  • State of the Game Address

    The official site for City of Heroes has been updated with a look at the state of the game after three years.

    Three years. For some on the Development Team, the amount of change over that time has evolved the game to bear only a slight resemblance to its original form. In just the past 12 months we’ve published three major updates: Issues 7, 8, and now 9 (coming very soon).

  • "Inventing Wings"

    With the City of Heroes/City of Villains Issue 9 update coming to your superhero game client soon, the folks at NCsoft have released a developer diary featuring the thoughts of Character Artist Jay Doherty. In the diary, he talks about the design process and the tremendous offering of new inventions available in the coming update. Read on!

    Hey, I'm Jay Doherty, and I am a character artist for City of Heroes. One of my specialties is inventing wings for City of Heroes and Villains, and I am here to tell you how it all goes down.

    With each new content update that has come out over the recent years, I always saw players making their own threads on costume pieces what they wanted, so I decided to start a thread on the City of Heroes several months back asking players what they most wanted.

  • Dev Diary: Redesigning the Hamidon

    The official site for the City of Heroes site has been updated with a new dev diary!

  • Knives of Artemis Villain Backgrounder

    Here's another update from the City of Heroes official site today. A look at the Knives of Artemis.

    Like a diamond-bladed sword, the Knives of Artemis are incomparably beautiful and deadly. Bewitching tales of the Knives of Artemis are told by military pundits and war journalists in awed tones around the world. Heroes speak of them with equal parts enthrallment and dread, because they are renowned for their charms as much as for their mercilessness.

  • Invention System

    MMORPG.com has posted the newest Developer Diary from Matt Miller, the Lead Designer for City of Heroes / City of Villains.

    Ever since City of Heroes launched, Jack "Statesman" Emmert has been interested in adding an "out of combat" system to the game...something that gives players gameplay outside of the typical combat scenarios that City of Heroes has to offer. Originally this was going to be a Skill System, where you could train up in various skills and accomplish tasks during missions that would otherwise be unavailable to your character.
