DC Universe Online: Sons of Trigon DLC Launching Today

Larry Liberty's Avatar + Posted by Larry Liberty on Sep 03, 2013 // Executive Producer, DC Universe Online

Hello PlayStation fans. Starting today, our latest DLC pack — Sons of Trigon — will go live! For this eighth DLC, we’ve packed in brand new Celestial Powers, new solo and group adventures, and an amazing looking new open zone: the Gotham Wastelands.

Sons of Trigon picks up where the “Sins of the Father” storyline from the core game left off, with the demon lord Trigon ready to break free of his bonds, intent on destroying Earth. The influence of this powerful villain has already been felt across the world of DC Universe Online, and it will be up to you to either stop it or use it to your advantage.

Trigon Unleashed

Circe and Brother Blood were successful in releasing Trigon from his dimension, but the Sentinels of Magic were ready. They performed a counter-hex, placing a protective barrier around our realm. The barrier trapped Trigon between his world and ours, resulting in the creation of an in-between dimension — the Gotham Wastelands — a version of Gotham City that is rapidly approaching Hell. Players will see familiar Gotham landmarks, such as the Cathedral and Knightsdome, twisted, broken and corrupted by Trigon’s presence in this realm.

With Trigon at his most vulnerable, Trigon’s sons have come forth to vie for his power. The six sons represent six of the seven deadly sins: Wrath (Jared), Envy (Jesse), Lust (Jacob), Sloth (Jack), Gluttony (Julius), and Greed (James). Trigon’s sons seek the family reunion from Hell — to be joined with the seventh sin, Pride (Raven), and their father. But like any family reunion, it’s rife with sibling rivalry.

The sons vie for their father’s affection, all desiring that which Raven refused: to be his vessel and gain ultimate power. To strengthen the power of sin, the sons have sent demons to the mortal plane to abduct innocent souls. These souls are dragged through portals to the Gotham Wastelands, where they are tortured in order to fill the coffers of the sin demons. Once enough sin has been gathered, Trigon can be awoken from his forced slumber.

Meanwhile, Wonder Woman and the Titans are trying desperately to keep Raven from temptation, and to keep the children of sin from releasing their father, and endangering the entire universe. Circe and Brother Blood have their own desires to release Trigon, and will not let the sons interfere.

Small Group Content

Unlike our last DLC, Origin Crisis, Sons of Trigon will focus on small group content. By that, I mean that it will focus on Solo and Duo content rather than the Raids and longer Operations that were the soul of Origin Crisis. Sons of Trigon will also feature a fantastic four-player Alert — complete with our first “big boss” — Trigon himself.

Going forward, we intend to switch back and forth between large and small group content in each DLC. I know there are players that prefer one type to the other, and we don’t want them to wait too long for their favorite.

Celestial Powers

With Sons of Trigon, players get a new power, Celestial, which will grant the player the Healer Role at level 10. Celestial Powers are divine and demonic, light and dark, holy and unholy. The key to effective play is to achieve equilibrium through spiritual balance combos, simply called Celestial Combos. These leverage the same type of combos that are used in our weapons. Celestial Combo abilities are more powerful than default powers, and can be combined to devastating effect. Celestial is ideal for anyone that always wanted a more active healer — a battle healer, destined for the thick of combat.

I enjoy the lust duo out of all the new content, the cutscenes are great and the fact they randomly have Cupid trapped in a cage.

We are targeting PS4 launch for DC Universe Online. We are also planning on supporting seamless transfer of characters from PS3 to PS4. We will also have a common server for PlayStation players – so you won’t have to leave your friends and League behind.

I’ve always been curious about this game (looks good) but it takes up over 10GB and my PS3 is simply filled.

I’ll try it out on PS4.

I can’t wait for DCUO on PS4, I fell behind so I’m really not playing so much right now but I also wanted to know if you guys will make more CG cut scenes at least 1 for every major story arc DLC. I think that would be dope. Plus you guys should put that Fractured Future in the beginning of the Origin Crisis DLC. Little things like that would make people more interested in wanting to get DLC. I know it can’t be done for every DLC but at least I for every major would be nice

Hey SOE, do ya know what DC comic book fans really, really, really like? Artwork!!! Why SOE, in the years that DCUO has been out on the PS3 have you ONLY released just two wallpapers?! Where are the avatars? The dynamic themes? Where are the rest of wallpapers that you made available to the PC users years ago! You are a Sony publisher! Why don’t you step up and release some artwork to market your game!

Any entitlements (DLC and other marketplace items) will transfer over from PS3 to PS4. So, if you buy now you can always carry over to the PS4…
