DC Universe Online has had a busy six months. There's been several significant updates, including the addition of Light powers and the switch to a free-to-play model. The MMO looks like it's going to end the year in a scarlet blur, with the latest DLC pack, Lightning Strikes. The focus of the DLC will be new missions featuring the Flash and the new Electricity powerset.

On top of that there will be new high tier gear inspired by Black Lightning and Zoom as well as a new city to save or corrupt, Central City. If it's anything like the Green Lantern update, there's sure to be a lot of content. Whether or not it fixes the end game grind and plethora of bugs remains to be seen. Lightning Strikes went live today, it's free for Legendary players and will set Free and Premium players back $9.99. You can pick it up through the in game marketplace on PC or the PSN store. Happy speeding!
