NCsoftTM Europe is pleased to report on the success of last night's City of Villains preview party, held in London's prestigious Tower 42. A great time was had by all as the cream of Europe's video gaming journalism came together to celebrate the imminent arrival of Cryptic Studio's latest opus. Studio head Jack Emmert was on hand to show off his game and keep the beautiful and deadly Ghost Widow at bay.
City of Villains is the latest offering from developer Cryptic StudiosTM, the creators of the US chart-topping City of HeroesTM. Both City of Heroes and City of Villains are designed to run in conjunction with each other, and also stand alone as single games in their own right. City of Villains will be available at the end of October, exclusively for PC, simultaneously in Europe and North America.
In City of Villains, players will be able to take on villainous personas, customising villain costumes and building bases for their super-power groups. Both the villain costume creator and the base creator will offer the same type of nearly limitless customisation options that made the City of Heroes costume creator so acclaimed.
In addition to a variety of technological advances and a huge set of criminal missions and events within the Rogue Isles, City of Villains will also include player-versus-player (PvP) action and the ability to fight against player controlled heroes from the City of Heroes game within special designated PvP zones.
More information on both City of Villains is available at the official European web site:
