On Wednesday, the fourth DLC pack for DC Universe Online will hit the PlayStation Store. The DLC content is the first major update almost entirely focused on player versus player (PvP) combat. The Last Laugh will include hours of multiplayer gameplay in the Safe Houses and Headquarters, an all-new weapon, and new Light-Powered and Kryptonian Legends PvP characters.
The story revolves around one of our favourite villains, The Joker, who has decided that the heroes and villains have been working too closely to defeat Brainiac, so it’s time to create some chaos. He has hacked the security systems of the Hero and Villain Safe Houses and Headquarters, thereby allowing for invasion scenarios. The DLC introduces Safe House PvP battles, which are four-on-four battles that take place in new maps created using the in-game Safe Houses.
Also, there are three new game modes as part of the Safe House battles, each with its own unique strategies and objectives. The DLC also introduces Headquarter Battles, which are massive eight-on-eight battles that take place in either the Justice League Watchtower, or the Hall of Doom. In all of these battles, iconic DC characters and other NPCs will join the fray to add another challenging layer to the chaotic battles.
Lastly, the DLC pack adds a new brawler-style weapon, The Shield, which can be unleashed to take down opponents.
