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

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.
