Today, Sony Online Entertainment released The Last Laugh, the fourth downloadable content (DLC) pack for DCUO, available now for download on the PC and PS3. In the largest PvP (player vs. player) content update since launch, no one is safe as Superman and The Joker encourage heroes and villains to invade The Hall of Doom and The Watchtower, as well as the player safe houses and headquarters throughout the open world. The Last Laugh also adds an all-new weapon and introduces new Legends PvP characters.
Lawrence Liberty, executive producer, DC Universe Online said:
“We have taken PvP to another level in DCUO and are thrilled to see the new combat in action. The multiplayer battles in The Last Laugh let heroes and villains unleash their fierce competitiveness, testing their power, potency and skill.”
Along with epic multiplayer crusades, the DLC pack brings back notorious DC Universe villain The Joker for a criminally twisted new story line. The Last Laugh features voices of some of the biggest stars, including renowned voiceover actors Mark Hamill (The Joker), Adam Baldwin (Superman) and Arleen Sorkin (Harley Quinn).
Jens Andersen, creative director, DC Universe Online added:
“Excitement has been building, not only for the new multiplayer action The Last Laugh brings, but for the return of the all-star voice actor cast in DCUO. We were privileged to work with such a talented voiceover cast when we first launched and are happy to have them return to their iconic roles.”
