City Of Heroes: Going Rogue Q&A
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story has posted a new interview with Paragon Studios' Matt Miller, Senior Lead Designer for Going Rogue, the upcoming expansion for the comic book themed City of Heroes. The Q&A covers some of the content planned for the upcoming add-on, which will feature a new alignment system to allow heroes and villains the chance to switch sides, two new primary fictional characters, and the new threat of the parallel universe known as Praetoria.

Going Rogue takes place in an alternate universe. Is this move an attempt to capture the popularity of the alternate universe storylines present in some of the major comic book company lines?
We've had alternate universes in CoH since even before Issue 1, like the Rikti Homeworld, the Hydra dimension, and of course the Shadow Shard. They are definitely a staple of the genre and we'd be remiss to ignore them.

Will players be able to use the Mission Architect system to create Praetoria missions?
Yes, the Mission Architect is a holographic simulator, so players can use it to make whatever type of missions they want. I expect some players will start making up their own stories about the world of Praetoria via Mission Architect right away, based on the (admittedly) very little information we've released at this time. They will have to wait for the release of the expansion to get access to any new maps, NPCs or villain groups we've included, however.

Will Going Rogue introduce new missions to the game, or simply allow hero characters to experience villain content and vice-versa?
Lots of new missions. Lots. It's not just "make your Mastermind into a Hero" and call it a day. What is the path your Mastermind takes? What is the trigger that got them to consider a line between good and evil? What made them cross that line?
