Jetpacks for Heroes and Villains

As well as festive missions, more.

NCsoft is planning a range of Christmas/holiday-season/other activities to see us through to the New Year/January/acceptable-variant in City of Heroes and City of Villains.

Operation Holiday Cheer and Operation Scrooge will introduce festive-themed missions, with special prizes available on both sides, but clearly the headliner is the addition of a free jetpack for all between now and January 2nd.

We're also told to expect a mysterious character called the Gamester to play pranks on both sides during the period.

Also in the meantime, NCsoft Europe's community staff will lead four separate assaults on each of the European servers to heat things up, which is presumably a good thing.

You can find more details on festive goings-on on the City of Heroes and City of Villains websites.
