- According to the Champions Online website, Cryptic has announced its first expansion/patch/update/thingy. Called Revelation, it will include the previously mentioned Vibora Bay zone. And most interesting of all? The price for the expansion is zero.
- Bill Roper states in today's State of the Game post that winning the trust of the community is their number one priorty and I think releasing this content free of charge is a big step in the right direction. Cryptic has a lot of good will to make up. But now that Star Trek Online has shipped, they have a chance to avoid the distraction of that launch and realize they have a second game to support.
- Their plans for improving the community are pretty deep. I'm no Tweety, so I can't say for sure if these are the best steps to take. But any steps at this point are a good start. If anything, though, this might have been enough to remind me why I wanted a lifetime subscription to the game in the first place.
