The next episode for DC Universe Online is World of Flashpoint, launching April 15, 2021. Explore events surrounding one of the most legendary DC storylines, Flashpoint, and its time-twisted versions of your favorite DC characters. It will be up to you and your allies to set the timeline right!
World of Flashpoint
In this expansion, Flashpoint Batman (Thomas Wayne, Bruce Wayne’s father), Emperor Aquaman, Flashpoint Wonder Woman, and more are desperately fighting in a falling world. Atlantis and Themyscira are at war. A violent Batman embraces his darker side, seeking vengeance for his family while protecting a somehow-even-more-crime-riddled Flashpoint Gotham City.
In addition to engaging with these new characters, you will also earn villainous gear based on Heat Wave, a boss you’ll fight in the episode, and Doomsday, who you’ll face in the open world.
World of Flashpoint is inspired by the events of DC’s Flashpoint storyline. However, this episode represents only a small slice of that entire epic. Your Super Hero or Super-Villain will experience the realities of this timeline and witness some of the most essential moments and challenges while striving to set things right.
