Going Rogue: Praetoria Unveiled in New Screenshots

Going Rogue: Praetoria Unveiled in New Screenshots - MMORPG.com

Going Rogue, the second paid expansion to City of Heroes will be going live later this summer on August 17th, and NCsoft is still pushing out information on the expansion's features and content. Today, we bring you an unveiling of the game's alternate-universe Paragon City, Praetoria, a utopia ruled with an iron fist by the tyrant Emperor Cole.

“Praetoria had its genesis in the ascension of Marcus Cole as the world's prime guardian. No one will ever forget how very close the human race came to annihilation in those dark years before Emperor Cole's rise to glory, or how the very earth itself turned against humanity at the command of the renegade scientist, Doctor Hamidon. The misguided leaders of the world sought to beat back the Devouring Earth with nuclear fire to no avail. Only through Emperor Cole's intervention was the world saved. In gratitude for his efforts, the people of the world chose him as their sole guardian, forever turning their backs on the archaic notions of nation-states or ethnic identities. From then on, they were citizens of the Empire—they were Praetorians. “

You can find screenshots of Praetoria, including its various districts such as Nova Praetoria, the Imperial City, Neutrolopolis, the Underground, and the Magisterium in our City of Heroes gallery.
