City of Heroes game source released, new servers coming online #CityOfHeroes #Gaming #EdgeTalks @Discord
Twitter user @EdgeTalks documents the resurrection of City of Heroes, It’s been an 8 year fight to bring the game back. And judging by the gamers who are flocking to Discord to find servers, this game is still very popular.
“It was uploaded onto a Discord server someone started who we don’t know, like 300 people congregated there and now the files have spread like wildfire. It’s not the character files. It also doesn’t contain the mission files or NPCs, but it’s a big piece of the puzzle for reverse engineering the game that no one but Leo had before.”
A Reddit thread has continuing updates on the progress of getting things going. Note: Always be careful of unfamiliar torrents and executables, we would not want a rogue file to damage their gaming machine.
Here is a YouTube video from two days ago discussing how to get to the test server.
Keep an eye on the gaming news sites, Twitter, Reddit, and Discord as this unfolds.
