To players who want dibs on the free-to-play version of City of Heroes: Freedom along with the new features offered by Issue 21, the VIP beta is set to open its gates in North America within the next couple of hours. While European gamers will have to wait until tomorrow to try the beta.
“Once that’s done, delve into the next evolution of City of Heroes starting from the new Character creator and its myriad of improvements and additions, straight into the brand new combined tutorial and the updated Atlas Park and Mercy Island!
And while you’re at it, browse through the Paragon Market™ as well as the brand new Paragon Rewards system that supersedes the Veteran Program!
City of Heroes Freedom and Issue 21: Convergence have so much to offer, you will want to make sure you check our Issue 21 Overview page as well as our City of Heroes Freedom mini-site before embarking on the Beta adventure.”
Head over to the City of Heroes forums for detailed instructions on how to install the beta client.
