City of Heroes Issue 15 released

5th Column missions, Architect improvements.

NCsoft has updated its long-running superhero MMO City of Heroes with Issue 15: Anniversary, so named to celebrate the game's five years in operation.

Issue 15 adds a suite of ten new missions featuring the return on The 5th Column, the game's most popular villain group. There are also some improvements made the the Mission Architect content creation system that gave the game a boost when it was launched a few months back. Read Log's impressions for more on Architect.

There are a handful of new character customisations - faces, costume sets and costume change animations - in the new Issue to boot.

A relatively slender update, then, but it's not even three months since Architect was launched and there have been 200,000 player-created missions since then, so we'll let them off.
