List of Changes, Blood Moon Dated -

Cryptic Studios has provided us with an update on Champions Online, giving us a quick peek at some of the more notable updates to the game this past month, plans for changes in the imminent future, and a few details, including a release date, for the game's first major update, Blood Moon, which will launch on October 27th.

The full run-down is available below:

This Past Month

  • Lots of power balancing meant free Retcons for everyone!
  • Big changes to the Economy were made after we had overestimated the amount of resources players would accumulate while leveling. Increased item drops and decreased Retcon costs make it more affordable!
  • We began addressing gaps in content by adding new missions to Monster Island in Well’s Pass. We’ll be continually adding more as time goes on.

Coming up in early October!

  • Mission Tracking Updates! – New ways to share missions with groups, including setting primary missions, making more missions shareable, and granting “Assist Bonuses” if you help complete a mission you don’t have.
  • More Missions! – Bounty missions, UNTIL tasks, and more content in Millennium City and Canada to help address more of the leveling gaps.
  • Power House 2.0 – A new room to test out your powers against real enemies, Power Tips from the trainers, and a duel-free zone by the trainers to make purchasing a power much quieter.

The Blood Moon Rises October 27th!

  • Take part in an event of epic proportions. The evil Undying Lord Takofanes has returned to proclaim his coming reign over humanity. Help defeat his undead hordes all over the world.
  • Help save the 13 souls of the Undead Heroes to unlock the Celestial power set weeks before it is released to the public.
  • New PvP Map: Zombie Apocalypse – Fight for survival against the zombie hordes.
  • New power set: Celestial – A support-based set allows you to both heal allies and weaken enemies.

Find out more about what's coming to Champions Online here. Also, be sure to check back here for an update on the Celestial power set, which will see a new power (or more) revealed every day over the next few weeks.
