DC Universe Online is getting all gussied up for Halloween; costume ball to follow.

Sony Online Entertainment has announced that a Halloween themed DLC pack will be making its way to users in time for October 30. The pack is called The Witching Hour and will include new costumes, new missions, and a new story.

Sony describes the new content:

“Klarion the Witch Boy is stealing the powers of Heroes and Villains throughout the DC Universe and using them to cause quite a bit of Halloween mischief on the streets of Gotham City. Apparitions of all kinds are rising from the earth and tormenting trick-or-treaters. Heroes, it will be up to you to save the civilians, and Villains, well, you should be able to find some way to take…advantage…of the situation.”

Using Klarion the Witch Boy as a plot device is kind of cool. The DLC goes live somtime toward the end of October. What do you think? Going to get your Halloween on? Let us know on Twitter.
