We’ve got a release date for DC Universe Online’s next episode, House of Legends for PC and consoles.

Mark down August 25 on your calendars as House of Legends will release PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Although we didn’t have a release date prior till now, we did know Episode 41 House of Legends was due to launch in August.

We were informed about House of Legends during the July Development Update in which the team noted House of Legends would be a “significant departure” from their previous episodes with respect to formatting.

The main focus for House of Legends this time around will revolve around new features and improvements to DCUO. In case you missed it, it was announced earlier this year all episodes will be made free ahead of House of Legends later this month.

However, new content will not be relegated. This new episode will also include new content, rewards, gear, and more. This episode will include a renewed focus on raids as well. The Allies system will be a new feature as part of House of Legends will enable you to discover some pretty iconic DC characters and allow you to recruit them.

Combat is a huge focus as is endgame content with endgame providing full Source Marks rewards. The team notes,

You will not feel weak when you return to not-end-game content. In opening up the entire not-end-game to *literally* endless play, we strongly believe the experience will be more fun for everyone if the content plays somewhat similar to how it was designed. 

You will not be hurting for Source Marks. In opening up the entire not-end-game to *literally* limitless Source Marks rewards, we strongly believe these systems as a whole will make much more sense to everyone in the future if there is a clear divide between what rewards Source Marks and what does not.”
