With the latest free update of the City of Heroes MMO entitled Issue 13: Power and Responsibility, NCsoft has added new features and new content to the game, and has used the occasion to announce Beta testing of its Mac friendly version of the game. If NCsoft manages to bring City of Heroes to the Mac OS, then it will join other massively multiplayer online (MMO) titles such as EVE Online and World of Warcraft.

“Players will soon be able to join the battle of good versus evil in the most popular comic book MMO on both the PC and Mac platforms… and in the same game world. Given Mac’s fame as a platform for creative people and City of Heroes’ unprecedented character customization options, I think City of Heroes is a perfect fit for the Mac gaming community,” said Executive Producer of City of Heroes with NCsoft West, Brian Clayton a while back.


If you would like to put the Mac Beta version of City of Heroes through its paces, all you have to do is sign up here. The thing is that an exact release date has yet to be provided, the only thing we know so far is that the software is due to drop imminently close (some time this week).

If you are an Apple fan and have been running Mac OS X for a while, then chances are that you never played City of Heroes, so here is a basic presentation. The game type is MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online), meaning that you will join a large online community of players. What you have to do in this virtual world is pretty simple – set up a character according to your own moral compass (hero or villain) and start fighting. There are so many customization options that no two heroes/villains look the same, have the same powers or wear the same costume.
