Sony Online Entertainment has today announced that the upcoming “Fight for the Light” DC Universe Online expansion will be available to download from September 6th. Aside from a number of Green Lantern-themed mission arcs and locations, players will also be able to select “Hardlight Constructs” as a power for newly-created characters who will then align themselves with either the Green or Yellow Lantern Corps.
According to the press release, the expansion will be completely free to anyone with an “active subscription.” Whether this will exclude opportunists looking to re-subscribe just before launch date has yet to be verified.
At present there is no word on an official EU release or promotional offer, though it seems likely; those who try to access the UK version of the DCUO website are directed straight to the same update page as US subscribers.
