The Nighthawk update is now live for Champions Online, adding a vehicle system to the game.
From Perfect World Entertainment
Super-heroism has wings and jet engines in the Nighthawk update for Champions Online, including the first taste of the superhero, action MMORPG's brand new vehicle system. Framed by a corporate super-villain, the vigilante hero Nighthawk must clear his name. The call has been made for players to band together, taking the fight to the skies with Hawkwing jetfighters.
These Hawkwing fighters represent the prototype for the vehicle system that will be coming soon to Champions Online, and players can fly them in outdoor maps for fast-moving combat and powerful gunnery. In addition, players can learn new stealth and gadget-based powers, including a devastating Strafing Run.
Check your engines and strap in for takeoff, because finding the real villain will need the help of true champions!
