Champions Online™ REVELATION Overview

Vibora Bay was never destined to be like other cities. Some will say it’s the music that sets her apart, some will say it’s the food, or the culture, or the religion steeped in voodoo tradition. The more discerning will say it’s the magic so thick it fills the air. But they’d only be partly right.

Revelation takes us far below Vibora Bay, the sultry southern city, where an ancient magic lies. An angel (Therakiel), exiled from heaven and hell for his refusal to take sides during Lucifer’s first rebellion, has been hiding deep below the city. It is his primeval magic that permeates all of Vibora Bay and has drawn powerful witches, wizards, and sorcerers to the city for centuries. The ultimate resolution of this epic conflict hinges on one man, Robert Caliburn, and whoever controls Caliburn will control the war and triumph.

Revelation is a free expansion pack available to all players in mid-March. Venture into Vibora Bay, the mysterious city on the bayou, and discover all new threats lurking around every corner! Here's what you can expect from Revelation:
  • Brand New Level 37 to 40 Content: Experience the endgame in all new ways, as friends become enemies and the picturesque Vibora Bay falls sway to the half-angel, half-demon Therakiel.
  • Six Bew Meta-Powers: Earn brand new Tier 4 powers.
  • Therakiel's Temple: Group with friends to conquer the most challenging Champions Online Lair yet!
  • New Enemy Groups: Battle a variety of new enemies – including five all new factions- the Sovereign Sons, Trey Kings, New Shadows, Dogz and Nephilim!
  • Over 30 New Perks: Dozens of new ways to achieve in Champions Online.
  • New Costume Pieces: Entirely new costume sets available.
