Sony Online Entertainment released Home Turf, the sixth DLC pack for the free-to-play MMORPG DC Universe Online. Available now for download on the PC and PlayStation 3, Home Turf introduces a customizable Base system for the first time to the popular MMO game. Players can now customize their own Lair, which serves as both a Base and battleground for new Lair PvP Battles. Through their Lair, players can harness new power and combat abilities through their new Mainframe to use on the streets of Gotham City and Metropolis.
All DCUO players will have access to a Hideout, a low rent version of Lairs with limited capabilities. The Home Turf DLC gives players two Lair Themes, with four additional Lair themes that are accessible in the Marketplace, and with more to come in the future. Players can customize their Lairs by collecting some of the hundreds of available items through gameplay.
At the heart of a players’ new Lair is the Mainframe, which gives access to amazing new combat abilities that can be unlocked. Heroes and Villains can acquire a devastating Orbital Strike, call in battle-hardened reinforcements, acquire Supply Drops or unlock powerful new Mods. Additionally, a Lair can be upgraded to provide conveniences such as mail, vendors and Broker.
Along with the new Base system, Home Turf gives gamers access to new high end solo content, with new missions at four iconic locations: Stryker’s Island, Arkham Asylum, Steelworks and Ace Chemicals. Each location boasts new exterior and interior content, instances and missions that breathe new action into the environments. These areas each offer players 10 missions to complete for ‘Marks of War,’ which they can use to purchase equipment, or convert to ‘Marks of Triumph’ in order to upgrade their Base Mainframe.
DCUO’s Home Turf DLC pack is now available for $9.99 USD to Free and Premium players via the PlayStation Network, the in-game Marketplace, or for PC players via the DCUniverseOnline.com website.
