City of Heroes gets some New Gameplay Options with "Breakthrough"
NCsoft and Cryptic Studios are releasing the newest expansion to the City of Heroes/Villains franchise with “Issue 9: Breakthrough.” The expansion, which will be available free to current subscribers, will add a new crafting system and auction houses to the gameplay, creating a deeper experience for the online community. With the crafting system, players can use the loot collected from defeating enemies and completing missions to create their own custom-made enhancements and unique costume pieces. They can then either apply these items to their own character or take them to the auction house for some valuable currency. The expansion will also include new high-level missions, like the Statesman’s Task Force (shown above), and an update of the Hamidon Encounter that includes villains.
