DC Universe Online Launches Hand of Fate DLC Next Month
New downloadable content is heading to DC Universe Online this September. The superhero MMORPG will be receiving its fifth DLC pack, Hand of Fate, which returns the developer spotlight on PvE content.
A torrent of “high-level, team-focused operations” and “exhilarating new side missions” will be flooding the popular free online rpg, said developer Sony Online Entertainment in a release.
“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."
Also arriving to the scene are utility belt attachments, which provide at least two additional trinket slots. Some will even have upgradable slots. “Utility Belt Attachments give players more flexibility and options in the heat of combat without having to swap out items,” said SOE, referring to the clunky item-swapping experience in what is largely a smooth, fast-action online rpg.
Magic-powered Legends Characters also become available for play in Hand of Fate, including classic arcane conjurers like The Lord of Order, Doctor Fate and Felix Faust. Head to the Hand of Fate preview site for screenshots and more information.
