"We want to make sure that people understand that purchasing the pre-order box at retailers around the country and in Canada guarantees entry into the open beta," said Michael Lewis, president of Cryptic Studios. "Customers will get a chance to try City of Heroes and pick up a bonus in-game power that is exclusive to the pre-order product."
Each package will come with a special in-game ?prestige power? unique to each retail version of the pre-sale box. Only people who pre-order the game will receive access to one of these powers. Each box also comes with a digital version of the limited-edition City of Heroes preview comic book.
City of Heroes is the first massively multiplayer online game featuring a modern, comic book-inspired setting. The game takes place in a virtual world where players create their own super-powered heroes and fight crime in the sprawling, villain-filled metropolis of Paragon City.
