The longest consistently operating superhero MMORPG is hitting a significant milestone this week, with Champions Online celebrating the 10th anniversary of its launch on September 1st, 2009. Cryptic is pulling out all of the stops for this occasion with four weeks of events throughout the month.

There’s even brand-new content to enjoy: “A new, mysterious hero, Top Ten, has arrived in Millennium City, and he wants to take you on a tour of Champions History! Each week of the anniversary, he’ll have a new mission based on the things you voted as your top ten favorites in Champions Online! This first week, he’ll send you on a scavenger hunt to find heroes and civilians throughout the game.”

Other activities that heroes can enjoy include saving cats from trees, watching Sapphire in concert, and earning a retro Defender costume that’s inspired by the tabletop game.

It’s almost amusing how CoH unofficial is so popular but official legit games like CO are struggling to retain players. CoH is obviously the preferred game in this category and I hope NCSoft are interested.

CO is such an oddity with how it’s sort of in maintenance mode but not really at the same time. They keep occasionally adding bits and bobs to it and the gameplay is quite fun for what’s there imo.

Really makes you wonder what it could’ve been like if it had more support, especially because none of the superhero MMOs really tried to capitalize on the rise of the MCU + DC’s hits/misses outside of the now-defunct Marvel Heroes.

Wasn’t this at one point in development going to be a Marvel MMO?

yeah, the death of marvel heroes makes this game worthy of songs. Against all odds CO is here, your toons are here. You can login and play them as you wish.
COX is dead. MXO is dead. MH is dead.

Happy anniversary CO.
