Keeping City Of Heroes Up To Date
6:09 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Paragon Studios recently released a May Producer's Letter focusing on updates to the company's super hero themed MMO, City of Heroes. The posting offers insight into how the developers handle the process of updating older content, and how they integrate all new content into the game world.

One of the drawbacks of updating existing content is that the original content is replaced. When we make these updates, we go to great lengths to avoid permanently removing things from the game. Fortunately, the Menders of Ouroboros give you the ability to experience some of this legacy content in its original state, or near to, and you can still play the old version of Story Arcs or Task and Strike Forces if you wish. When we must remove content, we try to bring it back when we have the technology or a great idea about how to make it work. In recent years we have revived the Cathedral of Pain and the Calvin Scott Task Force after long hiatuses. I certainly can't promise that we won't ever need to remove something from the game, but we give a great deal of consideration to the ways we can keep familiar favorites around when the time comes to make a change. In the end, if we can keep something around without sacrificing our ability to improve the game, we make every effort.
