City of Heroes Gets Visual Upgrade

A few years ago when I worked at Billy Wilson's non-VE gaming site, NCSoft offered me a six month press pass to City of Heroes. That had to be one of the best games I've played in a long time. Who wouldn't like to play a super hero? with that said, there's no question as to why the MMORPG is still around.

Now it seems that NCSoft is revamping the visuals (aka Ultra Mode) in the next update called Issue 17, "Dark Mirror." Slated for this April, the company is not only throwing in a revamped graphics rendering process, but other goodies such as improvements to the Mission Architect, enhancements to UI and game systems, new badges, new missions, new emotes, and more.

For more info, head here. Haven't checked out the super-powered MMORPG? Go have a trial run.

  • So, good thing they put an "Ultra Mode" stamp on the enhanced pic so we could tell which one is supposed to have the better graphics.

  • Played this game for like a month... was over it. Character creation is excellent. Questing was terribad. Maybe it is better now... maybe not. I didn't stick around to find out.
