Game Update 64 is now available, and it brings with it two potentially terrifying events if you don’t have your wits about you.

The Witching Hour

The Witching Hour, DCUO’s Fall Seasonal Event, has returned once again! It’s up to you, heroes and villains, to head to the streets of Gotham City and inside the Midnight Masquerade Nightclub and see if you can get a handle on the horrors that are haunting it. Heroes, you’ll look for the Phantom Stranger inside the East End Safehouse; villains, find Tala inside The Tap Room in Burnley. They will have further instructions for you!

Each day of the event, look for The Witching Hour in your Mission Journal; complete the mission and earn Spooky Bites, which can be used in Skeets’ Boo-tique for the latest in scare-wear, tricks, treats, and creepy items for your Base or League Hall. To queue for The Midnight Masquerade, go to your On Duty UI and look under the Events tab. The mission and the event are available to players at or above Level 10.

If you want to stock up on the latest items but don’t have quite enough Spooky Bites, visit the Marketplace! Spooky Bites can now be purchased and then used in game at Skeets’ Boo-tique.

And don’t forget to visit The Vault during The Witching Hour. It’s a bit spookier in there than you’re used to!

In 2016, The Witching Hour brings with it new Base Items, Feats, and Styles! If you get any for your character, make sure you share screenshots with us on Twitter (@DCUO) or on the forums!

Survival Mode: Oan Sciencells

You have faced the worst of the universe before, but not like this! With the return of Survival Mode: Oan Sciencells, you’ll be faced with stronger foes and increased challenges. Queue up and see how long you can last against unending waves of the slew of universal criminals threatening to escape. Players can queue up for Survival: Oan Sciencells in the Event tab (if they meet the CR requirement).

With GU64, Survival Mode: Oan Sciencells will feature new Exo Pants and Custom Exo Back for rounds 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10!

Requirements: 8 Players, Minimum CR 173 (175 Recommended).

Aura Pack II + Spooky Bites

New Vapor Aura variants and Spooky Bites (seasonal currency) are now available in the Marketplace! Visit this article for all the details!

Saturday, September 17, 2016 is an auspicious day in this part of Gotham City (and the whole DC Universe). It’s Batman Day! Batman appears in many forms in DCUO; revisit our feature from last year to see him in his many in-game forms.

This year, in honor of the truly legendary Dark Knight, we have some special happenings inside DCUO! But rather than limit them to a single day, they’ll be occurring for nearly an entire week – from Thursday, September 15 through Wednesday, September 21, 2016.

Legends PvE Week

Batman is the quintessential Legend. So this week all Legends PvE events are open for all players! Ready to head to the South Gotham Courthouse? Think you have what it takes to tackle Area 51? Will the Hall of Doom or the Paradox Wave prove to be your undoing? There are twelve events in total that you can attempt during the Legends PvE Week, from September 15 through September 21, 2016!

Marketplace Sale

In addition to the Legends event, if you head to the Marketplace you’ll find that Exobyte Data for all Legends characters are on sale for 40% off! Ever wanted to experience Legends content as Future Batman? Maybe Bombshell Catwoman? Or Arkham Asylum Joker? These and more will be available during our weeklong sale.

And if that weren’t enough, we’re also marking Batman-related items in the Marketplace down 40% as well! This includes base items (like the Batcomputer & More Pack), style items (such as the Batman Cowl Pack), toys (the Batman bouncy ball!) and more. Get Caped Crusader style and decorate your personal Batcave to match, all at a great discount.

Trivia Sweepstakes

We’ll have news about this ON Batman Day, September 17. Check the DCUO forums and follow @DCUO on Twitter to see the details and to enter!

Now, it’s time to be the hero (or villain) that DCUO deserves. Head in game and start celebrating Batman Day in Gotham City and beyond!

The event and sale begin in the US with daily server restarts at 4AM PT on September 15, 2016, and end at 4AM PT on September 22, 2016. The event and sale begin in the EU with daily server restarts at 8PM PT on September 14, 2016, and end at 8PM PT on September 21, 2016.

As you may have heard, Booster Gold has been filling up Time Capsules with lots of useful and exciting items to send through the Multiverse to you! These have now begun appearing in game with Game Update 63. But how do you find them? How can you open them? What’s waiting for you when you do? Let’s take a few minutes to prepare for their arrival and find out…


Time Capsules can be obtained through regular gameplay. You don’t need to do anything special in order to get these. As you’re playing the game as you normally would, you will eventually find a capsule waiting for you when you defeat an enemy.


To open a capsule, you’ll need a Stabilizer. There are two ways to obtain a stabilizer: purchasing one from the Marketplace for 100 Daybreak Cash (PC) or Marketplace Cash (Console), or putting one together through gameplay.

When you purchase a whole Stabilizer from the Marketplace, you can use it right away to open your capsule.

In game, you’ll need to find Stabilizer Fragments. You can use these fragments to piece together a full stabilizer, which can open a capsule. Stabilizer Fragments can currently be earned in-game in the new Duo Event, “Suicide Squad Training.” Head to Belle Reve to fight against guards, and possibly come face-to-face with a member of the Suicide Squad! You can find this in your On Duty menu under the “Events” tab.

Suicide Squad Training can be completed once per account per day. Free players will receive 3 Stabilizer Fragments per event, Premium players will receive 4 Stabilizer Fragments per event, and Members will receive 6 Stabilizer Fragments per event. It will take 15 Stabilizer Fragments to build a complete Stabilizer. Stabilizer Fragments and Stabilizers are special types of currency that are shared by all characters on your account.

Once you use a stabilizer to open a capsule, you’ll see what sort of goodies Booster Gold has sent to you!


Each capsule is tradable and once opened will include a variety of useful, mostly tradable, items. Some of these items will be included inside a separate capsule or box inside the Time Capsule. These contain styles, auras, collections, and gear, including:

Future Crusader’s Gear

Get one of these boxes in your Time Capsules and you’ll find it contains Future Batman-inspired gear that is level-appropriate to your character. There are different boxes for different item types, including Head, Shoulders, Back, Chest, Waist, Hands, Legs, or Boots.

These boxes are tradable until they’re consumed; then, since the gear becomes attuned to your current character’s role and level, they will be locked to that character.

Lantern Corps Emblems

Show your support of the Lantern Corps with these new Emblems! There is an emblem available for every Corps:

  • Black Lantern Corps
  • White Lantern Corps
  • Orange Lantern Corps
  • Red Lantern Corps
  • Blue Lantern Corps
  • Green Lantern Corps
  • Indigo Tribe
  • Sinestro Corps
  • Star Sapphire Corps

In addition to adding flair to your in-game appearance, each Emblem grants a feat, as does collecting them all!

Misted Auras

When you collect certain items from the capsules, they will go towards completing a collection that rewards you with a misted aura – Green, Amber, or Red!

Think any of your Lantern Corps-inspired characters could use one of these?


New stat/ability mods, Exobytes, R&D materials, other styles, and additional helpful items will also be found in the capsules. To hear additional information about these new Time Capsules, and to see some of the style items in action, rewatch this livestream replay from July 2016:

Time Capsules are now available with the launch of Game Update 63! Stay tuned to the official forums and DCUO Social Channels (Twitter, Facebook) for more information!
