City of Heroes for Mac

NCsoft has launched an open beta of its City of Heroes and City of Villains for the Mac. The game allows players to design and create either a superhero or villain, to explore the two available environments, Paragon City and Rogue Isles. Users can do battle with a variety of giant monsters, creatures, and other players inside player-versus-player zones. In villain mayhem missions, users can destroy any objects around them. Each server provides twelve possible character slots.

For the Mac special edition two in-game items were added, a mission teleporter power, capable of instantly transporting the character to the mission, and a valkyrie costume set.

City of Heroes can be downloaedd from the City of Heroes Mac-beta website.

    is it free?

    also does it link up with the main game play in the already ongoing PC area?
