Along with EVE Online
and World of Warcraft,
Mac users have another popular MMO to play with. It took a while, but NCsoft has finally brought their superhero massively multiplayer online game, City of Heroes
, to OS X. When we heard the game was ported over by TransGaming
, we flinched a bit, but NCsoft has assured us that there is no funny DRM on the release, and our colleagues over at Massively
have tried out the client early, and put to rest any major questions about the quality of the port, saying that it runs well, save for a few bumps when the action gets crowded on screen.
As promised, the Mac "Special Edition"
is a digital release, and comes with both the City of Heroes
and the City of Villians
expansion, as well as a month of game time (after that there's a subscription fee to play along), and two exclusive items: a Mission Teleporter power, to get you directly into missions, and a special "Valkyrie" costume set. The game is available for $19.99
over on NCsoft's site right now, so if you've been waiting to get some superhero MMO action underway, now's your chance.
