NCSoft has announced the release of Issue 12 for City of Heroes. The new issue will feature a ton of improvements on gameplay as well as some new content for heroes and villains.
Starting at level 10, heroes will be able to join the Midnight Squad. With content stretching all the way to level 50, players will traverse Roman-style maps and don new costume pieces. The new organization may hold secrets from other moments in time with their Ouroboros crystal, allowing players to discover secrets that reveal the secret of their powers and origins.
After reaching level 50, villains have two new epic archetypes to choose from: the Wolf Spider and the Blood Widow. Each of these branches off to two other types, allowing players to further customize their characters. These choices will also affect the duties required of each member of the Arachnos.
This issue will see a lot of gameplay improvements, including the redesign of the Hollows zone to make it "more fun." Everything's been rebalanced and tweaked. Also, players can enjoy new customization to their UIs with eight new power trays, more real numbers on screen, and the ability to convert inspirations to different types as desired.
The entirety of the changes are available at the official site. To save space, I mentioned all that I could, but there is a ton more for any heroes and villains who need to read more of the improvements.
This issue looks amazing compared to some of the past ones. They've always had great content and changes, but this issue will affect every player in a big way.
