One of the best things about City of Heroes is dressing up your character and flying around the world looking cool. Adding more things to make that fun and interesting is never a bad thing.

From the press release:

    NCsoft®, the world’s premier publisher and developer of Massively Multiplayer Online games (MMOs), and Paragon Studios®, home of the world’s most popular super-powered hero MMO, City of Heroes®, today announced that the City of Heroes Steampunk Pack will be available on 1st June, 2011 .

    After having just celebrated its 7th anniversary, City of Heroes now offers characters the ability to travel the lands of Praetoria, Paragon City and the Rogue Isles with a fashionable Victorian touch. Whether strutting your stuff in new leather thigh-high boots and a matching bustier or showcasing your finely waxed mustache before fighting your arch nemesis with your patented pistols, the newest City of Heroes accessory pack has everything you need to become a part of the Victorian-noir style that is steampunk.
