I17 Release to Coincide with Sixth Anniversary

City of Heroes 6 Year Anniversary Celebration!

Full announcement under cutCollapse )

Open, O sesame!

In the news archive, but not showing on the official front page last I checked:

Issue 17: Dark Mirror Enters Open Beta

Link-phobic, click here for the official blap.Collapse )

Given that the usual turnaround time for an open beta is two weeks, this means it should be hitting the live servers on the 6th anniversary. How cool a Shire birthday present is that?

ETA: And of course, Samuraiko beat me to the punch. *goes to watch her video*

ISSUE 17: DARK MIRROR IS ANNOUNCED!

HOLY CRAP!

http://www.mmorpg.com/gamelist.cfm/game/3/view/news/read/16179/City-of-Heroes-Issue-17-Dark-Mirror-Announced-Brings-Graphics-Overhaul.html

WOOT!!!

Text for those who can't access it...

"NCsoft has announced today that players can look forward to Issue 17, which has been titled "Dark Mirror," this April! Most players expected to find the new graphical updates featured in Going Rogue with the release of the upcoming expansion, however, it appears that the previously announced "Ultra Mode" will make it in with Issue 17!

Ultra Mode is an optional enhancement mode, enabling players that have the hardware to take advantage of the new bells and whistles to do so, without disturbing the game for those still running City of Heroes on their toasters. The mode will enhance the game with a "a new look and feel with a heightened level of detail in lighting, reflections, shadows and water effects."

Issue 17 will also introduce a "new and nefarious foe" that will be able to match players "blow for blow." Given the Issue's title, I'm guessing it will be your doppelganger, but for now Paragon Studios isn't saying anything more than that.

A short rundown of the issues other features is available below:

  • New badges, new missions and new player emotes
  • Epic Archetypes now available at level 20
  • Improvements and additions to Mission Architect
  • Enhancements to UI and game systems
  • And dozens more

Was all that not exciting enough? How about the fact that beginning on March 2nd, those who pre-order Going Rogue will receive early access to the expansion's two new powersets, Dual Pistols, and Demon Summoning in April?!

The Going Rogue "Complete Edition" has also been announced, featuring both City of Heroes & City of Villains, 30 days of game time, and the "Complete Collection Item Pack," which contains Alpha and Omega costume sets and auras, four stance emotes, and The Shadowy Presence invisibility power.

The Going Rogue beta will begin this Spring, with the expansion's full release expected in July.

A small batch of new screenshots of Issue 17's Ultra Mode are available in our City of Heroes gallery."

*cries* And me being unemployed, I can't afford to upgrade my video card or hard drive (thankfully I don't need to upgrade my motherboard, but STILL).  IT'S NOT FAIR!!!
