Tomorrow morning at 8am Pacific time DCUO servers will be going down for approximately 8 hours. During this time, Sony Online Entertainment will merge its DC Universe Online servers into what they are now calling Master Servers. These servers are reported to be running Update 4.

Monday evening at login, you'll be greeted by a new screen, perhaps requiring you to change your screename. Remember that even during server downtime, TEAM ORBIT officers are available through Ventrilo for assistance. We look forward to the new friends we will surely make.

UPDATE: The rollout will now take place over the course of this week, starting with the EU Servers. The downtime gamers will experience will range from 8 to 14 hours. For more info on how they plan to handle the changing of screenames, click HERE.

Recently the team has been drawing some attention to its Guerilla FX Studio out here in Hollywood, California. One of the first guests was actor / comedian Eddie Griffin. As usual he was a delight to work with. During the shoot he went into an unscheduled shout-out to TEAM ORBIT:

For those of you wondering just what exactly TEAM ORBIT is, we've posted our history. It should give you a better idea of the experience behind our leadership, and some of the victories in our wake:

TEAM ORBIT also tends to appear in print. We posted an example of this, and it does offer a different view into the team, and its projects:

SOE just announced that a new Dowloadable Content pack will be made available later this year for DCUO under the name Fight for the Light. the pack will include Light Powers, and is based on the Green Lantern.

Players will be able to create new heroes and villains to use the new power sets, but they can also choose to respec their existing characters to use the powers without having to level up a whole new character. Heroes will be able to channel the green power of will while villains will be equiped with the power of fear. Each set has 24 separate abilities for heroes and villains (for a total of 48).

The light powers differ from other powers already available in the game as players will be able to collect constructs, such as a chainsaw or light whip, which will act as their weapons. Every construct will have its own set of combos but players will also be able to seamlessly switch between the construct modes.

In addition three all new alerts will be added in which players can test their new-found powers.

  • The S.T.A.R Labs will pit players against Brainiac's logic battery which he has built to try to harness the Power Source behind the Lantern Corps' rings.
  • Coast City will have players battle their way to the home of Hal Jordan and the Sciencell Prison is the landscape for a prison break which heroes will try to prevent while villains try to assist the prisoners to break out.
New items will include a Green Lantern and Sinestro Core suit. Players can also unlock complete new iconic gear sets. The download price for this DLC will likely be $9.99.
