On April 27th, 2004, NC-Soft launched the super-hero-themed MMORPG City of Heroes. The game ran for over eight years, until it was shut down on November 30th, 2012. In April of 2019, however, once again demonstrating that no hero ever truly dies, City of Heroes has been resurrected! This page is a "how-to" for those wanting to play this amazing game that still holds up pretty well against modern MMOs!
Step 1: Head to https://score.savecoh.com/ and create an account.
Step 2: Once you've created your account, on that same page, click where it says "Game Account" (below the login bar) to create your actual City of Heroes account.
Step 3: It's time to download the installer! If you're a windows user, download Tequila and if you're a Mac user, download Island Run. Once you've got them downloaded, run them and you'll install the game client. NOTE: Because the game is just coming back, it can sometimes take up to an hour to download all the file (they're not all that large, they're just highly in-demand).
If your installer seems to get stuck, exit the program and re-run it!
Step 4: Once the installation is complete, click "Play!" You'll enter in the account name & password you chose in step 2. You'll see a number of different servers. All of them are equally good, so choose whatever name you like best. If you're looking for me, I play on Excelsior, and my global is @Mindscythe. Feel free to say hello!
