Another expansion to DCUO has been announced, and coming this September the Hand of Fate DLC will challenge the Heroes of Villains of DCUO with all new team based missions.
“Hand of Fate is serial in nature and features massive, team-oriented operations,” said Jens Andersen, creative director on DC Universe Online. “We want to provide players with unique Hero and Villain experiences that immerse them in the most iconic DC Comics locations: Gotham City and Metropolis. What we hope players find in this DLC are emergent game play moments that challenge and reinvigorate them in the open world.”
The Hand of Fate DLC also adds new characters, items and missions to the mix;
Utility Belt Attachments – Utility Belt Attachments will expand the trinket load-out from one to up to four slots, allowing players to equip multiple trinkets and consumables at once. All Utility Belt Attachments have at least two slots, while some also have upgradeable slots! Utility Belt Attachments give players more flexibility and options in the heat of combat without having to swap out items.
New Legends Characters – Hand of Fate will introduce the first arcane characters to Legends PvP. The Lord of Order, Doctor Fate and the treacherous sorcerer Felix Faust make their playable debut in Legends PvP as magic-wielding hand-blasters who conjure powerful spells and summon allies to their aid.
Operations – Six intense new episodes designed for group play — three Heroic and three Villainous — will be unleashed upon players under the direction of Doctor Fate and Felix Faust. Heroes will be called to help the Lords of Order protect innocent souls from the forces of darkness. Villains must complete perilous missions for Felix Faust to reap his rewards.
Missions – As players battle through the six Operations, numerous side missions will arise that take players all over Metropolis, Gotham City, and beyond, pitting them against previous adversaries and new dangers that have arisen.
If you are a Legendary member on DCUO this will all be free this September. For regular members, The Hand of Fate DLC will be available for download via the Playstation Store or DCUO Marketplace.
