A Shadow of the Past includes the following new content:

2 New Zones:

  • Igneous - Face deadly Pumicites and molten Magmites in the Hollows.
  • Terra Volta - In the devastation following the Rikti War, the Terra Volta reactor is Paragon City's sole source of power. Unfortunately, the villains know this all too well.
  • Eden - Battle the Devouring Earth and free captured heroes before they become the Devoured.
  • Cavern of Transcendence - Discover what lies at the core of The Hollows.
Mission Enhancements:
  • New custom mission artwork - See the marks the many strange villain groups have left upon their surroundings.
  • New mission gameplay features - Smash stolen weapons to smithereens. Use teamwork to bypass Crey's security protocols. Seek the key to the Outcasts' inner sanctum - but watch out for the wandering patrols!
  • Power Re-specification - The Terra Volta reactor has been running beyond full capacity for quite some time. Heroes who venture within it may experience untold side-effects.
  • Capes at level 20 - Only those heroes who prove themselves worthy may wear this symbol of heroic might.
  • Effects at level 30 - New visual effects add a whole new dimension to your character.
