Game Description
From the soaring skylines of Paragon City to the savage slums of the Rogue Isles, there is only one thing that joins these two warring sides - the eternal battle of good and evil between them. Rise to the challenge as a hero or sink into the criminal underworld as a villain in a unique online game played with thousands of other players. The battle has only just begun.

The Good Versus Evil Combined Edition has both City of Heroes and City of Villains games, including the recent, massive expansion Issue 7: Destiny Manifest which introduced dynamic player-versus-player zones and one-of-a-kind villain Mayhem Missions. City of Heroes, allows players to create characters with completely original costumes and powers, then fight criminals and villains who are terrorising Paragon City. In City of Villains, players get to show off their bad side by creating villainous characters whose job it is to build a criminal empire and wreak havoc in the Rogue Isles.

In addition to being able to create almost limitless costume styles and hero and villain bases, the Good Versus Evil Combined Edition provides a wide array of special features, including special in-game prestige travel powers and new hero and villain costume pieces.

The retail package comes with 30-days of free play after which players only need to pay £8.99 per month to have full access to both of the games.

Story Background
In the year 2002, we learned that we were not alone.

On May 23rd, 2002 – a day that will be forever remembered for its wicked barbarity – the world was suddenly and deliberately attacked. A thousand points of light lit up the sky across America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia and each light was a gateway into hell. The Rikti declared war on all of us.

The Rikti attack was well-coordinated and clearly planned out months or years in advance. Tens of thousands of alien invaders poured into our world, bent on our destruction. The heroes of the world banded together, and finally turned the tide. The cost to Earth and her heroes was immense, but finally the back of the Rikti army was broken by Hero 1 and Omega Team’s sacrifice.

Cut off from their homeworld, the Rikti cells that remained retreated to the shadows, fighting a guerrilla war for their continued existence. The rebuilding began, and veterans spoke of the Rikti War as a thing of the past. Then the signs began again, but we did not see them.

Strange anomalies and seismic activity on the moon caused catastrophic tidal surges on Earth, causing the Overbrook Dam to burst and flood sections of Faultline in Paragon City. Satellites transmissions were interrupted by “space static.’ Contact with the moon base and space station became spotty, and then silent. There were warnings from Vanguard, but we did not listen.

Once the United Nation Security Council’s elite super-powered hero force, Vanguard was struggled to rebuild after the war. The survivors made up a skeleton force and their dire warnings were ignored in the joyful days after the war, written off as fear-mongering and paranoia.

Today, the skies over Paragon City are filled with dark grey thunderheads. It is the same in the Rogue Isles, Europe, and across the globe. Small ships dart through the heavy weather … and there are so very many of them….The Rikti have returned.
