"City of Heroes," is (Officially) Back

Back in 2019, it was revealed that an online game thought dead/discontinued had been operating in secret for six years. That was both impressive in an era where almost nothing stays secret online and a bit infuriating for fans of the game who missed it. That game was, "City of Heroes," and through a variety of agreements and manuverings it now is, in fact, playable online without any legal gray areas. Since it first was released 20 years ago, "City of Heroes," has died, been revealed secretly alive, and now has risen like a phoenix for anyone to enjoy in an official capacity. If it were a human celebrity it would make for quite the biopic.

Powered solely by donations and totally free-to-play, "City of Heroes," has defied the odds regarding the majority of online games that end up canceled. It's back, and despite any bumps along the way to its true (legal) return, now we can all enjoy it. That's a win in my book.
