'City of Heroes' - Screens

by Rainier on March 7, 2004 @ 1:51 a.m. PST

City of Heroes is the first superhero themed online RPG and will offer a host of exciting and compelling gameplay features. Players create their own heroes, choosing from hundreds of different powers, skills, abilities, and items and design their own unique costumes. Then they can band together with other players to fight evil, build their own secret headquarters and strive to become the premiere hero group in the city. Check out some new powers and new screens ...

1. Defender

Power Set: Radiation Emission

Power: Radiation Infection

Infects a targeted foe with deadly radiation. All foes the target comes in contact with will also become infected. The Radiation Infection will last as long as the Hero can keep this power toggled on or when the original target dies. Infected foes have severely reduced accuracy and defense.

2. Scrapper

Power Set: Dark Melee

Power: Siphon Life

The Hero taps the powers of the netherworld to steal life from a targeted foe and transfers some of that life to himself. A successful hit can reduce the target’s accuracy.

3. Blaster

Power Set: Energy Blast

Power: Energy Torrent

Energy Torrent unleashes a cone of powerful energy that can smash foes and send them flying.
