If you don’t hear “Jingle bells, Batman smells…” at least one time during the upcoming holiday update then Sony and DC just aren’t doing it right.
Earlier this week, DC announced their “Season’s Greetings” update for DCU Online, which will add a bit of Christmas-y flavor to their MMO and a new challenge involving the kleptomaniac Orange Lantern Larfleeze pulling a Grinch on the citizens of the DCU and stealing all of their presents.
Here’s the full text from the update:
The holidays are upon us and DCUO is ready to celebrate! Citizens of Metropolis and Gotham City are dressing up and decorating both cities, and you’re all invited to join in on the fun.
But not everyone is feeling the happiness and joy the holidays bring. Larfleeze, the crafty leader of the Orange Lanterns, is doing everything in his power to make sure there’s nothing left under anyone’s tree, stealing presents from heroes and villains alike. Can you stop him?
And if all you want for Christmas is someone else’s two front teeth, there’s a brand new 5v5 Player vs. Player map that will take you into the heart of the Watchtower and provide you with plenty of heroes’ and villains’ faces to smash.
Whether it’s holiday cheer, stolen presents, or PvP you’re looking forward to, Game Update 7: Season’s Greedings will be along just in time to make your season bright!
There’s no official release date for the update, but it should be along “soon.”
