Pandora's Box is the second Signature Story Arc released in game. Both Heroes and Villains are being supercharged with new uncontrollable powers. Heroes team up with the remnants of the Freedom Phalanx to discover the secret menace behind the chaos, while Villains lay the groundwork for a new organization to rival the power of Arachnos.

Each part of Pandora's Box, called an "episode," is available for purchase on the Paragon Market for 400 Paragon Points; each episode must be purchased separately. VIP Players also have Signature Story Arcs available to play for free as long as they keep a subscription; dropping to premium requires purchase to continue playing.
