The Coming Spy MMO Glut

If you've been holding your breath since 2000 for the sci-fi MMORPG "Citizen Zero," you can stop waiting!

It's been canceled.

Instead, Australian developer Micro Forté is working on an espionage-themed MMO.

Sony Online Entertainment announced their spy MMO, codenamed "Vista," last year SOE runs the "EverQuest" franchise, "Vanguard" and "Star Wars Galaxies" -- making their success rate 1 for 3.

A James Bond MMO is certainly an interesting idea. But just as "City of Heroes" quite literally features a city with thousands of superheroes walking around, isn't there something silly about a city with thousands of spies hanging out in it?

Then again, maybe not. Set it in Cold War Berlin.

"City of Heroes" Issue #9: "Breakthrough"

The upcoming patch for "City of Heroes" and "City of Villains" introduces Inventions, aka crafting. Which means you can finally play that gadgeteer character you always dreamed aboout.

And after you've created unique armor, weapons and gadgets, what can you do with them? Sell them at the new Auction House, of course!

When will the patch be made available? NCsoft isn't saying. We'll keep you posted.
