Valiance Online’s pre-alpha is available for testing

Heroic?

Do you feel a burning desire to get in and try out one of the intended spiritual successors to City of Heroes? Because you can do exactly that right now with Valiance Online. The pre-alpha client is available for downloading and testing with no NDA, no restrictions, and no certainties about when the server may go down for patches and/or maintenance. Still, you can share your experiences freely with the world at large.

The pre-alpha patch notes have a pretty long list of improvements as well; players who’ve tested earlier versions can look forward to improved combat, improved enemy AI, improved power sets, and improved missions. The game is still obviously in an early state, so it’s far from feature-complete, but players can still get a sense of where the game is going by downloading the installer and getting the client running.

In the early days it was 14 (I think). 4 after they changed it to be more accessible.

Pretty much happy w/ DCUO right now. CoH was a fun title, but didn’t really allow you to do anything useful (i.e. fly) until at least lvl 20, which was just beyond dumb.

MagmaFist Cramit ValianceOnline I just wanna be clear, the video I posted above is from March 7, 2015.  So the improvements they are talking about in this update is ontop of what I have posted.  So we will have to check out the current version to see what other improvements have come from almost a year ago when the above video was recorded.

While I backed the project earlier, I’m still wary of entering a beta for a game I plan to play for years. I don’t want to ruin any surprises or that initial experience of discovery. That first experience is being saved for a polished Live game. Remind anyone of a recent article? ;)
Massively, could you possibly do an interview with the Valiance devs? I’m curious as to how well their plan, strategy and development is going as well as wanting to know if any of the previous CoH devs or senior animator, Ron Friedman, are still involved in the project at any level(official or unofficial).
Thanks for anyone doing testing and providing the team feedback

Ok so this really is a pre Alpha if you’re one of the CoH faithful you might want to check it out but the simply curious might want to wait.

Also if you made a login for the website that won’t work for the game you’ll need to create an account through the launcher. They do say this but I though some players might miss it.

Cramit ValianceOnline Wow, flying looks great!!! Loving the cityscape(some low textures on grass and roads right now though) and the music. Models and costumes are looking good too. Keep on improving, Valiance.
