New DC Universe Online DLC: Amazon Fury Part I

DC Universe Online DLC: Amazon Fury Part I

Gotham is under siege! The first of a three-part series of DLC Packs, Amazon Fury Part I, will soon reveal that Wonder Woman’s mother, Queen Hippolyta, has allied with Circe and launched an attack on the world of man – starting with Gotham City. This is purportedly a response to the Brainiac attack on Wonder Woman’s homeland of Themyscira. This conflict pits mother against daughter, with Wonder Woman leading the Amazonian resistance to the Queen’s aggression. The flashpoint of the conflict is in central Gotham City, where Amazonian forces loyal to the Queen have encased the southern half of the city in a mystical barrier, and have started to destroy everything within. Heroes have joined forces with Wonder Woman and her Rebel army as they try to save Gotham City from Hippolyta’s brutal attack. Villains align themselves with Hippolyta and Circe to help advance the front lines of the battle and crush all who oppose them overtaking Gotham City.

New Open World Solo Missions

Players will travel to an alternate version of Gotham City – Gotham Under Siege. From there, Heroes and Villains will each have access to Daily Solo Missions and Bounty Missions. The bounty mission will direct players to one of four locations within Amazon-controlled Gotham City where they are charged with defeating an iconic boss. Heroes will combat Catwoman, Killer Croc, Mister Freeze, or Cheetah, while Villains will fight Donna Troy, Wonder Girl, Nightwing, or Supergirl.

Themyscira

Amazon Fury Part I’s Iconic Visions, Duos, and Alert all take place in Themyscira, also known as Paradise Island. This is one the biggest and the most beautiful instances we’ve ever seen in DC Universe Online. Fans of Wonder Woman will love what we’ve done with the place since Battle for Earth and will have a chance to see a lot more of the island than just the Gates of Tartarus.

Iconic Visions

Iconic Visions will allow players to assume the role of an iconic character in the DC Universe and play through a mission that is a memory of an important event related to that character. In this case, we’re focusing on Wonder Woman and Circe.

In Circe’s Trial, the player will experience the moment when Circe convinces Hippolyta to allow her to join the war against Gotham City. The player will relive this event through the actions of Circe. The player, as Circe, will have to fight, sneak, or manipulate her way through Themyscira and into the Hippolyta’s war.

During Wonder Woman’s Iconic Vision, Aegis of Truth, the Player will experience the moment when the Amazons of Themyscira splinter into two factions: one that remains loyal to Hippolyta and another that follows Wonder Woman’s rebellion. The player will relive this event through the eyes of Wonder Woman. As Wonder Woman, the player will confront Hippolyta, discover that she is bringing war to the mortals, and begin her rebellion.

Duos and Alert

Amazon Fury Part I brings two Duos and one Alert to DCUO as the war explodes across Paradise Island.

Duo – Port of Paradise

The players’ mission will be to strike against the enemy faction’s docks, crucial to the war effort. When things go awry, it will be up to players to win a decisive victory for their side.

Duo – Supply Lines

Supplying the fight in Gotham City is no easy task, and it’s where both sides are most vulnerable. Players will need to assist, defending supplies en route and taking on enemies attempting to stop them in the Warehouse Division.

Alert – Themyscira Divided

The Amazon civil war reaches its peak as Heroes launch an all out assault on the Loyalist forces of Hippolyta, and villains move to end Wonder Woman’s Rebel forces once and for all.

Weapon Mastery

Weapon Mastery will allow players to spend Skill Points to “master” one to three weapons, allowing them to transition from one weapon to specific weapon combos of another. The system will expand the depth of combat and add new opportunity to execute combos with even greater skill. Players will both look and feel badass as they take on Amazon Fury Part I’s new challenges.

Welcome to Tier 6

Amazon Fury Part I will bring with it a new gear tier – Tier 6. Not only will this gear reach new levels of power, but it will also continue the trend that we started with War of the Light Part I, focusing on slimmer-fitting gear styles. Speaking of style, we’re drawing from Amazonian heritage to create beautiful, streamlined armor and gear pieces.

Amazon Fury Part I is planned to launch this Spring. Stay tuned over the coming weeks to see all that we have in store!

Always looking forward to new DLC, but between weapon mastery and jump canceling being altered, I’m iffy on where that’s going to leave my Hard Light DPS powerset. We’ll see.

This game is interesting and all and i applaud you guys for the quality, but i might have to delete it. Every time you release new dlc, there is another 7 GB patch that i don’t want to download. Requiring people to download it even though they haven’t purchased it is annoying.

@4
I disagree with you, forcing a 7gb download on people who didn’t purchase it is still stupid.
I deleted this on Ps4 as I’m not risking placing a bigger HD in a new machine yet. It’s a decent game, but honestly it becomes repetitious relatively quick.

@5 Yeah but that’s how MMORPGs are and that’s exactly what DCUO is; a MMORPG. They “force” you to download the update because it’s part of the game world itself, wether you have access to it or not. You’re not the only one playing the game and running around in the game.

Don’t get me wrong, dude, I agree it gets annoying, but I know it’s an MMORPG and large patches to add in content is just part of the nature of said games. You deal with it. Don’t like it, don’t play MMORPGS I guess. I dunno what else to tell you *shrugs*

Liberen a los trofeos y hagan las descargas de actualisaciones en segundo plano.

I know that giant patches can be a pain, but the end of that is in sight. After the next major PS4 firmware update is released we’re expecting to see a dramatic reduction in patch sizes (once we release an update built against the new firmware/SDK). I don’t have a specific date just yet, but would expect this to happen within three months.

It’s a great game, and it’s free. I paid for subscription, and had to cancel due to my life taking over.

Gonna check out the new DLC.

    It’s not for sale in the PSN Store yet. We haven’t locked down a final date just yet – as soon as we have a final date locked down we’ll spread the word.

I would love to see a new weapon type such as the lasso or a sword and shield combo… Loving all the DLC, keep them coming!

    DLC 10 introduces a new feature called Weapon Mastery. It will allow players to become more proficient with their default weapon, or to “master” multiple weapons – up to three – and be able to combo from primary to secondary to tertiary weapons. This system will be exposed through an updated Weapons UI (Traits->Skills->Weapons).

Please in the War of Light: Part 2 DLC, let the new power be Blue Lantern and please please please make it a healing power. It would make sense considering green/yellow lantern is controller, red lantern is tank, so it would only be fair and make sense. Please and thank you!!!!
