    Just announced, DC Universe Online's next content release assembles a new team: the Birds of Prey! The new episode BIRDS OF PREY will launch this April.



    In BIRDS OF PREY, Oracle faces new challenges: Lex Luthor is back and more dangerous than ever, citizens need immediate help as Luthor's plot turns Metropolis into a near lawless war-zone, and her scrappy bunch of most-trusted associates might be too busy roasting and fighting and mistrusting each other to get the job done.

    With time running out and a deeper threat to investigate, will Oracle be able to mold her...vibrant...friends into the new kickass team she needs? Or will the Super-Villains have their day?

    SJ'S TAKE: "I've spent the last ten years of my life preparing for this episode, so this time my snappy quote has been replaced by a heart-felt one. In my early adulthood, I managed a comics and game store, and the Birds of Prey comics series highlighted so many amazing female characters written in a way that was extremely relatable. It inspired me to become not just a fan, but a creator. I know you're going to enjoy our Birds of Prey, and I hope it makes you love these characters as much as I do." - SJ Mueller, DC Universe Online Creative Director

    Thank you for doing a comics-faithful version of BoP, and not doing the movie's mix of characters.

    Easy guess.

    Yay. Finally something that I might enjoy, that's not magic or metal.

    QUESTION: Will Power Girl be in this episode? She and Oracle had a lot of backstory and she's good friends with Huntress.

    The last time we had birds of prey content we villains got to be villains, will this be the case once again?

    Meh, but I guess it's fine since we had 3 consecutive "dark" episodes.
    I don't expect much of the storyline but the instances can still be good.

    So before the final DLC gets released here you have my wishlist:

    • Black Canary style complete with a new long hairsyle as seen in the BoP promotion image posted here (comics accurate).
    • New Huntress style, you have several Earth 2 versions (Helena Wayne) from pre-Crisis and nu52 or from Earth Prime (Helena Bertinelli) that are not the "Hush" costume already available as PvP style.
    • Huntress' dual crossbows style (dual pistols) as MANY of us expect this to happen NOW, its now or never.
    • Other hairstyles like Batwoman's or Lady Shiva's should be included in-game either with briefings, collections, investigations OR store. There is lots of vanity items/styles than can and should be added using any method.
    • Please, make most of alerts/duos available to everybody by placing direct access to the instances in Metropolis/Gotham/the Watchtower/Central City. This is already implemented in the game (see Arkham Asylum in example) and it would help us to play old instances and farm old styles.
    • Please, Doomsday and other open map bounties are fun and interesting... revamp the game, add new bounties all over the map forcing us to team up and farm them, its very fun and it helps us to get immersed in the game.
