STORYLINE: The fate of the entire Emotional Spectrum hangs in the balance of an uneasy alliance between Green Lantern Hal Jordan and Sinestro in War of the Light Part II. Feeling that love has been endangered by this relentless war, Carol Ferris and the Star Sapphires have also come to Earth to restore their own entity and stop the strife ... and all who get in their way.
JENS' TAKE: "The introduction of Larfleeze and the Star Sapphires in War of the Light Part IIadds a lot of depth to the story. And, with nearly all the Corps now part of this epic trilogy, players really get to dig deep into Lantern mythology. They'll also get to see their favorite iconic characters like Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn infused with the mystical mists, which adds even more interesting elements to the story." - Jens Andersen, Senior Creative Director, DC Universe Online.
PART I RECAP: In the first part of the War of the Light trilogy, Lanterns of all colors lost connection with their Emotional Spectrum's entities and strange mists descended upon Metropolis, affecting the citizens' emotions. Following cryptic evidence, four Corps - Green, Blue, Sinestro, and Red - converged on Earth, determined to find out what happened to their entities and subsequently caused a new war of light.
DCUO's War of the Light Part II DLC is available as a free download for Members and for purchase by non-members via the PlayStation Network, the in-game Marketplace, or for PC players via the DCUniverseOnline.com website.
