PWE and Cryptic Studios have just announced that Champions Online’s latest content update will land on the public test server today. It’s called Teleios Ascendant, and if you’re a gold subber to the game, you and your group of level 40 superheroes can preview it on the PTS.

“In the wake of Supervillain Onslaught and the resulting rampage of super-powered clones, UNTIL has activated ‘Project Frankenstein.’ This new UNTIL Special Project under the command of Major Paul Mason keeps watch on the activities of the mad cloning genius, Teleios. Recently, UNTIL agents have discovered Teleios was nearing completion of his ‘Ascendency Formula,’ enabling him to become Master of Humanity. UNTIL has authorized a UNITY strike force comprised of the strongest heroes to take him down!”

After playing the content, I can say this definitely feels like a setup for future content. The “Epic” lair is pretty much a high end challenge for the strongest of teams. There isn’t a lot of story to it (Teleios finally putting to use all that he learned from giving Heroes Onslaught devices I guess), and you are going to be fighting 4 different familiar bosses with new gameplay mechanic twist that require a lot of team work. 

The lair itself is not that big of an update, what is big is the numerous updates to powers and devices. Legacy devices have now been added to the Q-Store and Drifter store so you can now purchase them individually instead of hoping RNG gods bless you. There are new types of Mods, new gear, and new devices, plus a new power. 

Rather than release a major single thing, they are basically releasing a thousand small updates.

Wait, is that second picture one of hell frozen over?

Geering Tamanous So speaking honest fact is whining to you because it doesn’t match you opinion?

That aside, I speak of this from RECENT experience in the game where a bud and I returned to play our day 1 early release accounts for a couple months and the payment structure and lack of content addition over the years made the game unplayable for us.

The only sin here is you making presumptions.

CastagereShaikura I was honestly thinking it was an april fool’s joke come early. I don’t recall the last time I heard about CO getting a content update.
I used to play the crap out of that game when it launched, but it went down-hill really fast so I moved on to greener pastures. Now I get my superhero kicks out of marvel heroes.

When i woke up and saw this I thought it was a joke to be honest.  This gives me a reason to play some CO later after STO.

Tamanous Geering Wasn’t that YEARS ago?
Why do you people keep whining about this?
And don’t tell me it’s because you loved the game. That’s not reasonable at all.
Holding grudges about games, Jesus Intercourse, I swear.

Geering My reason for not playing is the conversion to the total crap f2p model from PWE.

I’ve had good fun with this game.
The reason I don’t play it any more is simply due to lack of time – an MMOs worst enemy.
I thoroughly enjoyed it & I hope it stays up for many, many more years.
