A new episode is coming out this year in DC Universe Online. Episode 45: Shock to the System is coming out in spring 2023.

What is the new episode all about? The Big Bang attack which created new heroes, villains, and victims has drawn otherworldly and sinister attention. Ebon's powers have cast a long shadow but it is the presence of the Parademons that forced things to contact you. There is a lot to unearth, like why Apokolips is focusing on Dakota City or why people are disappearing.

Here are some details about this new episode:

  • Normal and elite versions of On Duty content are available along with level-agnostic event versions for a limited time.
  • The content includes open-world missions and world bosses, with a duo, alert, and raid.
  • The episode features DC and Milestone characters including Static, Ebon, Rocket, DeSaad, and more.
  • The storyline includes adventures centered around the new Dakota City, written by acclaimed comic book writer Leon Chills.
  • The episode launches new player rewards, including gear, styles, and more.

Last week, a Shazam ally was made available in the game. For those who missed, not to worry. While they may no longer be able to get that, there's one more ally arriving this quarter. Look forward as well to a new artifact, new time capsule, and new Doctor Fate's Daily Rewards each month.
