NCsoft today revealed the plans for the first update to City of Villains, the massively multiplayer online role-playing game dedicated to super villainy. Issue 7: Destiny Manifest will be a free auto update for paying subscribers to the PC game and will be released this April.

New Mayhem Missions will see bad guys attacking Paragon City with new timed missions. The open-ended missions let gamers rob stores, take on the police, and harass citizens, while destroying city blocks and gaining bonus rewards.

Villains will also get a new set of more than 300 missions, new Patron Power Pools, new Power sets, and the high-level zone of Grandville, where mutated spiders and Lord Recluse will do their best to stop gamers.

City of Heroes will also benefit from the update, with new user-interface tweaks, graphical upgrades, and features being installed in both games.

City of Villains is rated T for Teen and retails for $39.99. For more information on the game, zoom over to GameSpot's review.
