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.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
