City Of Heroes  



Old City of Heroes accounts slowly being reactivated

Old City of Heroes accounts slowly being reactivated photo



If you're not yet aware that City of Heroes is going free-to-play, well, now you are. In fact, current subscribers have had access to the new content for a little over a week now! A forum post came up the other day stating that their old account now had access to the servers with a "Premium" status and a community member confirmed that old accounts were slowly but surely being reactivated.

Today, NCsoft declared officially that inactive accounts are indeed being reactivated. This is a gradual process, so if you're like me and haven't had your account switched back on yet, don't worry. If you've never had an account but want to get in on the free-to-play action, you'll have to wait a little bit longer as you'll be given access in the upcoming week.

City of Heroes remains one of my favorite MMOs of all time and I cannot wait for my account to be reactivated. I have so many questions form my absence! Who is this guy with the gun hand? Where's Lord Recluse? Should I "Go Rouge?" Can I still farm Rikti Monkeys over by Monster Island? I must know!
