City of Titans teases its City of Heroes-inspired aura system

    
19

It’s feeling like superhero week here – Champions Online turning nine, Valiance Online revving up, and now we’ve got a sneak peek of City of Titans’ auras system.

Auras, for those of you who weren’t into the old City of Heroes’ lingo, are basically wild particle effects that float around your character. Want to be on fire? Have water droplets sploosh around you? See rocks crumble from your elbows? Electricity comin’ outta your eyes? You can do that!

“In our last couple of updates, we showed you some costume items and explained how you could unlock them or purchase them. But the Avatar Builder will let you choose more than just the pieces of your costume,” Missing Worlds Media explains. “Auras […] will also be available so you can make your hero (or villain, vigilante, scoundrel or mercenary) look just the way you want. And as with costume pieces, some auras will be available to players from the moment you log in for the first time, and some will need to be unlocked either through the store or gameplay. […] The Avatar Builder doesn’t stop there. You’ll also be able to customize the animations and effects for each of your character’s powers …but that’s a whole other update – with a lot more to see in it.”

We are here for this.

Everything I’ve seen about this game so far looks great! I’m looking forward to this one for sure.

Wait, so will playing a villain really be an option? This is the first “City of Heroes” successor I’ve heard of that offers that, if it’s true. That would definitely help me choose which successor game to root for.

They are actually using a tri-axis alignment system using law / honor / violence.

There has not been a ton of recent in-depth info on the system, AFAIK.

Here is the kickstarter update:

‘unlocked through the store…’

fucking sigh.

That’s not even the quote. You edited out the either/or part where you can unlock them in game.

But the alternative fact sounds much more catchy though! o.O

to me it sounded like there are things you can get in gameplay and others you can get in the store. maybe i need to l2reading comprehension.

All the things in the store are unlockable through playing storylines or attaining badges in game.

It’s looking great, but they really need to get something playable out the door sometime soon.

Looks neat. And I’m sure there are all kinds of crass jokes about having giant floating balls circling you all the time, but I’m far too polite and respectable to make any of them.

Zenyatta will have you know those are prayer beads. And lethal projectiles when magnetically propeled at high speeds. Just saying.
