Spot the exciting bit:
HomeLAN – Cryptic [creator of City of Heroes] is going to be releasing its first major free content update to the game soon. What can players expect to see in this update and what other free content updates are coming?
Chris Julian – In Issue #1, we’ve got new zones, new villain groups, a costume tailor for changing your look, and random indoor 5th Column and Circle of Thorns missions will be equipped with holding cells for defeated heroes. There are also instanced outdoor missions and a sewer trial room. For a free update, this one is pretty beefy.
Issue #2 will be this fall. The biggest addition will be capes. I’ve seen the early work on capes and they look tremendous. We will also have additional power sets and at least one new zone and trial room. Future free updates should be similar in the amount of content they provide.
Did you see what he said! Capes!!!!! Full interview here.
