City of Heroes Unity Rally Draws Thousands of Supportive Fans

Posted Mon, Sep 10, 2012 by Martuk

At the end of August, NCsoft announced the closure of Paragon Studios and that City of Heroes would be coming to an end this November. Since that time, players have been rallying in an effort to save the game before it is shut down. In an impressive display of support over the weekend, more than 3,000 players joined the Unity Rally held on the Virtue server to show their support for the game and protest its closure. A video composite shot of the heroes taken from the multiple instances of the gathering has been posted and is quite a sight to behold. Give it a look below.
