The Serpent Lantern

May 21, 2010

Cryptic has unveiled some details about their upcoming advanture pack, The Serpent Lantern.

As one might guess from the name, the stories in this pack is around the organisation VIPER and the article on the Champions wbe site outlines a few pieces of what to expect.

I am glad that they have started to create these adventure packs: it is a kind of content that provides a bit more choice to the player. The pack can be played at almost any level and with any size of team – it will scale accordingly And it is repeatable if one wants to play it multiple times.

I really hope they continue to add content in general in this form, even if it is not everything. This approach give player more choice of what to do in the game, at least at some point in the future where a number if adventure packs hopefully has been released – and that at practically any point in time of the superhero career.

A good move, hopefully this works out well for them.

    Interesting. I wonder how much it will cost? By all counts CO has enough content to quest to the cap now. Paying for optional side tracks comes across a lot better than the last AP, which was perceived as plugging a hole in the end game (fairly so or not I can’t say).

    As far as I know, it will not cost anything extra beyond the subscription fee. If I recall correctly, I believe the producer said on the No Prisoners No Mercy podcast that content generally would be included in the subscription fee in the future.

    The dev team wanted Vibora Bay to be included originally and not charged extra for, according to the same source. So I suppose other powers in the company wanted something different, but player reactions showed what was acceptable or not.
