cohrouge-sbBack when City of Heroes first launched I played it a bit. It was cool to have a MMORPG where you could build your own superhero and live out your Marvel fantasies online. The game lost my interest rather quickly though and I stopped playing before I reached any sort of rank.

Fans of CoH will be glad to hear that the game has a new expansion pack coming called City of Heroes Rogue. The expansion takes players to a parallel universe where the city is ruled by Statesman’s opposite called Tyrant.
