This summer, online gamers across the globe will be able to work together in Game of Heroes co-op missions that NCsoft is positioning as the unmissable blockbusters of the year.
In their own words: "The City of Heroes Summer Blockbuster Event features a non-stop adrenaline rush as players take the lead role in back-to-back adventures inspired by classic action movies. Instead of watching a movie, take yourself centre stage as you fight for honour and glory in the arena, or use your enhanced skills to plan the perfect casino heist – all with the trademark City of Heroes twist."
It's a co-op event for four players from levels 15-50, accessed by the Team-Up Teleporter, and available to play from July 10th.
First up comes a series of Gladatorial trials. Players must work together to defeat three champions of a coliseum and their dangerous henchmen, finally facing a great God-Champion.
Then comes a casino heist. A vast fortune hides behind the doors of Tyrant's Palace Casino, in a job that could set players up for life. But first they have to tackle armed guards, a state-of-the-art security system and impenetrable vault.
