The DC Universe tells tales of gods among men and larger than life superheroes, but what about the arcane? What about those who work in the shadows? What about when those shadows seek to destroy Gotham? That’s where Justice League Dark comes in. Of course, the JLD grouped many of different magic wielders over the years, but all have had a strong connection to the mystic arts. DC Universe Online introduces a JLD featuring some of the most anti-hero of all anti-heroes: Dr. Fate, Zatanna, and of course, Constantine to name a few.
Ted “Mepps” Stone and Creative Director SJ “Nerd of Prey” Mueller show us the rip in the sky above Gotham City which is a huge part of the new open-world missions. Your job as a hero or villain is to find Dr. Fate or Felix Faust and aid him in tipping the scale toward order or chaos. Also in the Oblivion Bar, you can help Zatanna and Constantine chase down a “big time deal” in the JLD: Pub Crawl Duo.
If you’re looking to take part in a new Alert, Episode 34 offers JLD: Darkness Rising, featuring Constantine again. This time he invites himself into the ARGUS Black Room and asks for your assistance in taking down a daemonic attack on Gotham.
Then to cap the adventures off, Episode 34 offers two Raids (standard and elite versions). The first is Fellowship of the Arcane, an epic battle to take down man-child Klarion and the magic he unleashed on Gotham. The second is Shattered Gotham. It’s an all-out war against the daemonic invasion of Gotham City. The only thing standing between the city and daemon horde is you — and your friends, of course.
The full livestream with an in-depth look at the new costumes and artifacts can be found below. But if you want to see it for yourself, Daybreak launched this new episode on the public test server this weekend. Of course, the developers want you to try it out before it hops to the live servers on March 28th.
