DC Legends Reveals New Characters and Limited Time New Year's Events

DC Legends players are getting a super update, with multiple new characters and events to bring inthe New Year! This morning WB revealed that Power Girl and Superboy (Jon Kent) will be joining the DC Legends roster, each with an impressive set of powers and state to help you crush Nekron and his legion of Manhunters.

DC Legends is totally free to play, so you can expect to put in a little bit of work to unlock these characters. Power Girl you'll be able to unlock by completing some exclusive in-game events and unlocking unique fragments. The "Adventures of Super-Sitting" event will run from January 6 to the 16th, and then the "My Cousin Kara" event runs January 20-30. You'll need to complete these events in order to unlock your new hero. Superboy unfortunately, will have to be purchased.
