Valiance Online kicks off its investor alpha today

If you’ve been eagerly awaiting the day when Valiance Online would open for testers, the day has come. The investor alpha is starting today (it was announced yesterday, albeit when things were winding up), but there’s still a reason to watch the archived footage of the game’s most recent developer stream down below. Just skip ahead 30 minutes first, because the archived footage has half an hour of “starting in a bit” as a lead time. No, we don’t know why.

Aside from the announcement at the end which we’ve already spoiled, the stream footage covers powersets (starting at around 52 minutes in) and character creation (around 1:55), so there’s plenty of interesting stuff in there if you’d like to see behind the scenes. You can check it out just below if you’d like to watch, assuming you’re willing to jump past the perhaps oversized prep time.

Or maybe you really like waiting half an hour after pressing “play” before watching the video, we won’t judge you.

Hmmm, the only option for funding is Paypal, which i haven’t used in a decade or so. i have occasionally mulled over reviving my old Paypal account (or creating a new one if it no longer exists) some day, but today is not that day.

Delayed 14hours for last minute changes.

I’m not sure if I love or hate the avatar window moving around and showing real time attacks, but I must say it’s more entrancing watching that while it’s attacking than the character.

Haven’t seen this feature in any MMOs yet, although they sometimes show them blinking their eyes and moving heads, etc.

My personal view on the combat animations are… it actually looks far better than City of Titans by a bunch.

There will be an option to shut off the “moving head”. Thanks for the feedback!

turn’s out it wasn’t your project I backed (cf. below)
But in general I find it impressive when people build up a project like yours. So, good luck and all the best for your future development efforts!

Is this the one I backed ages ago on Kickstarter?

If it was Valiance Online you backed you are still eligible to play in the Investor Alpha. :D

All three major CoH successors have gone to Kickstarter, but only City of Titans was successful. It is due out next year.

iirc mine was successful, so probably it was City of Titans.
Thanks for the info :-)
