Still craving Mark Hamill's trademark Joker stylings after finishing "Batman: Arkham City?" Have no fear -- "DC Universe Online" has everything covered. The Massively Multiplayer Online game based on the DC Comics universe has announced a new downloadable content pack entitled "The Last Laugh," which sees Hamill reprise his role as the Clown Prince of Crime. Joining Hamill is Arleen Sorkin as Harley Quinn, who voiced the character for the entirety of "Batman: The Animated Series," and Adam Baldwin as Superman, reprising his role in both "DCU Online" and "Superman/Doomsday."
While "The Last Laugh" heralds the return of the DC Animated Universe's most popular voice actors, the DLC also boasts a number of new features and gameplay including a new weapon called The Shield, Safe House and Headquarter Battles and new Legends character Kilowog and Amon Sur.
"We created this DLC purely for the players that like to take the fight to each other in DCUO's amazing PvP combat," said DC Universe Online creative director Jens Andersen via press release. "Our community has continuously asked for more multiplayer action in DCUO, and we wanted to deliver content that fully meets their expectations and pushes PvP to another level. 'The Last Laugh' is the first DLC that we've created that focuses almost entirely on player versus player battles, and it adds an exciting new element as some of DC's greatest heroes and villains join to fight alongside you. Players will have even more opportunities to prove to the world whether heroes or villains will be triumphant."
