City of Heroes

Publisher NCsoft's massively multiplayer online game City of Heroes has quickly gained popularity since its launch in April. The development team at Cryptic Studios has plans in place to continue updating the game with new content up to and including the first planned expansion pack, City of Villains (which will let players play as supervillains), which is scheduled for release sometime in the future.

In the meantime, the game will be enhanced with content updates including new areas to explore, new quests, and one of the most requested features from the game's fans: capes. This Friday, NCsoft and GameSpot will reveal an exclusive movie trailer that shows superhero capes in action. You can reserve the movie for download via GameSpot DLX.

City of Heroes is a massively multiplayer game that lets players create superhero characters. In the game, players patrol the streets of a huge metropolis in search of crime to gain experience that will eventually let them expand their repertoire of superpowers.
