  • City of Heroes turns 4

    CoH has hit its 4 year anniversary - Positron (production lead designer bloke) looks back on the changes in that time and some pretty nuts statistics:

    City of Heroes Community Site

    Since City of Heroes launched:
    • More than 32 million characters created – that’s 4 times the population of New York City!
    • Players have spent a combined 292 centuries playing City of Heroes and City of Villains
    • More than 100 million items have been traded through the consignment (auction) houses since they were launched in 2007

    But the thing I like the most about his post is this bit:

    I can’t tell you how excited I am for our game’s future, and although we have some major announcements yet to be made, one of the things I can talk about is a feature that we are planning. Similar in concept to our character creator, it allows you, the players, to create missions and story arcs for your characters and others to participate in. You’ll be able to pick the map, villain group, and objectives, as well as write the dialog and any clues needed for the missions. When you are satisfied with it, you can upload it and have other players across all servers play it and rate it. Fame will come to the players whose stories rate the best overall. It is features like these that we never dreamed of including when we first shipped, but are excited to be able to offer players very soon.
    I think this will drastically change the game, because there are a few missions in it that are absolute gold (Frostfire, I'm lookin' at you punk) and hopefully this feature will mean more variations on those. Is this the first MMO to offer this sort of option to the players?

    still waiting for an external character editor application though *mumble* *mutter*
