Sony Online Entertainment is introducing a three-part series of downloadable content for DC Universe Online, centered around Wonder Woman's homeland. The first, Amazon Fury Part 1, will take place in Gotham City as WW's mother, Queen Hippolyta, has launched an attack on the world of men. Heroes will work on protecting Gotham, while villains will ally with Circe instead to assault it.

While Sony Online Entertainment's MMOs are free-to-play, the company offers subscriptions, entitling players to a number of benefits. Starting April, the company plans on doing away with game subscriptions, giving all paid members access to premium content across all of their games.

The new SOE All Access plan includes memberships to all EverQuest games, including the upcoming EverQuest Next. In addition, it includes premium access to DC Universe Online, Planetside 2, and Dragon's Prophet.

During writer Geoff Johns' tenure on the Green Lantern books, the DC Universe had a brief, unyielding fascination with the color spectrum, resulting in seven different Lantern corps. DC Universe Online is ready to unleash this colorful attack on its fans with War of the Light Part I, set to deploy on January 28. However, Legendary members can start donning their red rings and begin spewing pools of Rage right now.

Now that DC Universe Online is out on PS4, it's time for Sony Online Entertainment to start cranking out more expansions. The next, 'War of the Light,' will introduce a brand new storyline and new power set.

War of the Light will have lanterns of all colors losing connection with their emotional spectrum entities. Four Corps--Green, Blue, Sinestro, and Red--are warring in Downtown Metropolis and the planets of Mogo and Ranx. Players will team up with either Hal Jordan or Sinestro to investigate the colored mists that are affecting citizens' emotions.

In preparation for the upcoming PS4 version of DC Universe Online (available at launch), Sony Online Entertainment has completely revamped the graphics of their free-to-play MMO. PS3 players will see some benefit, but the biggest impact will be seen on PlayStation 4 and PC.

DCUO executive producer Larry Liberty promises that Update 31 will offer a "sweeping, game-wide graphical upgrade," calling it "without a doubt the biggest technical update we have ever done." Specifically, the level of detail on textures has been revamped. "That's perhaps nowhere more obvious than when observing the Earth from the Watchtower," Liberty said.

When DC Universe Online releases for PS4 on launch day, it won't be a simple port of the existing PC/PS3 title. According to creative director Jens Andersen, the game's arrival on PS4 will feature over 2,000 updates designed to make it feel like a brand new experience, along with Vita Remote Play functionality and a new companion app.

Two pieces of news here. Firstly, the DC MMO is receiving a new update, Sons Of Trigon, that adds a Gotham City mission featuring either Wonder Woman or Circe, in an effort to defeat Trigon. And secondly, the word “Eighth” looks really weird when you type it out.
