City of Heroes: Homecoming previews Page 6 content, preps for Halloween, and shares the cost of operations


We’ve got a whole lot of news pouring out of the Homecoming rogue servers for City of Heroes, so let’s dive right in.

  • First off, we’ve got a preview of Page 6 content, which will be introducing a new Sonic Manipulation secondary powerset for Blasters, a whole slew of endgame balance adjustments that will mostly focus on procs per minute and making more powersets a valid pick, a new story arc involving the Vahzilok and Freakshow, and a teaser for some new asymmetrical costume pieces. It’s looking like a whole lot of good stuff, basically.
  • Next up, Halloween is slowly arriving to the game with the addition of the Dr. Kane’s House of Horror Halloween event to the Shadow server and a Halloween makeover for Atlas Park in the game’s beta servers. That event, by the way, has seen an adjustment to rewards since the Bats Aura and the Costume Change Emote are already available to all characters.
  • Finally, the devs have offered a significantly detailed look at costs for the month, outlining infrastructure costs, external services costs, and more. What’s the most interesting here is that one eagle-eyed forumgoer noted that there were no details for lawyer payment, which brought up the question of whether talks with NCSoft had stalled out. A reply outlined that the lawyer tends to not bill for the “smaller bits of work” that have made up the bulk of the case so far, but also points out that “they are handling something a bit more substantial at the moment which likely will get billed.” Make of that what you will.
