It's the start of a new year, one that already promises to be an exciting one for fans of superheroic MMOs. DC Universe Online
is launching tomorrow, Champions Online
will be going free-to-play early this year, and City of Heroes
is not sitting down either. In what we hope might be a new monthly tradition, fans have been treated to a brand-new producer's letter
that looks back at the year before and begins peering ahead to the next 12 months while also hinting at some of the more interesting new additions to the game.
Among the more interesting revelations are the promise of a double XP weekend this month, as well as more information regarding Praetoria's Hamidon when PAX East
rolls around. The development team is also hoping to step up its communication this year, both from well-known members of the team and from some of the newer talent with less public exposure. While another expansion might not be in the works for City of Heroes
in the near future, fans can take a look at the full letter on the site and rest easy -- it promises to be a very interesting year.
