As the Paragon Studios
team puts a wrap on August, the latest City of Heroes producer's letter
reiterates the studio's key philosophy: Content is king.
Along those lines, the letter discusses several exciting developments in store for the game's future, including the upcoming Haunted Mansion for the Halloween season, new Incarnate Trials, and more content for the Winter Event. The team is also focusing on delivering "more regular updates" than has been seen previously, so expect to see CoH
upping the frequency of in-game goodies from here on out.
As part of the "content is king" philosophy, Paragon will be releasing a monthly Signature Story that will be free for VIP (subscribing) players. These will not only tell intriguing stories, but will reward superheroes with increased rewards. The team is also going to put new items into the in-game Paragon Market store on a weekly basis, including costume pieces and power sets.
City of Heroes
is preparing to launch Freedom
, its free-to-play version of the game, at an unspecified point in the future. Subscribers will be able to get a head start
arrives, and they will enjoy spending the 400 points that their VIP status entitles them to each month.
