Lagging behind the film’s release and subsequent hype, DC Universe Online has put a date on its Green Lantern content – and dropped the price tag.

CVG reports the new content pack, called Fight for the Light, will drop on September 6 and is completely free.

The pack was announced back in July, the expansion was originally going to be a premium add-on at $9.99 or local equivalent, but it’s gone free “as a way to thank loyal players”.

This is excellent news for keen players as the expansion adds in an entirely new power set – the Green Lantern’s trademark Light – which all will have access to.

The pack also features new characters and locations, as well as 16 new scenarios including a face off with the Red Lantern Corps.
