Ship of Heroes takes you on a tour of a short instance

Time to get your eerie City of Heroes vibe on with Ship of Heroes’ latest video. If you still have regular flashbacks of fighting through office spaces and high-tech warehouses from the former MMO, then you might be right at home here.

During the short video tour, a team of five developers jumps into a sci-fi-themed instance to fight cyborgs and repair a small machine. It’s not very long at all, but you can see how the group uses a variety of powers to take down foes and quickly clear out rooms. The devs also report that one of their number was playing from Europe without any noticeable lag.

Check it out after the break and let us know in the comments how you think Ship of Heroes is shaping up so far!

Looking forward to this game, but judging by the video a lot more work is needed.

They seem to have gottenso far ahead of City of Titans in such a short period of time that it makes me wonder if they’re using mostly stock assets from their engine of choice (is it Unreal 4?).

Cot has always been under the magnefying glass of the coh successor movement and was the “first”-good or bad that may be. I think these guys did a good thing if they kept it under wraps a while before presenting playable videos.

I don’t know if it’s that they’ve gotten so far ahead in such a short period of time or it’s that they’ve been working on this for awhile now and only just recently started to talk about it.

Either way, stock assets or not, what they’ve got looks a lot like City of Heroes with better graphics. If they have a lot of the things that made City of Heroes a great game then I’ll be very happy.

Wow! I’m really looking forward to this game now.
