City of Heroes allows its players to become crime-fighting superheroes in the fictional city of Paragon. The game's design is mainly based on the style of golden and silver age superhero comics, featuring a colorful 3D world in a third person view. Although the game offers no more than five basic archetypes, player characters are highly customizable in appearance and skill development. Especially the included costume-designer for heroes is a powerful and popular tool.

As a Massive Multiplayer Online Game City of Heroes attaches great importance to teamwork, player versus player-combat was introduced with arenas spread throughout the city later (the first standalone expansion "City of Villains" also added whole PvP-zones and assaultable player-headquarters).

The Deluxe European edition of City of Heroes includes, besides the original game:

  • A digest of three printed issues of the City of Heroes comic
  • Printed comic by "PvP"-artist Scott Kurtz
  • Map of Paragon City
  • Exclusive in-game content (VIP badge, Prestige Power Slide power and unique cape)
  • A 'Buddy disk' 30 day free trial for a friend
