Heroes and Villains will soon have a place to call home as Sony Online Entertainment today announced Home Turf, its sixth downloadable content pack for DC Universe Online. Available in early 2013 for download on the PC and PlayStation?3 computer entertainment system, Home Turf will introduce customizable housing for the first time to the popular massively multiplayer online game, providing players with a base of operations, and all-new customizable backdrops for super-charged combat.
?Home Turf is going to be our biggest DLC Pack to date, and add a completely new dimension to the game,? said Larry Liberty, executive producer of DCUO. ?The level of depth that we?re adding to the new housing system will really let DCUO players live out their heroic or villainous fantasies like never before.?
Players will be able to tailor their hideouts and lairs with a variety of themes and hundreds of unique furnishing items, as well as enjoy conveniences and amenities ? like those found in the Hall of Doom or Watchtower ? in their own unique custom environment. Additionally, lairs will double as battlegrounds where players can challenge each other in one-on-one PvP matches.
Along with player housing, Home Turf offers players new missions and boss fights at four iconic locations: Stryker?s Island, Arkham Asylum, Steelworks and Ace Chemicals. Each location will offer players 10 missions to complete for ?Marks of Triumph,? which they can use to upgrade their lair and unlock its full potential and benefits.
?A secret lair or hideout is essential to any hero or villain, but it?s more than just a place to hang their capes. It helps complete their identity and gives them a place to train, recharge, store weapons and plan their attack strategy,? said Jens Andersen, creative director of DCUO. ?However, no hero or villain?s lair is safe from invasions by their enemies, and for that reason, we have introduced a new combat dimension to player housing. We will be sharing more details soon and cannot wait to hear what our players think.?
DCUO?s Home Turf DLC pack will be a free download for the game?s Legendary members and will be available for purchase to Free and Premium players via the PlayStation Network, the in-game Marketplace, or for PC players via the DCUniverseOnline.com website.
