New DC Universe Online DLC hitting May

New content to be called Origin Crisis; explores "what-if" story scenarios and new raids, adds hero/villain origin operations and new gear.

Fans still playing DC Universe Online will be seeing more new content this May in the form of a DLC pack called Origin Crisis.

Fight alternate and possibly evil counterparts of Batman and Superman on this upcoming DLC.

As detailed on Sony Online's forums, the DLC will explore "what if" scenarios by letting players travel through alternate histories in different timelines. Missions include dealing with an alternate Batman who is a killer for hire and a Superman who works for antagonist Lex Luthor. The game's story takes place after Brainiac was defeated in the previous DLC.

Other features of the DLC include a new quantum controller power set, two new raids, two new hero and villain origin operations, and two new solo simulation challenges. Players can also find new gear types, including tier 5 PVE gear.

The pack will be a free download and will be available this May on the PC and PS3.

As far as I have read on other sites, the free pertains to Legendary members of DCUO.  Premium and free will have to pay $10 for it.  I will be buying as soon as it comes out, been looking forward to some new missions and armor for the game.

It will only be free for subbed members. Will be $10 most likely for premium or free to play members. 

Very misleading article.

It was a fun game, but once you get to the max limit, it's pretty hard to keep playing as a free user. Plus you really need to work with others to defeat some of the harder bosses so once you reach max level stuff, if youre still on your own, you wont get much farther.

You can be 100% certain that the person who wrote this article is dead wrong.  Like every DLC before this - it will only be free if you are a subscriber. If not, it will have a price, probably $10 like every other DLC.   But hey, why get an facts or information right, its only an online article!

This game is a lot of fun for free, and a good choice for PS3 owners.  It plays fine with a controller, I keep telling myself I want to buy the DLC but just don't get around to playing it.

Free? Sweet. Just hope I don't have to have a high combat rating to do it.
