If you’re a DC Universe Online fan who’s been waiting for more reasons to bash your fellow heroes and villains over the head, you’re in luck.
The next DLC patch for the game, The Last Laugh, and will be “purely for the players that like to take the fight to each other in DCUO‘s amazing PvP combat,” according to Creative Director Jens Andersen.
Safe House Battles will pit teams of four heroes and villains against each other in one of three task-oriented scenarios, which sound remarkably like instanced battlegrounds in other MMOs. If those aren’t enough, then try the eight-on-eight Headquarter Battles, sure to be full of multiplayer mayhem.
In addition to the PvP arenas, The Last Laugh adds a new weapon, the Shield, as well as two new characters, Amon Sur and Kilowog, for Legends PvP.
The Last Laugh will go live in June and be free for Legendary players and available for purchase by Free and Premium players.
The new PvP formats should really help revitalize what has been, at least in this player’s opinions, a rather moribund PvP scene. Do you think you’ll give DCUO’s PvP a try, now that it offers these “modern” advances?
