The benefit of a game like Champions Online taking place in a setting roughly analogous to the real worlds is that unlike in Neverwinter, you don’t need to invent a new reason for the celebration. Of course, CO is also doing more than just having you celebrate; instead, the game is having players take place in a desperate fight against enemies in the Red Winter Alert to grab Patriot Tokens and unlock costume rewards until July 15th. It’s a fight against a potential resurrection of the Cold War, so it’s appropriately patriotic.Star Trek Online really can’t have you celebration one nation on Earth, so the game is compensating by just having a nice big sale until July 5th. You get 20% more microtransaction currency by buying some during the event, and you also get 25% off everything in the store, with a full 35% off legendary bundles. That’s a rather substantial tilt if you’re looking to buy up some ships along the way.
