New assets from Champions Online have arrived, the superhero romp being created by Cryptic Studios and Atari, and currently in the Open Beta stage. The developer diary World of Champions shows us the environments where we will fight for the good, describes some of the powers and how the writers create the stories for the superheroes and villains.

The second video is an exciting new trailer that describes some of the possibilities in the game, from character creation (including our very own nemesis) to the choice of travel powers.

Champions Online will be in stores on September 1st.
