Free For All Launch Day

Free For All Launch Day - Champions Online -

For Champions Online players and prospective players, this is a big day as the game has officially gone free to play. To celebrate, Cryptic Studios has several items of interest on the main page including an account creation guide, a notice about the C-Store sale, a YouTube trailer and the Free For All launch day patch notes.


It really is the small things that make the difference. With that in mind we started off small and then just went off the charts. We have updated the gameplay and mission flow from the Tutorial to the Atomic wasteland in the Desert. We updated existing mission, changed the order of other missions and created numerous new missions to tell a better story in Westside and the Desert.

The smallest improvements we made are easily seen in the Tutorial. With the addition of notification pop-ups the initial experience in the Tutorial is easier to navigate and the fundamentals of Champions Online are easier to learn. The Tutorial also has an improved ending from the fight with Black Talon to the hero's welcome that puts you right into the Renaissance Center where Defender needs your help.

Following the tutorial you jump into Westside and learn about a new threat. We have made so many improvements to the environment, mission flow and story in Westside it is almost a new neighborhood. The level range of Westside has been changed to levels 7-15. Players that have characters in the previous level range of 18-23 will have their missions cleared and a handoff to an appropriate contact in their level range.
