City Of Heroes: Going Rogue Discussed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Ten Ton Hammer 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 article 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, the upcoming expansion for City of Heroes and City of Villains, will allow players to transition from hero to villain and villain to hero for the first time. We spoke with Matt "Positron" Miller, Senior Lead Producer of City of Heroes, about what the change will entail. “This process is not immediate, it’s not a switch, it’s not a $30 charge. It’s a story that you go through. For heroes, it’s a fall from grace, for villains it’s a redemptive arc. A hero will be a hero for a while and he’ll do enough content that he’ll become a vigilante... do enough of that vigilante stuff and you’ll get kicked out of Paragon City and you’ll end up in the Rogue Isles as a villain.”

“Villains don’t become vigilantes, they become rogues. They become the redemptive sort-of guys that think, ‘Maybe I’m fighting on the wrong side. Maybe I’m not doing everything for the right reasons. Maybe there’s a better way for me to use my powers.’ They’ll get what I term internally as the “Han Solo missions,” the heart-of-gold but wears a grey hat type stuff. Eventually if they do enough of that stuff, they’ll be invited over to Paragon City to become a full fledged hero. ”

Even if you meet the content requirements to change allegiances, there’s no danger of accidentally changing sides. “You’ll have to purposefully do the content, and purposefully make that transition. So you can kind of ride that middle line I talked about - you can really stay a gray hat, and there will be some advantages to doing so. You can go from one zone to another more freely, but you’ll lose some opportunities as well.”
