About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games...

by Judy on July 26, 2004 @ 8:03 p.m. PDT

NCSoft has released new information about the second content update for their super hero MMORPG "City Of Heroes." "A Shadow Of The Past" update will feature two new zones (The Shadow Shard & The Hollows), two new villian groups (Rularuu & Igneous), plus plenty of new features and mission enhancements. Head on over to the official City Of Heroes website or read more for details...

The new generation of heroes knew they would find chaos in Paragon City. They knew they would find the wreckage of war, the cruelty of the wicked, and people badly in need of aid. They didn’t know the half of it. Now, new threats reveal themselves. The heroes must journey beneath the streets, where an ancient evil lurks. And they must travel to a twisted realm beyond this dimension, to confront:

numerous perils for adventuring heroes.

2 New Zones:
