Birds of Prey DLC coming to DC Universe Online next month

Daybreak Game Company have revealed their next expansion for popular superhero MMO, DC Universe Online. Next month players will find themselves embroiled in new story content and in-game events centred around the Birds of Prey.

This latest episode will launch on April 16th and will be available to all players for a limited period of time. All you need is a copy of the game (which is free to download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch) with a level 15 character.

Birds of Prey is being described as a “large scale episode” for DC Universe Online and one that will include content which can be played either solo or as part of a team, whether rolling a superhero or villain. You’ll run into a cast of familiar comic book characters who have been updated for this new DLC including Huntress, Poison Ivy, Black Canary, and of course, Harley Quinn.

As with each new episodic slab of content expect plenty of unlockable rewards including new gear, styles, artefacts, base items, and feats.

Brought together by Barbara Gordon (Oracle), the DLC delves into the formation of this unlikely super group:

Our story begins in the formative stage of this team. Black Canary, Harley Quinn, The Huntress, and Poison Ivy know of each other, and every hero knows and works regularly with Oracle, but they haven’t become the supergroup they are destined to be. They haven’t needed to – at least until now. In Metropolis, an increasingly unhinged Lex Luthor has just risen to new heights of insanity. He has blown up his own LexCorp Tower, causing the citizens of Metropolis to go berserk and plunging Metropolis into panic. And to get to the bottom of it, the world needs a new team.

Birds of Prey will mark DCUO’s 37th piece of post-launch episodic content. DC Universe Online originally released on PC and PlayStation 3 back in 2011 before expanding to current gen systems. Last year, it made the leap to handheld – here’s what we thought of the Nintendo Switch version.
