Mark Hamill and Arleen Sorkin return as the Joker and Harley Quinn after Arkham City

Remember all the disappointed fans out there when Mark Hamill said that Batman: Arkham City was going to be his last time voicing the Joker?

He tweeted, “This will be my last, there’s no question about that. But it’s the last hurrah.”

With that tweet it looked like it was true, and fans started to ask if it really was his last. He replied with, “I only said Arkham Asylum would be hard to top, not that I was quitting.”

Thank goodness that it’s not his last, since I think he’s the best Joker ever. Now we can celebrate Mark Hamill’s return as the Clown Prince of Crime in the upcoming DC Universe Online DLC, The Last Laugh, which was announced by Sony Online Entertainment.

Fans of Arleen Sorkin’s Harley Quinn also have reason to celebrate, because she is returning as the voice of Harley Quinn. She was missed in Batman: Arkham City when Tara Strong took over as the voice of Harley Quinn. Strong still did a good job, but Sorkin is the Harley Quinn we all know and love. Adam Baldwin will be voicing Superman.

The Last Laugh will include an all-new weapon, hours of multiplayer gameplay in the Safe Houses and Headquarters, and new Legends PvP characters:

  • The Shield – Players can unleash this vicious new weapon to bash their opponents, or hurl it to take them down from a distance.
  • Safe House Battles – No one is safe now that heroes and villains can invade each other’s Safe Houses in these four on four battles:
    -Graviton Technology Recovery – Players will be tasked with unscrambling teleporter codes that The Joker has mixed into fragments. Located at the Watchtower or Hall of Doom, players must retrieve eight code fragments to successfully rebuild useable teleporter codes.
    -The Rescue – Heroes must rescue hostages, while Villains will be freeing arrested criminals from opposing Safe Houses.
    -Bomb Disposal – Thanks to The Joker, the encryption on the email terminals have changed and can only be bypassed by the robot he provided. Players must gain control of the robot and either upload the data to their HQ or add new encryption to keep their enemies and The Joker away from it.
  • Headquarter Battles – In this two-part crusade, 16 players — eight heroes and eight villains — will face off for the ultimate player reward. At the request of Superman, heroes must take over the Hall of Doom, while villains, egged on by The Joker, will breach the Watchtower in order to create chaos.
  • Legends Characters – Combat illuminates with the introduction of the first light-powered Legends for multiplayer combat. Players will soon have access to Kilowog, a Green Lantern, and Amon Sur, a member of the Sinestro Corps.

The Last Laugh DLC for DC Universe Online will be free for Legendary members and will be available for purchase for free and premium users. You can get it in June for PC and PlayStation 3.
