MMORPG.com Champions Online Correspondent C.A. Thomas writes this look at a number of different directions that the developers at Cryptic might go in the continuing development of the superhero MMO.
Now that the Blood Moon has set on Millennium City, players of Champions Online are eagerly looking toward the coming weeks to see what Cryptic team has in store for the holidays. It's been described as "huge", "shocking", "massive"...you get the idea. It's supposed to be a big deal. But other than hinting at it being a game-changer, Mr. Roper's been pretty quiet about what's coming next for Champions. This has led to dozens of speculation threads on the official forums. Here are some of the more popular ideas as far as what the community has expressed interest in seeing with the Winter Update for Champions Online.
This is far and away one of the most-wanted things on the Champions Online Winter wish list. It's been said that Cryptic has been planning new zones for some time now, and everyone's excited to see what's next. There's been talk of a moon or space-themed zone, the addition of Hudson City, another major aspect of the Champions Universe, and a number of other designs possibly coming in the future. With the somewhat subtle hype coming from the development team about the upcoming content, it's a bit hard to think there won't be a new zone coming. Of course, as with everything, only time will tell.
