Valiance Online clarifies alpha and Steam launch plans
Back in October, Valiance Online announced that it was superjumping onward from pre-alpha to alpha and revealed that it'll use a free-to-play model, or rather, continue its free-to-play model into the live game, as it's free-to-test right now. This week, it clarified some of those plans.
"SilverHelm Studios has announced the impending launch of the public Alpha test of Valiance Online," declares the press release -- we'll imagine it's in a booming comicbook voice. "Prior to the actual launch of the Alpha on Steam, a private test will be run for people who have invested in the game as well as random participants chosen from registered users on the website and forums. The game will also be available to download on the website for non-Steam players. Windows, Mac and Linux will all be supported in the Alpha test."
Silverhelm is also touting its recent improvements and plans for the game, including the combat upgrade, third version of the character generator, UI buffs, and in-dev pet classes.
MMORPG gamers will recall that Valiance is one of several superhero-themed MMORPGs founded in the wake of the closure of fan-favorite City of Heroes. Most recently, we've covered some of the new heroes and villains the devs have posted to social media.
