STORYLINE: Trouble is stirring in the dark world. Darkseid's son, Kalibak, and the villainous Mantis have called upon the agents of Darkseid to delve beneath the surfaces of New Genesis and Apokolips to help them retrieve powerful ancient relics from the age of the Old Gods for a dark purpose. The heroic Mister Miracle and fierce Big Barda have assembled a force together in an effort to stop them.
Halls of Power Part I includes five all-new cooperative multiplayer adventures: two 8-player Raids, one 8-player Operation, one 4-player Alert and one 4-player Operation.
Six new Skill Points are now available to earn, and players have access to a range of new Collections, Feats, gear, and Base items in Halls of Power Part I.
For the first time in DCUO, players can play with or against the iconic villains and heroes from the Fourth World, including Kalibak, Mantis, Mister Miracle and Big Barda.
Apokolips, New Genesis and League Halls serve as the backdrop for the content in Halls of Power Part I.
New Styles and gear, such as Mister Miracle's Cape, Kalibak's Vest and Sash, and an Old God Helmet, are now available.
JENS' TAKE: "Halls of Power Part I has gone through a grand metamorphosis since its initial announcement at last year's SOE Live, and we are extremely proud of how it's evolved. With the additions of new environments, League Hall content, and the debut of the New Gods, we think this DLC is one of our biggest and best updates since our launch on the PS4."
- Jens Andersen, Senior Creative Director, DC Universe Online.
