News from another MMO on a Neverwinter site? Are we branching out? Not quite, but we thought sharing this might also be of interest for Neverwinter fans as it’s Cryptic Studios news, sort of. You may or may not know that our devs currently maintain two active MMOs in Neverwinter and Star Trek Online, and actively progress on a third in Magic the Gathering.
A fourth, Champions Online, is still online, but in so-called maintenance mode since a few years. Meaning there’s no more content coming. At least not until last week, when Cryptic suddenly added the new Alert “Save the Earth”. Alerts can be compared to Neverwinter’s skirmishes. They’re quick brawls that usually come with unique rewards.
So is Champions back? Probably not, as this was a one-time addition to celebrate the game becoming the longest running superhero MMO of all time. Although the reviews are mixed, it’s still great to see Cryptic giving love to their oldest title and might also indicate that the studio is going strong.
