DESCEND INTO THE DARK MULTIVERSE IN METAL PART I AND PART II Just announced at Comic Con, DC Universe Online's next content releases pit the Multiverse we know against the Dark Multiverse Batman has just uncovered. New episodes METAL PART I and METAL PART II will launch this September and December. DC Comics' Dark Nights 2019 NEW EPISODE: METAL PART I In METAL PART I, Batman has breached the barrier between our world and the Dark Multiverse, and then disappeared. In through the breach storm the Dark Knights, twisted versions of Batman hell-bent on revenge. What is this Dark Multiverse? Who are these Batmen? How can they be stopped? The answers lie in the exceptionally rare forms of Metal that the Dark Knights seek, Metal which must be found and returned before our world melts into the Darkness. SJ'S TAKE: "Metal reveals the Dark Multiverse - terrifying alternative universes where Batman has fallen to evil. If you thought Owl Man of the Crime Syndicate was scary, you better prepare yourself for the Batman Who Laughs. The Metal comics are such a trip. We’ve had a lot of fun bringing this crazy, dark, complex story arc to life in DCUO." - SJ Mueller, DC Universe Online Creative Director THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT METAL PART I: Metal Part I will be a large-scale episode, with level-agnostic event versions of content available to all players for a limited time.

DC Comics' Dark Nights Metal Vol. 1 #5, 2018 NEW EPISODE: METAL PART II In METAL PART II, the saga of the Dark Knights, the Dark Multiverse, and Metal will come to an explosive conclusion. The Bat-God Barbatos has waited since the dawn of the universe for this moment, and it seems nothing can stand in his way. LEAH'S TAKE: "When we were just starting on the idea to bring Metal to the game, we knew the size and complexity of the cast and story would be challenging. We started testing the waters with looks from the comics - The Red Death and The Drowned - releasing those styles. The reaction was so overwhelming we knew we had to figure out how to bring the story into an episode. The way we figured it out? Not one Episode, but two! Doing the story right meant taking the time, and the team really stepped up and made it their own. We knew we were onto something good!" - Leah Bowers, DC Universe Online Executive Producer THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT METAL PART II: Metal Part II will be a large-scale episode, with level-agnostic event versions of content available to all players for a limited time.
