MMORPGs and More
Be a hero at NCsoft's booth
 
Bring your comic-book fantasies to life with City of Heroes, an massively-multiplayer online role-playing game in which players assume the role of a superhero in Paragon City, and then take on aliens, criminals, and supervillains. Millions of possible character combinations ensure that your hero's appearance and powers will be unique.
 
Another MMORPG, Exarch takes place thousands of years in the future, in a sci-fi dystopia where factions of good and evil clash. Player quests are integrated into almost every level of the game, making leveling up more than a formulaic fighting affair.
 
Guild Wars from Arena.net (the creative folks behind Blizzard's Battle.net) offers a more traditional fantasy MMORPG setting, but takes a unique approach by emphasizing tactical combat and striving to eliminate spawn camping, drop theft, and endless traveling.
 
NCsoft will also show its own Lineage II: The Chaotic Chronicle, a prequel to its hit Lineage. Lineage II features siege combat and uses politics patterned after medieval times.
 
Two titles from developer Phantagram include Shining Lore, a brightly colored MMORPG that will appeal to novices of the genre, and Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders, sequel to the successful RTS in which humans fight against dark legions in 3D battles that can include up to 150 characters.
