City of Heroes Holds Extended Double XP Event in Conjunction with Reactivation Weekend

The team at Paragon Studios is celebrating the recent launch of Issue 16: Power Spectrum with a free Reactivation and Double XP weekend. Beginning Thursday, October 8, all inactive accounts in good standing may log into City of Heroes and enjoy all that Powers Customization and Mission Architect have to offer, free of charge! Additionally, all participating Hero and Villain characters will receive double the experience points (XP), Influence, and Infamy for their accomplishments in game. Take advantage of this opportunity to level up your favorite Heroes and Villains twice as quickly as normal!

With the massive success of the user-generated content system, Mission Architect, which has resulted in more than 50,000 story arcs to play, as well as the upcoming Going Rogue expansion, now is a great time to play City of Heroes and see how it not only set the bar in character customization but offers the most customizable gameplay experience over any MMO of its kind.
