City of Heroes Celebrates Fourth Anniversary

Today is the four year anniversary of the release of City of Heroes and to celebrate the NCSoft NorCal team has decided to create a City of Heroes/City of Villains calendar for fanatics of the game. The downloadable calendar features each of the 12 “Issues” to have been released over the course of the games release, one for each month of the year.

The calendar also includes a message from Matt “Positron” Miller about a new feature the team is working to introduce over the next few months:

“…I can’t tell you how excited I am for our game’s future, and although we have some major announcements yet to be made, one of the things I can talk about is a feature that we are planning. Similar in concept to our character creator, it allows you, the players, to create missions and story arcs for your characters and others to participate in…”

You can find the calendar on the City of Heroes website later today, so that you can keep all your Super Hero type appointments in order.

Here’s some interesting facts about City of Heroes since its launch:

  • More than 32 million characters created - that’s 4 times the population of New York City!
  • Players have spent a combined 292 centuries playing City of Heroes and City of Villains
  • More than 100 million items have been traded through the consignment (auction) houses since they were launched in 2007
