City of Villains Manifests update

Issue 7: Destiny Manifest out now for villainous MMOG; update adds content for high-level bad guys, mayhem missions, new PVP zone.

by

NCsoft has released the latest update for City of Villains, the massively multiplayer online role-playing game dedicated to super villains. Titled Issue 7: Destiny Manifest, the update is available in North America and Europe and free for the game's subscribers.

The add-on includes plenty of content for gamers, with 300 new missions and a new zone made specifically for high level characters. The new mayhem missions feature instanced zones in the goody-two-shoes metropolis Paragon City, where villains can cause as much havoc as they can in new destructible environments.

The new area of Grandville features the home of Lord Recluse, the head of the evil Arachnos, and Recluse's Victory, a player-versus-player zone where heroes and villains battle for control points. As momentum shifts from side to side, new "signature characters" may appear to help the losing faction turn the tide.

Other features include "patron powers" for characters level 40 or higher, storage items, supergroup banners, and more. City of Villains is rated T for Teen and retails for $39.99. For more information, check out GameSpot's review of the full game or preview of the new update at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo.

Roams: Hmm I must have missed that, my bad. I knew that this one was taking longer because of the stuff for the physics card, and I never expected it before June. So it is out a bit later than I thought, but not that much. I'm still shocked that they gave us all respecs. :) Not complaining!

I love this game. I bought CoV but then got CoH cause I'm more of a Hero :) Don't hate cause you haven't got the patience to play it. The fun and VARIETY come from teaming with kool peeps and the occasional PvP for me. It's like an Xmen Universe that you can play in, but you create your character...God Bless

I have both CoV/CoH and though I liked them both in the beginning, I couldn't find the energy to lvl my chars past 12. I found both got boring pretty fast cause it was all so repetitive...

It's also a lot more tedious than WoW. Do the same 3 types of missions over and over and over and over and over. Get my point?

lol, I'm not going to renew my account. It's a fun game but these features took way too long to come out. If only it didn't get boring so fast. :(

BlackIceJoe, Uhm, CoX is going pretty strong. I dont know why you thought it was dying off. It is also popular in Korea and China. Given its nothing like WoW but it can stand its own in comparison to others.

A little too late for some of us previous villians or heroes....

Kawaii, it was supposed to be out probably around February or whenever it was that PhysX released their PPU. Unfortunately the PPU software is still pretty glitchy and needed a lot of work. Typically these updates arrive about once every 4 to 5 months. Also the update came out a week later than most people were expecting, most folks were guessing right before Memorial Day weekend. *Three day weekend for marathon gaming.*

I thought this game was dying out City of heroes I liked more but villains had some good thing too but not as cool as heroes. Maybe if Heroes and Villains did a Guild wars kind of thing there would be more players.

Nope, they were still working on it then. Never listen to all the rumors on the CoX boards-people like to spout off things that have no substance to them. It's out a little earlier than they were thinking it would be able to be.
