Cryptic Studios Announces Champions Online

Hot on the heels of the confirmation of the untimely death of the Marvel MMO, Cryptic is trying again with Champions Online... I'll be keeping an eye on it.

Cryptic Studios also announced today that it has acquired the Champions intellectual property (IP) from Hero Games. First published in 1981, the Champions role-playing game is one of the first RPGs to forgo the traditional dice-rolling system of character generation in favor of a point-based system. Cryptic Studios has licensed back to Hero Games the right to produce Champions RPG books, and the sixth edition of HERO System and Champions, set to release in 2009, will include rules on how to recreate Champions Online characters and scenarios.
