Attachments have at least two slots, while some also have upgradeable slots! Utility Belt Attachments give players more flexibility and options in the heat of combat without having to swap out items.
- New Legends Characters – Hand of Fate will introduce the first arcane characters to Legends PvP. The Lord of Order, Doctor Fate and the treacherous sorcerer Felix Faust make their playable debut in Legends PvP as magic-wielding hand-blasters who conjure powerful spells and summon allies to their aid.
- Operations – Six intense new episodes designed for group play – three Heroic and three Villainous – will be unleashed upon players under the direction of Doctor Fate and Felix Faust. Heroes will be called to help the Lords of Order protect innocent souls from the forces of darkness. Villains must complete perilous missions for Felix Faust to reap his rewards.
- Side Missions – As players battle through the six Operations, numerous side missions will arise that take players all over Metropolis, Gotham City, and beyond, pitting them against previous adversaries and new dangers that have arisen.
