Nos confrères de mmorpg.com et de Massively viennent de répercuter l'annonce faîte par SOE lors de la Fan Faire d'une première extension pour DC Universe Online, appelée "Fight for the Light" (annonce confirmée par communiqué de presse un peu plus tard). Ce contenu, à la fois prévu sur PC et PS3, sera disponible "plus tard dans le cours de l'été" au prix de 9.99 $. Comme vous pouvez vous en douter au vu de son nom, ce DLC sera centré sur le Green Lantern Corps, avec un nouveau set de pouvoir à la clef (Lumière), la possibilité de créer son héros ou son vilain inspiré des Lantern Corps (les joueurs sont supposés être des Green ou Yellow Lantern Réservistes assistant l'unique Green / Yellow Lantern de chaque secteur spatial dans la crise qu'ils traversent actuellement sur Terre, avec leur pouvoir de leurs anneaux mystérieusement draîné) , des nouvelles armes à particules fonctionnant grâce au pouvoir de la Lumière, et ainsi de suite.

Le nouveau Game Director, Mark Anderson (remplaçant de Chris Cao) explique que le set Lumière permettra de canaliser le pouvoir des émotions (volonté chez les héros, peur chez les criminels) en méchas de lumière du type mitrailleuse, tronçonneuse, jet, ... qui sont de nouvelles armes qui apparaissent si le joueur déclenche le pouvoir correspondant, et avec lesquelles de nouveaux combos sont possibles. Le gros plus est que le joueur peut enchaîner l'exécution des combos débloqués en faisant apparaître les armes de lumière après avoir activé les pouvoirs correspondants, pour un effet dévastateur.

Les joueurs peuvent soit créer un nouveau personnage doté de ce Set, soit changer le set de leur personnage de niveau 30 pour utiliser à la place le set lumière. Il comprend 24 pouvoirs (12 normaux et 12 qui sont les nouveaux types d'armes), colorés en vert pour les héros et jaune pour les vilains. Sont aussi prévu plusieurs armures iconiques (y compris celles de Sinestro et Green Lantern).

Cette extension comprendra aussi trois nouvelles Alertes, dont un combat contre Brainiac dans les Star Labs (qui siphonne le pouvoir des anneaux des Lantern Corps, ce qui fait que vous serez assisté de Green Lantern et Sinestro !), un combat contre le Red Lantern Corps chez Ferris Aircraft, à Coast City (y compris contre Atrocitus lui-même !), et enfin, cerise sur le gâteau, un combat sur la planète Oa elle-même, dans lequel les héros tentent d'empêcher une évasion de prisonniers des Green Lantern, alors que les criminels assistent Sinestro justement pour qu'elle ait lieu ! Bref, pour la première fois, nous sortons carrément de la planète Terre (et de la base lunaire de H.I.V.E) pour aller combattre loin dans l'espace !
Vous pourrez aussi revisiter le contenu de Coast City en Duo, en plus de l'Alerte.

Jens Andersen, Creative Director, précise que les contenus payants futurs viendront en parallèle et pas à la place des Mises à jour gratuites, mais que comme ils sont payants, ils offriront plus de choses, dont de nouveaux sets de pouvoirs.

ATTENTION HUMANS OF EARTH: DC UNIVERSE ONLINE WANTS YOU FOR THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS!
SOE Expands the World of DC Universe Online with All-New Downloadable Content Pack
SAN DIEGO - July 11, 2011 - Sony Online Entertainment LLC (SOE) today announced the first Downloadable Content (DLC) pack for DC Universe Online (DCUO), "Fight for the Light." Featuring DC Comics favorite The Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) and the introduction of the game's seventh power set - Light, the new downloadable content will be available this summer for both PC and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
"The Green Lantern has been a mainstay for DC Comics fans for more than 60 years, and is a fan favorite among our players," said Mark Anderson, Game Director of DC Universe Online. "We've listened to the feedback, and fans can now create their own Lantern-inspired characters including the use of light powers."

In addition to the new light power set, players will also be able to interact with Green Lantern based characters and content in DC Universe Online in these all-new gameplay scenarios:

S.T.A.R. Labs - Deep within S.T.A.R Labs, Brainiac seeks to control experimental devices that will allow him to harness the power source behind the Lantern Corps' rings. This attack throws the Lantern Corps into chaos, and players must join a fragile truce between the Green and Yellow Lantern Corps to bring the powerful devices back under S.T.A.R. Labs' control.

Coast City - Players must battle their way through the "City Without Fear" to Ferris Aircraft, the home of fighter ace Hal Jordan. Here they face the unbridled rage of the Red Lantern Corps in a showdown to save the city and the Universe.  

Sciencells Prison - On the Green Lantern Corps' home planet Oa, heroes will join with Guy Gardner to stop a prison break that threatens to release the most feared prisoners of the Green Lantern Corps. Villains will fight alongside Sinestro as he attempts to release the Green Lantern Corps' greatest foes and retrieve the evil Lyssa Drak from her emerald powered prison cell.

Green Lantern offers another exciting superhero for PC and PS3 players to join forces with in their epic battles online, following DCUO' s ongoing combat missions featuring other DC Comics legends such as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Joker and Lex Luthor.

DC Universe Online's "Fight for the Light" DLC pack will be available for download for $9.99 USD this summer for PC and PlayStation®3 players.
