City Of Heroes Seventh Anniversary Celebrations Begin
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

In celebration of the seventh anniversary of the release of City of Heroes NCSoft and Paragon Studios have announced a variety of store discounts and in-game events for the super hero themed MMO. Celebration specials will include a 50% discount on some items in NCSoft's store, an epic series of battles, and a chance to chat with the team.

NCsoft and Paragon Studios are excited to celebrate City of Heroes’ seventh anniversary today – a date that marks seven years worth of unequalled content, 20 Issues of unfolding storylines and millions of players who have created more than 40 million Heroes and Villains and counting.

Over the past seven years, City of Heroes players around the globe have earned more than 15 billion experience points in their journey to save the world or conquer it. Those experience points were earned by playing more than 1,600 missions, 40+ task forces or raids and more than 375,000 user-generated Architect missions – enough content to last someone 3,900 days to play through it all.

City of Heroes broke new ground when it launched in 2004 as the first comic-book inspired MMO and the innovations it delivered set many standards in the MMORPG industry. Super-Sidekicking, user-generated content, virtually limitless character customisation, action-packed battles against groups of enemies, Epic Archetypes, a story-driven morality system, and most recently an inclusive and accessible End Game system to challenge the most experienced players are just a few of the numerous benchmarks the franchise has set.

Seven years later, City of Heroes continues to be the world’s most popular super heroic MMO. This success is due to the millions that have played City of Heroes, and Paragon Studios is proud to have the most passionate, creative and loyal community in the industry, so we’re inviting everyone to join us as we celebrate seven years of super-powered heroism and villainy.

Starting today and continuing over the course of the next few weeks, Paragon Studios will be rolling out special anniversary offers and opportunities, including a chance to jump back into Paragon City with the Seventh Anniversary Reactivation Week where all accounts in good standing are activated for free starting Tuesday, 3rd May up through Tuesday, 10th May.

A complete list of activities to look for includes:

  • From 28th April to 2nd May only, many Booster Packs and Account Services at the NCsoft store are 50% off! Deck out your character in some super heroic wedding attire in celebration of the Royal Wedding, or visit your friends on other servers.
  • Show other players your dedication with the Vanguard pack, anniversary badges, and the new Loyalty emotes
  • Partake in a series of epic in-game battles to save Earth from the invading Praetorian army throughout the month of May.
  • Join the Paragon Studios team for a live Ustream chat on 28th at 03:00 CEST (02:00 BST), and get a sneak peak at next City of Heroes Booster Pack.
  • Fans are also encouraged to look around the web in the coming weeks as we explore how we got here in a variety of commentaries from the developers at Paragon Studios. Hear about their favourite Issues, their fondest memories and their best pranks.

New screenshots are now available for Electronic Arts' upcoming The Sims 3: Generations expansion pack. Players will be able to "take the reins and act out life’s most humorous and memorable moments from childhood to teenage years to adulthood" in the new expansion pack.

Players will be able to capture and keep track of their Sims’ life moments with in-game cameras and upload and share their Sims’ memories and Facebook via the new memory system. Players start off in the imagination-fuelled world of childhood, where they can take dance classes, misbehave with their imaginary friend or goof around in one of three themed tree houses; space rocket, wooden shack or princess. Players may then move on to embrace the drama of the teen years by pulling elaborate pranks such as exploding toilets, color dye in the shower or ding dong ditch, become prom king or queen, or forget the school dance and throw a raging party at their parents’ house. There will be even more creative options to explore with a brand new chemistry set, but they’ll need to use caution, or their Sims might turn themselves into a ghost. As adult Sims, players ride the wave of freedom. They can attend or plan bachelor and bachelorette parties, throw lavish weddings, and go through a mid-life crisis where they may change their hair, style, and more. With a wealth of new options and activities, Sims’ lives are sure to be more interesting in The Sims 3 Generations.

Key Features:

  • New Activities: Sims of every age can have fun! Kids can attend ballet class, hang out in tree houses, or have fun on new playground equipment. Teens can host raging parties, pull pranks, and attend school dances. Adults can suffer midlife crises, and those who engage in extra-marital affairs will face the rumor mill. And so much more!
  • New Celebrations: Whether it’s a hilariously out-of-control bachelorette party, an all-teen party while the parents are out, or a high school graduation, new ways to celebrate life will make every age more fun!
  • New Drama Unfolds: From snubbing school peers to being the focus of neighborhood gossip and even bachelor party hi-jinks, hilarity will ensue when life goes off the beaten path.
  • Find new ways to be creative: Sims will be able to tinkerwith chemistry sets, play in forts, and record with video cameras. Additionally, the new memories system allows players to build a scrapbook and post their memories on Facebook for all of their friends to see.
