City of Heroes: Issue 12 Developer Diary by Joe Morrissey

I'm Gonna Wait for the Midnight Hour!

The Midnight Hour is upon us! At least it will be when City of Heroes: Issue 12 officially hits the CoH servers. Over the last few weeks, the developers at NCsoft have been quite forthcoming with information about this latest installment, and this week they're featuring a developer diary by Senior Designer Joe Morrissey. She goes into great detail about the storyline and the NPCs in this Issue, so make sure you check it out!

The Midnight Squad takes the main focus of this issue. They've got some of the coolest history, yet hardly any of it has been opened up to the players. I choose the Midnight Squad because they were seriously crippled by the invasion and therefore were extremely motivated to take action against the Rikti. We did a lot with the Rikti story for Issue 10, but it was only through the single lens of the Vanguard. Now we see a second perspective, through the eyes of those hardest hit from the invasion, the Midnighters.

Their Kickstarter campaign reached its goal in under a week so we sat down with Project Lead, Chris Hare, to learn more about their story.
