NCsoft presents Issue 12 Midnight hour to CoH and CoV - Image 1One of the fun things behind any superhero game is the ability to try out new super powers. Fortunately, NCsoft has chosen to reveal the complete Issue 12 powerset proliferation list for City of Heroes and City of Villains players.

NCsoft also explained the rationale why some archetypes received certain powers, while others didn’t. For example, it only made sense for an archetypes such as Controllers to receive the skill Plant Control.
