Alignment is the way the game distinguishes between hero, villain, and everything in between. It will be introduced by the Going Rogue expansion. It has been described as an involved process, not a "switch" that can be "flipped". Alignment Tip missions will somehow factor into this process of players falling or redeeming themselves.
Heroes and villains that do not fall or redeem themselves have access only to their original sides and their alignment's Praetorian content. They also get a badge that is revoked if they ever fall or are redeemed.
Falling and Redeeming
- A hero becomes a vigilante before becoming a villain.
- A villain becomes a rogue before becoming a hero.
- Access to both Paragon City and Rogue Isles zones, including badges
A character may start at Level 1 in Praetoria. During the course of its career, they will choose to assist The Resistance or the Loyalists. Characters that assist the Resistance become heroes, while characters that assist the Loyalists become villains.
