With Aquaman set to hit theaters next month, we figured it would only be a matter of time before we saw the powerful Justice League member's world pop up in DC Universe Online. And just like clockwork, it has.

Today, Daybreak Games has announced the arrival of Atlantis, one of the company's largest expansions for the popular online multiplayer game since its launch seven years ago. The expansion is available now across all platforms, including Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, with a "brand new underwater world to explore, iconic DC characters and swimming."

With Corum Rath set to try and take over the Throne (and conspiring with Deluge parties to work alongside him), it's up to Aquaman and the DC Universe characters to come together and fight back, in an effort to save the Crown from falling into the wrong hands.

The brief launch trailer above gives you an idea of what to expect from this immaculate world, which is jam-packed with space to explore and details from the forthcoming Aquaman film.

Here's a rundown of the new content that you'll find in this expansion:

  • Vast Underwater World - For the first time ever, players will be able to visit and explore the underwater Kingdom of Atlantis. Everything from swimming, combat, and lighting has been re-imagined for a fully submerged environment. Swim through the ocean and explore everything Atlantis has to offer.
  • New Missions - Travel throughout Atlantis including the Throne Room, the city streets and more to take on dangerous missions and fight deadly foes.
  • New Raids - Fight for the Crown of Thorns, challenge Corum Rath, or take on a massive sea monster in these new raids that are only available in Atlantis.

On top of that, Daybreak has also confirmed that players will be able to earn new feats, as well as discover new collections to add to their lineup. You'll also be able to collect a variety of new gear, including items inspired by Aqualad, Corum Rath and more.

But keep in mind that in order to access the event portion of Atlantis, you'll need to have a level of 10 or more. Fortunately, it shouldn't take that long to get there if you haven't already.

We'll be talking with the team behind the expansion soon. But in the meantime, you can check out DC Universe Online now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Also, Aquaman opens in theaters on December 21.
