City of Heroes Freedom getting first big update since going free-to-play, new screens inside
Today, NC Soft has announced the
first major update to City of Heroes Freedom since it added a free-to-play
option in September. City of Heroes Issue 22: Death Incarnate will
feature new powers, costumes, zones, end-game trials, and even more content for
Issue 22 will bring big changes to Dark Astoria. The undead
infesting this land have grown in power, turning it into a brutal level 50
Incarnate co-op zone. There’s new content for lower level heroes as well, such
as defending Bloody Bay from invading Shivans, and taking on the sorceress
Diabolique before she can harness the power of the banished god Mot.
The update will also expand the teleporter system. Players
will be able to use the Team Up Teleporter and install Hacked Telepads and
Magicked Telepads in bases. There are also sweeping changes planned for the
power sets of Controllers, Stalkers and Dominators, which can read about on the
City of Heroes official site.
