First Champions Online update detailed

New powers, zombie PvP, late October.

Cryptic has outlined the first major update to its superhero MMO Champions Online: Blood Moon, a Halloween-themed patch due in late October.

Blood Moon introduces a new suite of superpowers to try out. The Celestial powerset features the healing and buffing powers of the Seraphim and the offensive attacks of the Nephilim.

The update will also herald the rise of the undead villain Takofanes. Werewolf packs, undead heroes and zombies will appear across Champions' world, and there will be a Zombie Apocalypse player-versus-player event in the Canadian Wilderness zone. If you die fighting the zombies, you'll return as one of them.

Champions Online launched yesterday for PC in North America, and hits European shops on Friday. Watch out for more on Eurogamer MMO very soon.
