Atari, Inc., one of the world's most recognized videogame publishers, and Cryptic Studios™, creators of the acclaimed City of Heroes and City of Villains are giving comic book fans the power they’ve been craving with Champions Online for PC. Based on the award winning Champions setting from the HERO System of pen & paper role playing games and powered by the groundbreaking Cryptic Engine Champions Online taps into the rich universe of heroes and villains with unparalleled intrigue and adventure.

Cryptic Studios, already a leading developer of massively multiplayer online role playing games (MMORPGs), has taken the genre to new heights with Champions Online’s fast paced, "real time" action combat, character customization tools, and supreme nemesis system. The story of Champions Online is constantly changing, continually evolving. Villains are defeated. Heroes rise and fall. Cities transform. Your actions may decide the future!

The First True Action MMO
  • Hi-Octane Excitement: Champions Online delivers furious, fast-paced encounters previously reserved for action and fighting games. No more boring auto attacks and lengthy recharge times. Champions Online combat is instantaneous — and electrifying!
  • Brains required: Every enemy and super-powered threat in Champions Online has its own unique abilities and combat specialties. Use your head — or wind up dead!
  • Bring friends, make friends: The Champions Online universe will be jam-packed with thousands of heroes, facing thousands of threats. Join up with other heroes, create your own superteam, and prepare to take on the ultimate threats!


Be the Hero You Want To Be
  • Your powers, on your terms: There are a multitude of astonishing powers to choose from in Champions Online, and its flexible character creation system gives you total control over your hero's abilities. You can even pick the appearance of your powers. Do you want purple force fields? Green fire blasts? Jet black claws? In Champions Online, you decide!
  • Total customization, at your fingertips: Choose from thousands of different costume pieces, colors and body types to create your character's one-of-a-kind costume and look.
  • Keep your enemies close: Every hero must have an archenemy. In Champions Online, you design your character's supreme adversary, choosing a name, powers and costume for a super powered foe to bedevil your hero throughout his or her career.
  • Bigger and better: Vanquish evil, and your successes will be rewarded with costume pieces to enhance your powers and abilities. Then customize the appearance of those rewards to your vision of your hero's look and abilities!


Vast Universe
  • Endless exploration: The battle against evil in Champions Online rages across the world. No other MMOG offers players the chance to explore such diverse realms — from the shining skyscrapers of Millennium City and the frozen wastes of Canada to the the hidden underwater city of Lemuria.
  • Evil most foul: Battle supervillains, aliens, giant monsters and secret, sinister organizations. Doctor Destroyer is launching new plans to conquer the world. VIPER lurks in the shadows, seeking chances to strike at humanity. The ancient Lemurians are plotting a return to power. Can you stop these heinous threats to humanity?
