One of the applicants for the position of City of Heroes'
spiritual successor, Heroes and Villains
, has new details regarding its character creator to share as well as several pieces of concept art from the game.
Players will start their journey in the character creator by picking an alignment (hero, villain, or freelancer) which will determine the type of stories that they'll experience. Apparently, alignment isn't permanent, but can be changed over time via actions. The next steps for a budding superhero will be to pick an origin, an archetype, power themes, non-combat skills, positive and negative traits, an optional secret identity, and visuals for the hero's body and costume.
You can check out what some of the costumes and game locales may look like as well as the first shot of the character creator in the gallery below.
