Champions Online, the superhero MMO due out this September, is being developed by Cryptic Studios, the team behind City of Heroes and City of Villains, and the upcoming Star Trek Online. Here, in the second installment of Videogamer's exclusive developer diary series, Bill Roper, Design Director at Cryptic Studios, discusses the Nemesis system in the forthcoming MMO.
"As a hero rises in fame, they attract not only the adulation of those they have saved, but also the attention of more powerful and dangerous villains. All great heroes end up with an arch-enemy whose purpose in life is the downfall, destruction, or humiliation of said hero. And that is what the Nemesis system in Champions Online is all about."
