Official Press Release
The season of giving has gone awry in DC Universe Online's (DCUO) latest game update: Season's Greedings. Larfleeze, greedy, devious leader of the Orange Lanterns, is lashing out at Santa Claus for leaving him empty-handed this year. To retaliate, Larfleeze has hidden stolen holiday items throughout Gotham City and Metropolis until he can ship them back home to the forbidden territory of the Vega System.
Heroes and villains alike will take part in quests to find the stolen presents. Heroes will receive direction from Green Lantern Hal Jordan in the Watchtower, while villains will hear a similar request from the wielder of yellow light, Sinestro in the Hall of Doom. In order to locate the presents, players must search for, and defeat, Larfleeze's carefully crafted orange construct enemies, created to resemble those he has defeated in the past as a warning sign to any who cross him in the future.
