Calling All Champions!

Champions Online is the superhero MMO that Cryptic Studios is doing instead of Marvel Universe Online.

Champions Online

And based on everything I’ve read so far, I couldn’t be happier. Highlights include…

  • Hi-Octane Excitement: No more boring auto attacks and lengthy recharge times. Champions Online combat is instantaneous — and electrifying!
  • Total customization: Choose from hundreds of different costume pieces, colors and body types to create your character’s one-of-a-kind costume and look.
  • Keep your enemies close: Every hero must have an archenemy. Design your character’s supreme adversary, choosing a name, powers and costume for a superpowered foe to bedevil your hero throughout his or her career.
  • Endless exploration: The battle against evil rages across the world into outer space and alternate dimensions.
  • Make your mark: The story of Champions Online is constantly changing, continually evolving. Villains are defeated. Heroes rise and fall. Cities transform. Your actions may decide the future!

The trailer doesn’t show a whole lot so far, but I am kinda digging the pseudo-cell shading effect…

Marvel who? ;-)
