War of the Light Part I is the first part of three upcoming downloadable content packs, which will focus on the different Lantern Corps. In this episode the Green, Yellow, Blue and Red Corps converged on Earth to find the entities they represent, which will result in a war of light in the heart of Metropolis, and in the living planets Mogo and Ranx. Players will need to join Hal Jordan or Sinestro to investigate the mysterious mists of colors that have descended upon Metropolis and are affecting the citizens' emotions.

"Our first DLC introduced Light Powers and allowed players to feel the awesome abilities of the Power Rings employed by Hal Jordan and Sinestro in the pages of the comics," said Jens Andersen, Senior Creative Director for DC Universe Online. "With War of the Light Part I, we are adding another light power to the mix, this one fueled by the Red Light of Rage. Rage Powers will have a brand new tanking mechanic for players to master, adding a whole new strategy to group content."

"War of the Light Part I will let players explore new and reimagined environments in DCUO. They will notice changes to Metropolis, which has been affected by this new war of light, and for the first time they will journey to Mogo, the sentient Green Lantern Planet, and Ranx, the Sentient Sinestro Corp City. These environments play a big part in the storyline and we look forward to expanding each of them as the trilogy unfolds," Andersen continued.
