New DC Universe update goes live

Fate of the Fortress detailed.

A new DC Universe Online update goes live today, Sony Online Entertainment has announced.

Titled Fate of the Fortress, it picks up where Fortress of Solitude left off, with the player fighting through Brainiac's stronghold with Superman and Lex Luthor.

The second installment in the three part episode takes you deeper inside the fortress, culminating with a boss battle against one of Brainiac's chief goons.

The update also includes new loot, 30 new weapons and, for those who complete all the briefings in both Fortress raids, a General Zod-inspired Banished Kryptonian Cowl.

SOE has also added a Hard Mode for HIVE Alert, a new Batcave PvP map and a new gameplay mode called Dueling that lets players challenge another Hero or Villain to a one-on-one fight.

As detailed earlier this month, DC Universe recently made the switch from subs to free-to-play.
