City of Heroes goes steampunk

The City of Heroes game is now giving you the options to play in a 19th century steampunk setting. Ah, the old steam-powered jetpack ploy. Clever, professor, clever.

But will it be enough to bring me back to City of Heroes?

Only time will tell…


I am an author of various fantasy, science fiction, crime and other genre books from Gollancz, Hachette and HarperCollins. Some day I hope to grow up and be an astronaut. Exploring Mars would be nice.

    It should be noted that there is no “new 1900s setting”. That’s Mercy Island. I’m sure steampunk will look far less snappy in, say, Atlas Park.
