Apple Games Features Going Rogue
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games has published a new feature article, this time exploring the gray areas offered by the City of Heroes expansion, Going Rogue. The expansion features a new alignment system, two new primary fictional characters, and the new threat of the parallel universe known as Praetoria. Apple's article includes a description of Going Rogue's new features, comments from Matt Miller, information about creating missions, and a history of Emperor Cole.

Fresh characters begin the game in Praetoria, a newly-added alternate utopian Earth. (Existing characters can travel there too.) They’re neutral, but they can align themselves with the Resistance (hero) or Loyalist (villain) elements in the city. They have plenty of opportunities to shift back and forth between the two, and when they reach the intermediate step of Vigilante or Rogue, they can visit the Rogue Isles or Paragon City, respectively.

“It’s all just shades of gray in Praetoria, which is totally cool from a role-playing perspective,” Miller observes. “You are constantly making tough moral choices that change the course of your character’s story.”

“This is an opportunity to introduce ourselves to new players with a shiny new universe as well as provide a clean slate for veteran players,” lead designer Melissa Bianco says. “Veterans may know our lore from Paragon City or Rogue Isles, but this is an entirely new adventure for them and an opportunity for us to impress and challenge them in new and interesting ways. It’s a completely original game experience, a new world, and a fresh way to experience it.”
