Issue 13 Launches -

Ncsoft has announced the launch of issue 13: Power and Responsibility, which adds day jobs for your character's alter ego, the pact leveling system, multiple character builds and more.

SEATTLE, Dec. 3, 2008—NCsoft®, the world's premier publisher and developer of massively multiplayer online games (MMOs) today announced the next free update to its highly successful comic-book inspired MMO, City of Heroes®. The release of Issue 13: Power and Responsibility introduces several innovative features to the MMO genre. Macintosh players won't be left out as open beta testing for the new Mac version of City of Heroes is just around the corner.

Issue 13: Power and Responsibility unveils some pioneering features to the MMO genre. Multiple builds is a character customization option and delivers the ability to have two different build-outs for each character. This offers enormous flexibility for players who can now switch back and forth between their two character builds, depending upon the task ahead of them, by visiting contacts in game.

Pact leveling is a new innovation for MMOs. This system allows two friends to enter their characters into a pact before level five, and have their XP permanently in sync, regardless of how much each character is online. This way when they play together they will always be the same level. It's similar in concept to City of Heroes' already popular Sidekick feature which allows players on different levels to play together.
