Huzzah! The first video of footage from Cryptic's Champions Online has emerged. The cel-shaded style is looking great, if you can manage to focus on anything without giving up your methylphenidate. There's a few hints as to the sorts of locations to expect (volcanos, green forests) and some of the power effects, which look glowy and important.
It might take a wee while to load, so we've put it below the jump to stop the front page grinding to a halt. Or you might want to head straight to the source and download it from Cryptic's servers.
(A special imaginary prize to the person who can explain why the controls are chopping in half.)
