City of Heroes/Villains – Issue 11 update

October 3, 2007 1 comment

NCSoft/Cryptic has released some information about the next update for City of Heroes/Villains – Issue 11: A Stitch in time.

A time travel option provides access to new content for heroes and villains that happened before the current timeline in Pagaon City and the Rogue Isles. It also provides the ability to go back to existing story arcs that a player/character may have missed and outleveled. The character level will be adjusted so to keep the encounters challenging.

In the lower levels there is generally more story arcs and missions than a character can play, since they will outlevel them before everything is covered. It sounds like a nice feature to be able to go back to do those.

Some more powersets are added for melee type archetypes (dual blades and willpower) and also the ability to customize the weapons used by certain powers. This is also a nice thing and I would certainly be interested in modifyingsome weapons that gets wielded by some of my characters. Invention sets gets another level of rarity – this sounds like something that will become very expensive to get – or very lucky…

Sounds like some nice additions and I guess this is something we will see released in perhaps 2-3 months time.
