Every great hero has a nemesis, an equally powerful and evil villain...
Presenting City of Villains, the first expansion of the comic book-inspired massively multiplayer game, City of Heroes!
Developed by the brilliant minds at Cryptic Studios, City of Villains offers yet another unique way to play online simultaneously with thousands of others.
Players design their villain using a similar innovative character creation system as in City of Heroes, with billions of different size, color and styling options. Players then work their way up the ladder of a villain organization in order to gain super powers. Once endowed with super abilities, players enter Paragon City and begin their own reign of terror. But here they'll face the constant threat of Paragon City's heroes and authorities. In time, player villains can create their own organization and erect a secret base. They'll always need to be on guard against the continual vigilance of player heroes.
Consensual Player vs. Player combat will be introduced, as well as team vs. team play. Entire super groups of good and evil will battle it out for possession of devices and relics that could determine the fate of the city, the world, and even the universe.
Venture into the stunning 3-D world of Paragon City and the Fallen Isles. Play alone, team with friends, or undertake personalized plots to create bedlam in a world already hanging in precarious balance. Villains and heroes battle for domination!
