City of Heroes: Going Rogue goes live

17 Aug

Great assets are what keeps COH players loyal.

Massively multiplayer online role-playing game City of Heroes unveils today what it heralds as its most ambitious expansion to date: Going Rogue. While I haven’t had a chance to dive into it yet, Going Rogue is an example of why I’ve remained a fan since 2004.

City of Heroes may have never had the following anywhere near the size of World of Warcraft but that’s exactly what I love about it. Unlike most fantasy-based MMOs out there – and there are a ton of them – in COH I no longer get the feeling that my character is running alongside some snot-nosed, 13-year old brat. The choice of costumes, the banter and cultural references reassure me that I’m playing with folks closer to my age group: 30s & 40s. And people who are – naturally – partial to comic books. But most of all, the COH team has succeeded where most games have failed: keeping the content fresh and constantly improving on what’s already an excellent product.

Here’s a little preview. More ongoing Rogue once I’ve had more time to play.
