City Of Heroes Summer Blockbuster Now Available
City Heroes' latest expansion plays on the tried and true methods of Hollywood blockbusters, featuring two new scenarios involving coliseum arena games, as well as a brand new casino heist expansion with an all-star cast of villains.
I'm amazed that people still play this game given all the other free-to-play titles out there, including Perfect World's take on Champions Online and SOE's powerhouse DC Universe Online, both of which have seen a huge resurgence in their player base after switching from base premium subscription models to the free-to-play microtransaction model.
Anyway, the 'Time Gladiator' segment is basically a typical arena-style showdown between mythical legendary gladiators and super-powered heroes and the 'Casino Heist' focuses on the splashy, retro heist movie motif with players being tossed into a situation involving criminal masterminds inside a flash casino. Check out both in the new trailer below.
If you're still chugging along in the now free-to-player super hero title, you can check out both expansion packs right now.
The game enables players to basically build their idea hero using mix-and-match pieces, parts, powers and abilities to create your dream super hero. The game has been around since 2004 and recently went free-to-play the accommodate the growing trend of microtransactions that have really taken off here in North America.
