There's been a lot of news lately about that -other- super hero MMO but that doesn't mean that big things aren't happening at Paragon Studios and with the team behind City of Heroes. Our sister site MMORPG.com, recently had the opportunity to check in with CoH Producer Nate Birkholz to find out what's new with City of Heroes. Check it out and then be sure to comment below!
Do you find the Superhero genre limiting? In terms of setting, characters, good vs. evil?
The superhero genre is remarkably broad. It incorporates science fiction, horror, fantasy, history, military, action, adventure… Even a little romance and a healthy dose of sex. We’ve told stories about alien invasions, secret societies, unrequited love, magical talismans, Orwellian dystopias, and scientific hubris. We’ve let players become paragons of truth and justice, infamous miscreants, as well as epitomes of fallen virtue or unlikely redemption. We have drawn lines in black and white and filled between those lines in endless shades of gray. So I’d say we haven’t found the limits yet.
