If you cared about the lore in City of Heroes, you were probably pretty attached to certain villain groups, right? Who doesn’t remember Circle of Thorns fondly? And what about the Carnies?!
Upcoming indie superhero MMORPG Ship of Heroes is all about that action and has some new details out this week on its own customized villain groups thanks to its latest stream.
“This is the first look at details of expanded villain group costumes showing four distinct villain groups in Ship of Heroes,” Heroic Games’ Justin “sensible” Roberti explains. “The Villain Groups shown are: The Nagdellians, ruthless alien invaders bent on domination of the Justice; The Prometheans, a secret sect of Cyborg/Dark Magic Users that wish to create a super race of cybernetically-enhanced humans to rule the Justice; the Yekus Mercenary Clan, a widespread group of soldiers for hire that serve as muscle for the highest bidder; and The Red Sigil, a group of powerful magic users committed to revolutionary overthrow of the government of the Justice.”
You’ll also notice that a female toon is on display, complete with “traditional body suit and some cool accoutrements.” Says Roberti,
“A new, body-conscious female hero costume has been introduced for heroes that wish to enter combat in non-restrictive and alluring style. This costume is specific to female characters and includes requests made in the Character Creator Alpha including thigh-high boots and elbow length gloves.”
We’ve got the new screenshots, plus the recent stream and a villain video down below.
