City Of Heroes Issue 19 Overview Page Unveiled
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

NCSoft and Paragon Studios have released a new overview page for the upcoming Issue 19: Alpha Strike update for the company's comic book hero themed MMO, City of Heroes. The patch will include introduce the Alpha Slot system, high level task forces, new Zone Events, and alternate power animations.

The Alpha Slot
Issue 19 unveils the long-awaited Alpha Slot*, the first part of the new Incarnate* system that gives high-level characters access to new powers and challenges. Unlocking the Alpha Slot is no easy task. Players must first learn what it means to exceed the definition of Hero or Villain to become an Incarnate. Mender Ramiel in Ouroboros guides players on this journey.

Two New Task Forces
Challenges already await new Incarnates. The Praetorians have begun their invasion of Primal Earth. Protecting Paragon City™ and the Rogue Isles™ from such overwhelming forces requires the greatest Heroes and Villains (as well as Rogues and Vigilantes) to work together. Two familiar faces will help in stopping the invasion: Apex and Tin Mage.
    Apex Task Force (requires Going Rogue expansion): Apex has joined the Vanguard, and he helps organize your team of Incarnates to stop the Praetorian initial assault. Face off against the Anti-Matter Clockwork, War Walkers, and the Arch-Villain Battle Maiden before they can destroy Paragon City. If you succeed in this battle, the war is yet to be won.

    Tin Mage Task Force (requires Going Rogue expansion): The lost hero Tin Mage has returned to help coordinate an assault into Praetoria to stop the invasion cold. Your team strikes into the very heart of Nova Praetoria to confront Neuron, Bobcat, and a Praetorian army.
