DC Legends, the mobile game where players gather a team of up to four heroes and villains from across the DC Universe to face off against Nekron and his Black Lanterns and Manhunters, has confirmed the upcoming characters that will be added to the game in January 2018.
And it's all a bit Superman-themed to begin the New Year.
Players will be able to recruit both Power Girl and and Jon Kent/Superboy to their squads. Power Girl will be able to be unlocked via playing and taking part in the temporary mini-events. However, sadly, Jon Kent is locked behind a paywall, so players will have to pay real money if they want to get the Boy of Steel.
Along with the new characters and mini-challenge events over the month, players will find Shazam and Black Adam reworked for play, making the characters play slightly differently than before. And if previous examples are anything to go by, they'll also be slightly more unique in the game.
Initially, these new additions had been rumoured since just before Christmas, as the characters suddenly popped up in the available/characters to unlock screen, and appeared on loading screen art all of a sudden. However, it was since officially confirmed by the game developers, WB Games.
DC Legends is available on Android and iOS.
