11w ago - DC Universe Online Executive Producer Larry Liberty shared details today on new characters, operations and more below.

To quote: The War of the Light has begun! The first of a three-part series of DLC Packs, War of the Light Part I will incorporate several of the fantastic additions to the Green Lantern canon of the past few years.

We'll be adding even more Green Lantern depth to DC Universe Online over the course of the trilogy. Part I will feature new four-player and eight-player Operations, new Legends characters, and a new Red Lantern-inspired power - Rage.

New Operations

Launching with War of the Light Part I is a new version of Metropolis, separate from the version in the core game. Set just after the events of Braniac's Battle for Earth, it will be the canvas on which the entire War of the Light Trilogy of DLCs will be drawn.

In part one, mysterious colored mists have appeared in the city. The mists are beginning to alter the behavior of the citizens of Metropolis, causing them to exhibit emotions linked to those colors: topaz elicits fear, crimson mist - rage, azure - hope, emerald - determination, and purple - love.

The various Lantern Corps have come to Earth to determine what connection these mists have with the Emotional...
 

Video: 007 Legends Celebrates, PS3-Exclusive Multiplayer Characters

78w ago - Eurocom Product Manager Rob Matthews has posted up a 007 Legends video today celebrating Bond history with PS3-exclusive multiplayer characters!

To quote: 007 Legends is a videogame celebration of the James Bond film franchise's 50th anniversary, featuring five classic Bond movie-inspired missions along with a downloadable mission based on the next Bond film, Skyfall.

Skyfall is an integral part of 007 Legends story, the action from the film bookends the other missions and we've built the overarching narrative of the game around a pivotal event that occurs early on in the film.

EON Productions, the production company who produce the James Bond films, have been fantastic partners to work with, granting us exclusive behind-the-scenes access to many of the film's stunts and action sequences, allowing us to recreate those breathtaking moments you'll see on the big screen within the game as fully interactive segments within the game.

During the Skyfall mission, we visit two striking locations that have been faithfully recreated from the film, as well as some fantastic acting talent including Daniel Craig as Bond that will appear on the big screen when the film is released on November 9th, 2012.

DC Universe Online Offers New PS3 Characters and Holiday Items

122w ago - Sony Online Entertainment Executive Director of Development Lorin Jameson announced today news of new PS3 characters and holiday items arriving to fans in DC Universe Online.

To quote: Hope you're enjoying the most wonderful time of the year - the holiday gaming season!

One of the chief perks of a massively multiplayer online game is that the developers have a lot of freedom to make changes to the world, including creating special events throughout the year.

In DC Universe Online, we've just begun our new holiday-themed event Season's Greedings, which gives players fun new things to do set in a festive new look. As you make your way around Gotham City and Metropolis, you'll see that both are decked out in celebration of the season. But that's only the beginning!

All players are able to take part in a fun Holiday event starring our newest DCUO character, Larfleeze, the leader of the Orange Lantern Corps. Orange Lanterns? Yes, the Orange Lanterns, much like the Sinestro Corps or the Red Lanterns, are rivals of the Green Lanterns and are powered by the orange light of avarice, aka "greed."

Being a greedy little guy, it makes sense that Larfleeze wants all of the holiday presents for himself. As the player, it's up to you to track down the stolen presents, battle...
 

Video: Sega Unveils New Yakuza: Dead Souls Trailer Characters

124w ago - Community Manager Kellie Parker at Sega of America has unveiled the characters today in the new Yakuza: Dead Souls video trailer below.

To quote: You may have heard that Yakuza: Dead Souls is coming to PlayStation 3 in March 2012. Like Yakuza 4, the game will let you play as four characters, including two never-before-played fan favorites: Goro Majima and Ryuji Goda. It's a Yakuza experience like none other, because this time, you'll be fighting a horde of blood-thirsty zombies.

The undead are multiplying and filling the streets of Tokyo's red light district. The area is quarantined quickly, but degenerates into a district full of terror, panic and devastation. Survivors try to flee the city, but four men rise up to protect those they care most about. If you think zombies are bad, meet the Yakuza.

Playable for the first time in Yakuza: Dead Souls, Goro Majima is nuts about zombie movies. He's so excited to be killing off zombies that when you're playing as Majima, you'll be picking fights with zombies, instead of just merely defending yourself. Now that's badass.





You probably thought Ryuji Goda was dead after Yakuza 2. But you'd be wrong, and not because he's a reanimated zombie back to munch your...
