SOE has revealed that the latest DC Universe Online DLC pack, "The Last Laugh," will feature a number of veteran voice actors familiar to the DC animated scene -- including Mark Hamill.
Last we heard, Hamill had announced Arkham City would be his last time voice Joker, but he's actually taking up the role again in the new DCUO add-on. Then again, this could very well have been developed before his announcement.
Hamill aside, Arleen Sorkin and Adam Baldwin have also lended their lovely voices to Harley Quinn and Superman, respectively. For many, Sorkin is the quintessential Quinn, having voiced the bubbly psychopath since Batman TAS, though she was dropped from Arkham City in favor of another actress. Baldwin has voiced Superman in a number of DC animated feature flicks.
As for the gameplay side of things, "The Last Laugh" will include the following content.
The Last Laugh will include an all-new weapon, hours of multiplayer gameplay in the Safe Houses and Headquarters, and new Legends PvP characters:
- The Shield - Players can unleash this vicious new weapon to bash their opponents, or hurl it to take them down from a distance.
- Safe House Battles - No one is safe now that heroes and villains can invade each other's Safe Houses in these four on four battles:
- Graviton Technology Recovery - Players will be tasked with unscrambling teleporter codes that The Joker has mixed into fragments. Located at the Watchtower or Hall of Doom, players must retrieve eight code fragments to successfully rebuild useable teleporter codes.
- The Rescue - Heroes must rescue hostages, while Villains will be freeing arrested criminals from opposing Safe Houses.
- Bomb Disposal - Thanks to The Joker, the encryption on the email terminals have changed and can only be bypassed by the robot he provided. Players must gain control of the robot and either upload the data to their HQ or add new encryption to keep their enemies and The Joker away from it.
- Headquarter Battles - In this two-part crusade, 16 players -- eight heroes and eight villains -- will face off for the ultimate player reward. At the request of Superman, heroes must take over the Hall of Doom, while villains, egged on by The Joker, will breach the Watchtower in order to create chaos.
- Legends Characters - Combat illuminates with the introduction of the first light-powered Legends for multiplayer combat. Players will soon have access to Kilowog, a Green Lantern, and Amon Sur, a member of the Sinestro Corps.
As always, the content will be free to Legendary members, while Free and Premium members will need to fork over some cash to have access.
