City of Heroes is a computer game that allows you to interact with many other people. First, you choose an archetype of sorts, a hero for City of Heroes, and a villain for City of Villains, and then you get to design your own unique and special costume. You can even determine your own history or rise to being what you are today, creating a fictional account of your character which allows you to enrich the entire character.
In fact, that is one of the most important part of the game, the type of character you choose, as it is the one that will be going forth on the missions and what you choose will alter the destined path of your character and the outcome of the game. You can choose between origins, such as Natural, Magic, Science, Mutation, and Technology. By choosing what kind of origin your character had, you will then choose what kind of archetype your hero falls under, things like Blasters, Controllers, Defenders, Scrappers, and Tankers, each with their own traits of personalities and expertise.
When you begin the game, your main funds of points will come from how much experience you are able to gain, and all of this will come as you defeat your enemies and complete all the missions you are assigned and finish discovering and searching through the various zones. You will be able to improve your health and also gain various powers, too, all which contributes to your storage of points.
You will enjoy the entire game in the volatile and varied city of Paragon City, where war walls divide it up into regions that are hazardous and haggard. You will be able to travel to these different zones where you will combat against dangerous enemies and other kinds of vicious foes, if you are playing as a hero. You will be able to jog or sprint to the various places and you will have a great arsenal of powers to choose from, such as Super Speed, Super Jumping, and various other things like Flight, in some cases, as well.
You will also have more missions to complete, the more of a participant that you are. For instance, if you are a hero, you might have a task force that you are a part of, and if you are a villain you will have a strike force. Once you are on one of these teams, your group will have certain assignments to fulfill and no one else may join or help you. Thus, the entire team will be responsible for getting the work done in a unified fashion and will continue till it has been finished. You will be able to get different sets of powers, as well, and together with your team you will work to perform raids, either along with heroes and villains, or separately.
Since the game was inspired by the comic books where superheroes worked together, the game strongly relies upon this sense of shared unity and teamwork and that is why this computer game allows you to get very interactive with other players all over the world.
