City Of Heroes Mission Architect Feature Previewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Macworld has posted a new preview of Mission Architect, an upcoming feature for NCSoft's superhero themed MMO, City of Heroes. The update will, for the first time, give players the opportunity to construct their own missions and share them with others in the game.

The latest upgrade to City of Heroes, the iconic superhero massive multiplayer online game which recently came to the Mac after a long run on the PC, is not merely a game feature, but a new game system. City of Heroes: Mission Architect will allow players unrivaled ability to create their own missions and story arcs.

In 19 different zones there will be an “Architecture Entertainment” building where players can build simulations (ie missions) and hop into previously built ones. The Mission Architect uses “tickets” as in-game crrency, and you gain more tickets for finishing entire arcs (rather than repeatedly completing the first level) and you also gain tickets by having other players rate your mission. Tickets go to you account and can be applied to any character. Each account can publish three story arcs that can be rated by their peers.

For detail-focused gamers, City of Heroes has just given you a worthy toolbox. You can insert text during numerous mission events to further the plot, design your own bad guys (or have access to the entire City of Heroes catalogue of villain groups), and even choose among the ten different mission goals to create a real sense of personalized adventuring. During the demo, Joe Morrissey’s British-inspired hero saved a group of journalist-centered heroes from the clutches of a villainous tech company. One of the intrepid heroes was modeled after yours truly — complete with a Mac startup icon on my chest. My battle cry wasn’t exactly fearsome, but memorable nonetheless: “This would never have happened on a Mac!”
