Part of the reason why I was previously so excited for SOE’s DC Universe Online was the prospect of creating my own superhero and giving him the powers that popular DC superheroes had. In my dreams, I pictured my hero having an amazing power ring that could create any light-based constructs, much like my favorite heroes of the universe, the Green Lantern Corps.
It looks like my dreams are reality now, as Sony has just announced “Fight for the Light”, DLC featuring the Green Lantern Corps and an all new seventh power set, called Light. With the new DLC you’ll receive new gameplay objectives in new settings such as S.T.A.R. Labs, Coast City, and the Sciencell Prisons on Oa, the home planet of the Corps.
That’s all well and good, but man, I’m excited to see how the “Light” power set will work. It most certainly won’t be quite as awesome as being able to construct ANYTHING you can think of, but as long as it’s still as badass as the powers of Hal Jordan and Co., I will be pleased. “Fight for the Light” will be available later this summer for the PS3 and PC for $9.99.
