The next major expansion for superhero MMO DC Universe Online is available on PC and PlayStation 3 from 13th March, according to a PC Gamer reveal.

Titled Battle for Earth, it features the new Earth Powers set and a number of new adventures.

As detailed on the game's official site, a new Raid sees you defending Wonder Woman's island of Themyscira from Chimeric Brainiacs. You'll be fighting alongside various mythical creatures including Cyclops, Hydra and Colossus.

Elsewhere, South Gotham Brainiac Invasion tasks you with chasing the titular villain out of Batman's hometown for good.

The aforementioned Earth Powers - the game's ninth power set - can be used for both Tanking and Damage. Geokinesis abilities give players the ability to shape Earthen constructs to defeat enemies or reinforce allies, and call on various Seismic powers to daze opponents.

Legendary members get the DLC for free but everyone else will have to open their wallets - though a price tag has not yet been confirmed.
