I looked all over the place and saw no City of Heroes/Villains thread, so I figured I'd take advantage of the fact that the game is going Free to play and start one myself!
You can download the game: Here
What do non-paying customers get? Is it worth becoming a VIP? Side-by-side comparison: Here
My badass Hero, Alternate Costume Hero & Villain characters:
I'm not sure if they are segregating free players to a single server or not. I know that there will be a separate VIP server, though. If you like, feel free to jump onto the Victory server when you download the game.
I highly recommend giving City of Heroes: Freedom a shot, I've never heard a disparaging word, even from FORMER subscribers, it's now free, it's more Super Hero than anything Marvel or DC could put out(trust me, I've played them all) if only to try, what I consider to be the best character creation tool in existence. It's that damned good! How good? Well...
