Another pay MMO swiches to Free to Play

Post by {FB}Zebitty on Wed 26 Jan 2011, 8:24 am

Champions Online has gone to the free to play model

http://www.champions-online.com/

I used to play a bit of this, back in the day. Superhero MMOs are quite fun, esp once you get into the mid levels and you start acquiring cool powers like flying and teleportation. Travelling about in MMO worlds can be slow and at times a bit boring, but being able to fly/teleport lets you get right into the action (or escape it Smile)

The character editor is INSANELY detailed. Think of just about any existing superhero and the modeller lets you reproduce the look down the even the smallest details, so of course, if you have your own original character appearance, there are TONS of options.

Also, the game has a very strong 70's comic book quality to the graphics, so if you're a DC/Marvel/Action fan from childhood, this will bring back memories.

Quite good fun.

Update - got this the other night and been playing it for a bit - it's really good!!

The graphics are a bit dated (for 2011), but it's not a big deal, since the look of the game is intentionally 'comic book' anyway. If you ever watched the old batman series .. with the POW and ZAP and WHAM in big letters during fights etc .. heaps of fun. All the dialog boxes (character sheet, inventory, character dialogs etc) all look cartoony as does the mission log and maps.

Just got my first travel power today (teleport) and it's tons of fun .. blitting around from one rooftop to the next. I've opted for a shadowy ninja like character called Fade, so thought the teleport power would be better than flight or super speed.

Probably make a mind control guy next with flying powers and hypnotism etc.

Starting to wonder if the new Hero MMO (DC Universe Online) might be worth a look - being a super hero / villian is quite entertaining Smile

If anyone else grabs this game (the free one - or the new paid one for that matter) let me know.

Hey s3v - i see you have DC Online Universe.

How is it? Are you playing a hero or a villain?
