GAMING: The Hand of Fate

by

Those who are still playing DC Universe Online will be happy to learn that Sony is still putting out downloadable content. The next pack arrives in September, and features a Doctor Fate themed experience.

Press Release

Sony Online Entertainment LLC (SOE) today announced that Hand of Fate, the fifth downloadable content (DLC) pack for DC Universe™ Online (DCUO), will be available for download on the PC and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system this September. Hand of Fate will challenge players to return to Gotham City and Metropolis to experience high-level, team-focused Operations that span the iconic cityscapes. This DLC will also provide players with new Utility Belt Attachments and introduce magic-powered Legends PvP characters, as well as a multitude of exhilarating new side missions.

“Hand of Fate is serial in nature and features massive, team-oriented Operations,” said Jens Andersen, creative director on DC Universe Online. “We want to provide players with unique Hero and Villain experiences that immerse them in the most iconic DC Comics locations: Gotham City and Metropolis. What we hope players find in this DLC are emergent game play moments that challenge and reinvigorate them in the open world.”

Hand of Fate will throw players into hours of new adventures and content:

Utility Belt Attachments – Utility Belt Attachments will expand the trinket load-out from one to up to four slots, allowing players to equip multiple trinkets and consumables at once. All Utility Belt Attachments have at least two slots, while some also have upgradeable slots! Utility Belt Attachments give players more flexibility and options in the heat of combat without having to swap out items.

New Legends Characters – Hand of Fate will introduce the first arcane characters to Legends PvP. The Lord of Order, Doctor Fate and the treacherous sorcerer Felix Faust make their playable debut in Legends PvP as magic-wielding hand-blasters who conjure powerful spells and summon allies to their aid.

Operations – Six intense new episodes designed for group play – three Heroic and three Villainous – will be unleashed upon players under the direction of Doctor Fate and Felix Faust. Heroes will be called to help the Lords of Order protect innocent souls from the forces of darkness. Villains must complete perilous missions for Felix Faust to reap his rewards.

Side Missions – As players battle through the six Operations, numerous side missions will arise that take players all over Metropolis, Gotham City, and beyond, pitting them against previous adversaries and new dangers that have arisen.

DCUO’s Hand of Fate DLC pack will be a free download for the game’s Legendary members and will be available for purchase for Free and Premium players via the PlayStation®Network, the in-game Marketplace, or for PC players via the DCUniverseOnline.com website.
