Nate Birkholz, Lead Producer of City of Heroes (and a once-upon-a-time Mac gaming guru) gave us a walkthrough of the new City of Heroes Freedom. The new franchise is a hybrid MMO, meaning that it's got both free-to-play and paid content. Check out the video for more information, and be sure to stop by the NCSoft booth for a quick demo of the game.
Ever since you were a kid, reading comics under the covers with a flashlight and “flying” around the backyard in a homemade cape, you knew what you wanted to be. Some of us chose to be the noblest hero imaginable; others decided to give the supervillains a run for their money. But some of us had flimsier allegiances, flipping from a dark hero to a noble villain at a moment’s notice. This tradition lives on in the Going Rogue expansion for NCsoft’s City of Heroes massively multiplayer online role-playing game. Like the original City of Heroes, you’ll create a superhero (or villain), write an origin story for the character, choose one of five origins (Natural, Magic, Science, Mutation, or Technology) select from five archetypes (Blaster, Controller, Defender, Scrapper, or Tanker) and venture out to do some damage.
If you like online MMOs, you might be interested to know that City of Heroes is releasing an all new expansion pack later this summer. It's called "Going Rogue" and your player will be able to start out a neutral character and gradually choose his side as he gains levels. The game is available on August 17th. Check out the video below for a quick look into the game's storyline and gameplay.
