The Going Rogue expansion for City of Heroes was (sort of) announced earlier today through SteetWide Concepts, and now NCsoft has seen fit to make it official.
This will be the first major expansion for the City of Heroes franchise since City of Villains was launched in 2005, and promises to “blur the line between heroes and villains”.
Both heroes and villains will be thrust into Praetoria, which is governed by Tyrant, the evil incarnation of the game’s main protagonist, Statesman. As both heroes and villains go forth to deal with this menace, it will cause the opposing forces to question their loyalties.
A new alignment system has been implemented allowing each side to switch teams, along with additional missions and two new characters, Maelstrom and Desdemona, to represent the alignment shift in the game’s lore.
More details are expected in the “coming months”.
Press release is below.

Mention of the pack appears to have been removed.
The add-on will be only the second in the game’s history, the first being City of Villains.
Going Rogue will introduce the world of Praetoria and a new alignment system “that explores the shades of gray that lie between Heroes and Villains,” apparently.
