Sony Online Entertainment LLC (SOE) and ProSiebenSat.1 Games today announced that Hand of Fate, the fifth downloadable content (DLC) pack for DC Universe™ Online (DCUO), is now available for download on the PC and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. At the bidding of Doctor Fate or the evil sorcerer Felix Faust, players will undertake Operations – six intense new episodes designed for group play featuring three Heroic and three Villainous – that will take high level players back out to the iconic, open-world cities of Gotham City and Metropolis. Additionally, a wealth of new side missions will be featured, providing more fun and depth to the game’s storyline and world. Hand of Fate also provides players with new Utility Belt Attachments and debuts magic-powered Legends PvP characters, bringing a tale of magic and mystery to life.
“The fact that this is our fifth major downloadable content pack showcases our commitment to expanding the immersive player experience through regular content updates,” said Jens Andersen, creative director on DC Universe Online. “Hand of Fate is unlike anything we’ve offered to date. From the very beginning, it was designed to draw players back out to our massive open-world cities and allow them to experience them in new, unexpected ways. We are pleased with what we have come up with and can’t wait to hear what the players think.”
Hand of Fate provides players with hours of new adventures and content:
• Utility Belt Attachments – Utility Belt Attachments expand the trinket load-out from one to up to four slots, allowing players to equip multiple trinkets, toys, pets, 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 introduces the first arcane characters to Legends PvP. The Lord of Order, Doctor Fate and the evil 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 – are now 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, up to 60 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.
Legendary members can now access DCUO’s Hand of Fate DLC pack for free. Hand of Fate is also available for $9.99 USD to Free and Premium players via the PlayStation®Network, the in-game Marketplace, or for PC players via the DCUniverseOnline.com website.
