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.
