Ship of Heroes takes you on a tour of its warehouse district

    
13

City of Heroes veterans no doubt have strong memories of their early superhero careers being spent jumping and dashing through numerous warehouses that seemed to attract the criminal element. With one of the game’s spiritual successors, the industrial warehouse setting is making a comeback, whether you want it or not.

Ship of Heroes took players on a tour of its in-development Warehouse District. During the 40-minute video, the devs narrated many of the details and possibilities present in this zone, including giant crane elevators, walkways spanning buildings, and very ordinary-looking HVAC units (which makes total sense, as this is all on board a giant spaceship).

While the tour didn’t go inside any of the buildings, the team did confirm that interior locations are being built and will host several missions in the upcoming MMO. Check out the tour after the break and don’t miss out on our exclusive glimpse into this studio’s philosophy on the superhero genre.

I won’t be impressed until the interiors of the warehouses are a random jumble of corridors and rooms that in no way match the outside of the building.

Ah memories.

Next thing you’ll tell me escort NPC’s will disappear going from floor to floor on the elevator.

And said elevators will only go between 1 floor max. Elevators that go up the whole way would be madness.

Ha! That memory made me laugh out loud. And remember completing the mission to discover you’re missing one NPC or target or whatever? Send the speedster to go figure out where that missing thing was! (“come on, everyone. 3rd floor then north”)

This looks to be coming along great. For developing assets for games, I would recommend them actually finishing the mesh before they texture it.

This has given me ‘Teh Feelz’

I like to explore and wander around just like Streetsweeper is doing. Badge hunting and all.

Keep at it Casey and Co!

There is a precedent for cleanliness-related superheroics.

Every self-respecting city where there’s superheros and supervillains needs an Abandoned Warehouse District.
