What to install Edit

If you already playing the game, either through a trial account, or having already been playing City of Heroes/Villains, you do not need to actually install anything on your computer. You already have an up to date game client and just need to upgrade your account with the new serial code.

If you have not been playing, or need to reinstall the game, then you only need to install one version of the game, preferably the newest. A newer version of the game will reduce the amount of download time needed to patch the game up to it's current level.

List of versions, from newest to oldest"

  1. Good Vs. Evil
  2. City of Villains
  3. City of Heroes
  4. Game client only
