About Judy

As WP's managing 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.

The European release date of the highly-acclaimed and award winning City of Heroes has been confirmed for 4th February 2005. Exclusively available for PC, City of Heroes will have a suggested retail price of £29.99 / €39.99.

NCsoft is going all out with the City of Heroes Deluxe edition.

Since its release in 2004, Cryptic Studios' groundbreaking massively multiplayer online game has swooped in and seized the public's attention like few others. With its non-traditional setting, a first for an MMO title, and its casual-player-friendly structure, City of Heroes has attracted gamers from across the spectrum and won two prestigious Billboard Digital Entertainment Awards.

Sebastian Vidal, COO of NCsoft Europe, said: "The Deluxe edition of City of Heroes is an excellent package that offers tremendous value for money, while giving new European players the very latest content updates straight out of the box. We're looking forward to welcoming thousands of new heroes to Paragon City."

City of Heroes has an s.r.p. of £29.99 / €39.99. Monthly subscriptions will be £8.99 / €12.99 with discounts available for three-months £23.99 / €34.99 and six-months £44.99 / €64.99.

NCsoft also will be making collectable City of Heroes Game Time Cards available. Game Time Cards will allow players without credit cards to play for 60 days at £17.99 / €25.99, and will come in three different designs.
