As you may have heard, City of Heroes, one of the oldest superhero MMORPGs, is no more. But its spirit lives on, apparently. In a Kickstarter campaign.
The campaign is for a game called City of Titans — a superhero MMORPG, much like its spiritual predecessor, City of Heroes. It will be a buy-to-play game, supported with a non-pay-to-win cash shop and optional VIP subscriptions. Missing Worlds Media, the group developing the game, actually consists of over a hundred self-professed City of Heroes fans, whose mission is to "deliver a unique massively multiplayer online roleplaying game, created from the community of a lost universe, to build a new community for a new world."
The project has quite the momentum. In a few hours, more than 300 backers already pledged over $US50,000 — and these numbers are rising steadily. Provided the campaign reaches its goal of $US320,000 (at this point, it most likely will), City of Titans' initial beta release will be out in mid-to-late 2015.
