City of Heroes Issue 13: "Architect" Details Revealed
NCsoft has given gamers a preview of details from the next update for City of Heroes. With Issue 13: “Architect” City of Heroes takes a flying leap forward by giving players access to an editor which will allow them to create their own episodes from the ground up.
There are other significant changes to CoH including two new power sets; the classic Shield and for all those villains out there, Pain Domination which is the evil opposite of “empathy”. Heroes will now also have Day Jobs. You’ll get perks dependent on where you log out.
A character’s day job is determined by the actual in-game location from which he or she logs out. If players log out from a University their day job is considered to be a Scholar. If they log out from City Hall they’re a City Official. The benefits are thematically appropriate to the location. For example, a City Official earns extra Influence, a Scholar is granted Salvage, a Caregiver is granted Health Regeneration Buffs, etc.
