City of Heroes: The Deadly Apocalypse is upon us!

The Deadly Apocalypse is upon us!

Brace yourself for the new apocalypse as our annual Halloween Event returns to City of Heroes®! Legions of Zombies, Werewolves, Jack-o-Lanterns, and other foul denizens are preparing to descend upon Paragon City™ and the Rogue Isles™. This year they're bringing even more powerful allies! The new apocalypse is deadlier than ever as mysterious monstrosities are joining forces with the Eidolons, Shivans, and others. Paragon City and the Rogue Isles could be in terrible peril, and only the greatest Heroes and Villains can turn back the tide.

  • Starts: Tuesday, October 20th, 2009 at 8:59 a.m. Pacific Time (11:59 a.m. Eastern Time)
  • Ends: Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009 at 11:59 p.m. PacificTime (2:59 a.m. Eastern Time).

Deadly Apocalypse

As if our Heroes and Villains didn't have enough foul-smelling fiends with rotting flesh to deal with during a zombie apocalypse, this year Heroes and Villains have to come up with new strategies to tackle a new terror. When Haunted Sigils appear, destroy them quickly and prepare for wave after wave of relentless foes. Only after all the foes have been defeated will you be rewarded with a ghoulish surprise. It's a trick and treat!

Badges, Temporary Costumes, and Other Rewards

The greater the challenge, the greater the reward! This year our Heroes and Villains receive new trick or treat prizes. Everyone who completes the various stages of the Deadly Apocalypse will receive a badge, and all of last year's goodies will be back for players who missed them.

Be sure to visit Ravenwing Cabbal's Annah in Croatoa or Granny Beldam in Nerva Archipelago to learn more about the 2009 Halloween Event activities.

But before you launch yourself into the action, there are a couple of things we need to make you aware of:

  • You should enable the Events Channel on your Chat channel Tab to see in which zone the Deadly Apocalypse (announced as 'Supernatural activity detected in Zone X') or the Zombie Invasion is occurring.
  • If the Halloween Event kicks off in a Zone that has multiple instances, it is only occurring in ONE zone (for example, if there are two instances of Atlas Park, check both Atlas Park and Atlas Park 2) .

Happy trick or treating!
