DC Universe Online, Sony Online Entertainment's superhero MMO, will soon receive a fifth content pack called "Hand of Fate," and the studio provided a look at the DLC in a behind-the-scenes video released today.

Creative director Jens Andersen and systems designer David Stricker explain the new Legends PvP characters, Doctor Fate and Felix Faust, the game's first sorcerers. Both characters can summon minions in combat, and they feature abilities that confer buffs to damage and health.

"Hand of Fate" also adds a new type of group missions to the game, Operations, which allow for multiplayer combat in an open-world environment. In addition, the DLC includes an upgrade known as "utility belt attachments," along with about 60 new side missions.

The "Hand of Fate" DLC is set for release in late September. It will be free to all DC Universe Online monthly subscribers, and will be available for purchase to players with Free and Premium accounts.
