SOE has released a new trailer for DC Universe Online showing off the Smallville group combat Alert.

Smallville should sound familiar. It’s the boyhood home of Superman.

In the Alert, Lex Luthor is performing a diabolical experiment and you must either let him continue, or stop him before it does more damage to the sleepy town. Watch and see for yourself what happens.

SOE has all sorts of monthly plans for the MMO, and the firm’s head John Smedley promises it will not cost extra.

DC Universe Online launched in the US earlier in the week on both PC and PS3, and Sony added two extra servers for it yesterday to handle all the PvP going on in it.

The game launches today in the UK.
