Champions Online (CO) is starting 2013 off right as Cryptic has revealed plans for a series of updates set to debut every couple of weeks as part of a mega-event that will span the next couple of months. The first of those events are set to get underway this week (Friday, January 11th to be exact) and provide players with a chance to get two free costume pieces (helmet and a robe) and the new Grav Bike Arsenal lockbox. The lockbox offers a chance to get one of three new grav bike mount versions.
Additionally, Cryptic has posted a piece of teaser story for the first part of the mega-event with the initiation of Protocol Alpha.
