Upcoming Champions Online expansion gets name change, becomes free

Wednesday, 10th February 2010 19:34 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Cryptic has been listening to complaints from its community, and has decided to make the new expansion announced last month a freebie upon release.

According to loads of aggravated users, the paid zone expansion Vibora Bay will be more of a content patch than an expansion and the release of the “Kitchen Sink” fix recently issued was pushed out too soon without the proper amount of testing.

Cryptic has addressed these concerns two ways.

First, the new expansion has been renamed and is now called Revelations. In it, the half-angel/half-demon Therakiel is bent on bringing forth the end times, and come mid-March 2010 it will be free upon release.

Next, the Champions Online team plans to interact with the community in a more transparent way with the implementation of bi-weekly Q&As, a general support blog, monthly dev chats, bi-weekly state of the game announcements, and an all-company supergroup so you can find the devs in the game and share adventures.

Sounds like a start at any rate.

    smart thing to do since the launch version was sooooooooooo lacking in content. Smallest MMO I ever played… and have since left.

    I’ve heard nearly nothing but bad about the game myself, apart from the character editor which it apparently pretty good. On the Star Trek Online forums during the beta its name kept coming up when there was something bad to be compared.

    Yeah, Champions is and odd MMO. There seems to be like 3 giant maps comprising of a bunch of similar looking but different-honest-guvnor area’s dolling out generic quests. The people playing it were generally all right aside from the rampant amount of serious furries in the game. It’s a fun game but not worth the $10 or what ever a months. $5 a month would be fairer for the game to be honest.

    I’m not fucking kidding either. It was the most scared I’ve ever been on the internet.
