City of Heroes Going Rogue Coming July 2010Paragon Studios and NCSoft give this MMORPG a proper expansion, as well as a fantastic music composer.05.26.10 - 9:35 PM
Paragon Studios' MMORPG City of Heroes
went through one major expansion a few years back when they released City of Villains
. Since then, they've done plenty of episodic content updates, but no proper expansion have come out for years.
In July, that changes with City of Heroes Going Rogue. In this expansion, players will be able to freely change between "hero" and "villain" status in a bizarro-style mirror world known as Praetoria. Game-changing mechanics, such as the ability to summon demons, will be part of the expansion's content.
Also noteworthy to audiophiles everywhere is that the "Going Rogue" expansion will have an orchestral score composed by none other than Jason Graves. Graves is an award-winning composer of film, television, and games. He doesn't have many RPG scores on his resume (to my knowledge, this is his first big one), but outside of RPGs, he is perhaps best known for his work on the soundtrack for the 2008 survival horror Dead Space.
