The next DC Universe Online episode – known as World of Flashpoint – launches on April 15, 2021. And there’s more good news: it’s free!
The new episode explores the events around the Flashpoint storyline. The team at Dimensional Ink Games says that they drew inspiration from several DC comic books including Flashpoint #1 – #5, Flashpoint: Batman – Knight of Vengeance #1 – #3, and Flashpoint: Wonder Woman and the Furies #1 – #3.
Here’s more on the World of Flashpoint episode from Ted Stone, the game’s Senior Community Manager:
In this expansion, Flashpoint Batman (Thomas Wayne, Bruce Wayne’s father), Emperor Aquaman, Flashpoint Wonder Woman, and more are desperately fighting in a falling world. Atlantis and Themyscira are at war. A violent Batman embraces his darker side, seeking vengeance for his family while protecting a somehow-even-more-crime-riddled Flashpoint Gotham City.
In addition to engaging with these new characters, you will also earn villainous gear based on Heat Wave, a boss you’ll fight in the episode, and Doomsday, who you’ll face in the open world.
You’ll need to be level 15 to play the expansion. And unlike other DCUO expansions, this one is free for all players. You can learn more about World of Flashpoint at the official PlayStation Blog.
