New DC Universe DLC pack announced

The Last Laugh promises PvP focus next month.

Superhero MMO DC Universe Online gets its fourth major DLC expansion in June, Sony Online Entertainment has announced.

Titled The Last Laugh, the add-on offers a wealth of new PvP-focused content, including a new weapon, additional Legends characters and a number of new brawls.

The new weapon is The Shield, which you can use either in melee or ranged combat.

There are three new Safe House battles, including Graviton Technology Recovery which tasks players with unscrambling teleporter codes that The Joker has split into eight separate fragments.

The Rescue sees heroes trying to bail out hostages, while villains free arrested criminals from opposing Safe Houses.

Then in Bomb Disposal players will be fighting for control of a robot that can either crack encrypted email terminals, or add additional levels of security.

There's also a new two part Headquarter Battle crusade in which eight heroes and eight villains face off against each other. The former have to take over the Hall of Doom while the latter must breach The Watchtower.

Finally, the first light-powered Legend characters are being introduced to multiplayer combat. You'll have access to Kilowog, a Green Lantern, and Amon Sur, a member of the Sinestro Corps.

See the screenshot gallery below for a closer look at all this new stuff.

The expansion will be a free download for Legendary members, while everyone else will have to reach for their wallets. A price tag hasn't yet been confirmed.
