Daybreak Games has been teasing DC Universe Online‘s upcoming time traveling episode “Age of Justice” for a while, and now we finally have a date for its release — June 1.
This episode will take players back to the 1940s and World War II where they will team up with Wonder Woman, the Justice Society, and the Blackhawks to stop the past from being changed and erasing the present. Players will find that Area 51 has changed a bit. Instead they will find a place — literally — divided between the past and the future with massive tears in time and space running down the middle. The two timelines are crashing together and its up to the players to figure out what’s going on.
Area 51 is the first of two new Open World Missions. The second is a war-torn village in Europe, located in time just a bit after D-Day. Baron Von Savage has taken control of the town and is using it as a base for world domination.
Also included in the update are a 4-player alert, two 8-player raids and elite raids, and a 4 player operation. All of these require players to travel in time, sometimes working with Rip Hunter to fix the timestream. Full details on all of these are available on the DCUO site.
