We have gotten a lot of feedback from gamers asking for an opportunity to play without a subscription requirement. So, that got us thinking about how to offer access to the game in a way that allows gamers to play their way.

We wanted something that would give players options. We know different types of gamers are playing - and want to play - DCUO, and we want each person to be able to play in a way that best fits their style. That's why we've created three levels of access to the game:

To quote: Greetings from San Diego Comic-Con! Here on the show floor we're happy to be showing DC Universe Online's first expansion pack - Fight for the Light.

Light powers have been a huge fan request since before launch, and we've created an entirely new power set from the ground up with new abilities that deliver on the power fantasy of wielding light constructs in combat.

We've put way over-the-top weapons that you could only imagine right into your hands! We've worked hard to build on the existing gameplay mechanics that players love, and to apply them in unique ways that give the new powers a look and feel all their own.

Exercising your creativity and bringing your imagination to the fight is a huge part of being a Lantern, and we wanted to bring that feeling to our players. With light, players will now be able to combine weapon-based combos and superpower abilities in way that just feels right for a Lantern.
