Die Crew von GamingGroove konnte Jack Emmert und Mike Crouch ein paar Fragen stellen. Hauptthema ist natürlich die Zukunft von City of Heroes und der aktuelle Status. Die Entwickler planen weitere Verbesserungen und verschiedenste neue Features, angeblich soll sogar bald ein Pen&Paper Rollenspiel erscheinen.
GG: Are you planning on creating more class types and powers any time soon for the heroes?
CoH: We certainly are. Expansion 3 introduces an Epic Archetype -- the alien Kheldians. In order to play one of these energy beings a player must first attain level 50 with a single character. After that, he can make as many Kheldians as he\'d like. The goal with these Epic Archetypes is not simply to provide a new Archetype, but also to immerse the player in the game\'s rich mythology. As players will see, the Kheldians are deeply intertwined with the history and villain groups of Paragon City. In following expansions, we hope to continue opening up more of these Epic Archetypes.
GG: How quickly has the server population expanded and did it meet or exceed your expectations?
CoH: Sales were about 30% above Cryptic\'s most optimistic projections. Admittedly, we are a first time developer, so we didn\'t know how our game would be received. NCSoft, however, had the utmost confidence in our product and believed that it would be very successful. And lo and behold -- it was! I never would have believed that City of Heroes would be a best seller for four months running. Never.
