NCsoft Europe releases 'Good Versus Evil' retail package, combining City of Heroes and City of Villains

New retail pack offers great value and exclusive in-game goodies

Wednesday 13th September/...NCsoft® Europe is pleased to announce the imminent release of the City of Heroes® "Good Versus Evil Combined Edition" - a retail package combining the blockbuster game City of Heroes with its award-winning follow-up City of Villains.

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, released in Europe in February 2005, allows players to create characters with completely original costumes and powers, then fight criminals and villains who are terrorising Paragon City. In the October 2005 follow-up, 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 special in-game items will also be available to current City of Heroes and City of Villains players via direct serial code purchase from the PlayNC® website beginning September 29 (

"With seven huge updates already launched, and an eighth on its way, both City of Heroes and City of Villains is bigger and better than ever, making now an excellent time to take a first peek into our extravagant world of super-powered mayhem," says Max Brown, Director of European Sales. "And best of all, gamers can now purchase both full games for the price of one, which is incredible value for money."

The "Good Versus Evil Combined Edition" is due out on 29th September at an expected retail price of £14.99 / 24.99. 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.
