City of Heroes Celebrates Fourth Anniversary


City of Heroes is turning four this year. Having survived a change of ownership, the MMO now under NCSoft is commemorating the event with a downloadable calender featuring City of Heroes/City of Villains content. The months correspond with the twelve “Issues” released for the game since launch.

NCSoft’s Matt “Positron” Miller has also promised players a new dynamic in game play will released in the coming months.

“!I can’t tell you how excited I am for our game’s future, and although we have some major announcements yet to be made, one of the things I can talk about is a feature that we are planning. Similar in concept to our character creator, it allows you, the players, to create missions and story arcs for your characters and others to participate in!”

The calender will be available for download from the City of Heroes website later today.

As a person with a vast store of useless information, I have to pass on some CoH trivia:

Since City of Heroes launched:

  • More than 32 million characters created and that’s 4 times the population of New York City!
  • Players have spent a combined 292 centuries playing City of Heroes and City of Villains
  • More than 100 million items have been traded through the consignment (auction) houses since they were launched in 2007
