Aliens, crime and greed: It's Christmas in DCUO

Dec 13 // Fraser Brown    @FraserIBrown

With the festive season upon us it's time for MMOs to tempt us into ignoring our families and celebrations in favor of new content and Christmas trinkets. DC Universe Online has perfectly captured the holiday spirit with it's latest update, Season's Greetings. Larfleeze, the greedy and hideous leader of the Orange Lanterns, has stolen Christmas presents, most likely in an effort to become the Grinch of the DC Universe.

Hal Jordan and Sinestro have tasked heroes and villains with getting the presents from Larfleeze and his orange constructs. As well as hunting down stolen gifts, there's a new PvP map for those who like to spend the season fighting each other and vendor and market place items such as reindeer antlers. The update is already live and it's free for all players.

Here's Santa's list for DCUO:

  • Larfleeze Sightings: Players can receive a Feat if they can spot Larfleeze lurking about Metropolis or Gotham City once a day for, of course, 12 days in a row.
  • Watchtower PVP Map: Players can battle it out in a new 5v5 death-match arena located in the Watchtower.

New Holiday Marketplace Items: 

  • Festive Winter Hat - Do you have a jolly side? Have you been wanting to show off your festive spirit? Does your head get cold in that brisk winter air? If so, then this Festive Winter Hat is for you! 
  • Reindeer Antlers - Oh, deer! Declare your appreciation for these beloved holiday animals by wearing your very own set of Reindeer Antlers.

New Holiday Vendor Items:

  • Holiday weapon appearances to give your weapon a sweet new look
  • New Holiday Elf outfit set
  • Snowman form trinket
  • Holiday snowglobe grenade
