City of Heroes Previews Issue 20: Incarnates Ascend

Posted Fri, May 27, 2011 by Martuk

A new Incarnate trial is on the way for City of Heroes (CoH) players with Issue 20: Incarnates Ascend. The Issue 20 update gave players the chance to expand their powers with two Incarnate Trials, now a third is on the way with the Issue 20: Incarnates Ascend, the second wave of content for Issue 20. A new trial on the Keyes Island will offer players a chance to earn valuable rewards and unlock their Alpha Slot if they haven't done so already.

But there's more to the new content than just a new trial. Players will also find new in-game merit vendors that will offer new rewards that include: Ascension Armor pieces, chest emblems, auras, social and costume change emotes, account rewards, and Invention Origin recipes. The Lore Incarnate Slot will also be expanded to make way for new pets. Check out the full preview on the CoH website for more details.

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.
