Secret Identity Feature Planned For Champions Online

Bill Roper, executive producer of upcoming superhero MMO Champions Online, revealed to IncGamers plans to introduce a “secret identity” feature to the game sometime after it launches in July.

Since Champions Online was announced, fans were keen to see if the game would have any form of secret identity mechanic, after all, most superheroes have a not-so-super alter-ego hidden away somewhere. We asked Bill if Cryptic would be adding this as a feature to Champions, and he admitted that it was on the cards:

“We have actually designs, probably in the not too distant future after the game launches, of doing a whole secret identity thing. I’d really like it to have gameplay impact, so for example if I choose an occupation, like if I was a scientist, then I could have a different look for my secret ID but when I was in my secret ID I could get a bonus to my science crafting skill,”

He went on to give further examples, and explained that a secret identity costume slot would have been easy, but Cryptic wanted it to be a proper feature. Find out more about this upcoming title in our full preview of Champions Online, which goes on sale 14 July.
