NCsoft North America has revealed the contents for the City of Villains Collector’s Edition retail game pack that will be released to stores in North America when the game launches later this fall.
City of Villains, developed by Cryptic Studios and published by NCsoft, is the stand-alone sequel to City of Heroes and allows players to create a villainous persona and build a virtual criminal empire. Highlighting the City of Villains Collector’s Edition package is a set of seven limited-edition HeroClix figures from WizKids, composed of three hero figures and four villain figures, including an exclusive Lord Recluse HeroClix, so named because all of the good names were taken.
The City of Villains Collector’s Edition will also contain a DVD version of the game, giving players access to an exclusive in-game cape and chest emblem from Arachnos, the game’s top villain group, and who doesn’t like chests? Also included in the package is a map of The Rogue Isles, the chain of islands that makes up City of Villains.
The Collector’s Edition also includes a book featuring art from City of Villains and City of Heroes, a preview deck of the City of Heroes collectible card game designed by the Alderac Entertainment Group as well as a single limited edition City of Heroes foil collector’s card which you’ll probably just hawk on eBay.
The City of Villains Collector’s Edition will sell at an anticipated price of US$79.99. City of Villains preorder purchases can be applied to the Collector’s Edition or regular edition of the City of Villains game. Subscription pricing for the game will be announced in the fall.
