We are the Green Lantern Corps – Fight For The Light
Coming out of SOE Fan Faire there was a big announcement made about DC Universe Online that will make a lot of people happy. They finally announced that the power set "Light" (which was in early beta but taken out for the release) will be introduced to the game for players who purchase the DLC "Fight for the Light". The cost will be $9.99 on PC and PS3 (yes I believe you have to buy it twice).
There will be two ways for your character to gain the Light powerset. You can create a brand new character and it will be available to you or if you have a character at level 30 you will be able to do a onetime respec to grant them the "Light" power.
- Seventh Power Set – Light (Hero: Willpower (Green Lantern Corps), Villain: Fear (Yellow Lantern AKA Sinestro Corps)
- All new characters will have it available
- Respec your level 30 character as Light wielders
- New Four-person Alerts – "S.T.A.R. Labs," "Coast City" and "Sciencells Prison (THIS IS ON OA PEOPLE!)."
- $9.99 cost scheduled for later this summer
- Guy Gardner (in "Sciencells Prison" Alert) and Atrocitus (in "Coast City" Alert) are added as NPCs to the game.
In times of great emergencies, power rings will duplicate themselves, recruiting temporary Lanterns to the cause. The story behind "Fight for the Light" is you are not becoming a fully fledged Green Lantern or joining the Sinestro Corps. You are instead being a recipient of an emergency ring.
Since you are not joining either the Green Lantern Corps or Sinestro Corps you are considered a "reservist" instead of a fully fledged Corps member. This means you will not have the iconic Lantern symbol. In fact there are two new Iconic Armor sets that are based on Sinestro and Hal Jordan with a blank white circle where the symbols should be.
If you are a Green Lantern fan (which we are… we even made our own GL Corps on the PS3) this is fantastic news. The respec option is good for us too. I know at least some of our Corps mates have already maxed out their characters and are waiting patiently for the DLC to be made available.
"In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil's might,
Beware my power… Green Lantern's light!"
