City of Heroes Going Free-to-Play

The City of Heroes Website announces that City of Heroes Freedom will launch later this year, brining a free-to-play component to Paragon Studios' MMORPG. This will be a hybrid method which will still include subscriptions as well as the ability to play gratis. There's an interview on the topic on Gamasutra, and here's word on what this means to existing subscribers:

All current City of Heroes subscribers will automatically be upgraded to VIP accounts when City of Heroes Freedom launches. When City of Heroes Freedom launches, you will continue to enjoy all of the subscription benefits and content you enjoy today, as well as brand-new exclusive rewards, features, and services. Additionally, beginning on July 1, 2011, you will earn 400 Paragon Points each month. When City of Heroes Freedom launches, you will become a VIP player, and you will start with a tidy sum of Paragon Points to spend in the new in-game Paragon Market.

Have they fixed or tweaked the debt system at all recently? I stopped playing, oh, 5 years ago? due to the debt system. I would die so much trying to keep my team mates alive that I was constantly in debt and couldn't keep pace with leveling. Hit 23 or something and quit.

I just started playing it again a little over the weekend. I had to start over, since I had NO idea where my main was at story-wise or where to go for my level.

  • I think you're debt free up to or through level 10

  • After that, death = debt


  • However, to me it looks like they either reduced the debt or it scales as you go up. At level 13-ish it's quite quick to work off -- by the end of a mission I've usually worked off a couple of deaths worth of debt.
