To mark the 9th anniversary of the launch of "City of Heroes", the game that's inspired "Heroes and Villains"
as its spiritual successor, we've made a number of updates, including a full revamp of the official "Heroes and
Villains" website and forums, posted our first official screenshot, and launched the very first teaser trailer
for the game.

This week, we’ve been continuing the work to combine the previous separated character selection and character creation areas, moving over GUI elements and re-enabling their functions. We’ve also taken the opportunity to reconfigure the layout of the character new selection area within the larger combined area, adding more assets to help flesh it out and create the right kind of feeling for players when they log in to the game.
On the non-technical side of things, we’ve also started the full-scale development of the lore and story of the game, and have been posting a bit of previously developed material related to the game setting, especially in regards to other locations on Earth, and not just Titan City.
In addition to this, as part of our mission to create a community focused game, we’ve also opened up threads where anyone can post suggestions for a variety of subjects, including buildings, places, streets and other points of interest in Titan City, ideas for groups and characters, as well as fictional brands and logos to flesh out the game world – and although these might seem to be aimed mostly at roleplayers who would like to add their own piece of personal lore to the game, anyone if welcome to give their input.
As far as ownership and usage rights related to suggestions go, we retain a non-exclusive right to use suggestions in any way we feel is suitable for the game, while the person who makes a suggestion continues to be free to reuse it in any other place and in any way they choose – we feel that this is a fair way of dealing with the matter of community suggestions in a way that gives both us and the people making the suggestions the freedom to use the ideas in their own ways.

Have a heroic/villainous weekend!
