DC Universe Online getting Halloween-themed DLC

By Dave Cook, Tuesday, 2 October 2012 08:53 GMT

DC Universe Online developer SOE has revealed a Halloween-themed DLC pack called The Witching Hour. It adds new costumes, missions and a story arc into the mix. There’s even a Halloween masquerade party. Dress sharp.

The plot – which has also been posted on the official DCUO blog – sees Klarion the Witch Boy stealing powers of other heroes and raising hell on the streets of Gotham. He’s been throwing fiendish parties and tricking civilians to attend. Actually, he doesn’t sound that bad at all.

You can crash the party and do battle with Klarion, as well as check out lots of new gear for your hero. It’s like some superhero cosplay mash-up.

The content will go live on the DCUO PC Test server first, as part of Game Update 19 soon. Then it will roll out to the public servers nearer Halloween. No specific dates have been released but as always, we’ll report on them as soon as they arrive.

Thanks Massively.
