I read somewhere that Jim mentioned that there will be one but it hasnt been officially announced yet. Possibly they will wait until the GL movie comes out for the earliest I would guess.
IIRC, I don't think Power Rings will be made available to characters.

I'm very keen on it.

The possibility to play a Green Lantern might be the only way to convince me to play. But it still might not be enough. I mean, $15 a month is just too much for me.

Can't wait until the GLC is opened up to us. I already have a character concept waiting for the day.

I just don't see it working. The game as it is barely has one "button" for punching... how are they going to implement a ring that can do anything?

whole new skill set with predetermined will power settings or make the ring a weapon set instead of bows and stuff so different combos whip out different animations it could work i think

You'd have to get the ring first and then work your way up to different constructs. And you'll have to make the critical decisions on which constructs you want to keep since its limited. Just like Pokemon moves!

easy: just keep to the same concept that DC has used for the last 15yrs or so...........namely, that its just a ff-projector. only diff is this thing gives certain special effects based on skill trees (like healing, force fields, pwr-amping.....)

thats not bad actually, a "W.P. meter" would be an interesting twist on how often U could use a given effect, and the meter always recharges but not too fast so as to keep play balance......

With the game just having launched this week, I don't think anyone should be expecting a expansion pack for the game for at least 10 to 12 months, If that soon. Most MMO's wait at least that long in order to build a decent player base to see if the game will survive in the long haul and see what players are demanding be add to removed from or changed in the released game.

It's a little bit early to be thinking about an expansion pack.

That's a way they could do it... but that's not the way a power ring works.

Well unless you want to hold down the shift key and press F2, X, P and G all at once then I suggest you deal. Or invent a new controller specifically for Green Lantern.

yea, but since we're working in this particular medium, I think a certain amount of generalization is needed if only to keep costs (development & watever else) under control.

Of course I'll buy ANY GL themed expansion! I had high hopes this would be the game to FINALLY allow us to choose a power ring to use. I guess not yet. I would be happy to create some alien GL from some distant sector. Kind of disapointed we finally have a DC Universe game, yet can't really be any of the real heroes and are forced to make either wannabe's or clones....

Playing in a DC MMORPG as DC established characters was never -- and could never -- be in the cards. It wouldn't work. Unless there was literally hundreds of servers with a set # of slots for all the established DC characters as some kind of "first come, first serve" for registration, you'd end up with a game where you'd be running into hundreds, perhaps thousands of identical Supermen and Batmen... and that'd be pretty ridiculous and defeat the point of such a thing.

How ever those players that create interesting characters, who RP enough to get noticed and do well enough to become a leader among players will end up being used in the Game Comic that will be a ongoing from what I understand.

One current idea that is floating around is each corps is a different specialisation: Green= buff/debuff, Blue= healer, Yellow= crowd control and Red = tank, Larfleeze would be an instance boss and there is unsurity about Indigo and the Star Saphires, I however think the upcoming GL stuff is a Parralax event or the introduction of the others corps. An expansion is unlikely, addon however is highly likely.

How cool would it be to have a pure Green Lantern server that is on Oa or Qward? Of course the main GL's won't be available to play, instead you create an alien GL from another sector and have Kilowog train you as a new recruit to the Corps??? Go on missions with Hal, Kyle, Guy and John? Report to Salaak? Fight classic GL baddies.... That is what I want!!! And as far as the "villain" side, you become a member of the Sinestro Corps!!! Sprinkle in the other color corps to aid or fight against!!! The mind boggles on such an event!!!

If the expansion is anything like this, then we are in for a treat! Maybe the upcomng GL game will be similar to this?
