Ship of Heroes hints at ‘significant’ login test to come

    
10

Hope your brightly colored spandex is back from the dry cleaners, because you’re going to need them sooner rather than later. The team at Ship of Heroes hinted at a test that sounds like it is going to involve a lot more players than have seen the game to date. The event itself, which will accept sign-ups, is just going to be a “milling around” situation around the game’s signature arch. Still, for fans that will be one giant leap forward from sitting and waiting for the next superhero MMO to take shape.

“We’re working steadily toward a login test, which is a very modest name for a pretty significant event,” the team posted on the forums. “If it works out well, we will have demonstrated that we can put the MMO into our MMORPG.”

Some other projects that the team is tackling include a day/night cycle, playing around with the new PopcornFX toolkit, improving the codebase, and polishing Arch Park. Ship of Heroes’ development was slowed by unspecified “personnel issues” in the recent past, but the team said that it is recovering and even adding new members to the team.

The over all vibe I get from this game is its a weird concept ( a space ship with superheroes on it ) and the title really is odd too .

But I guess what it comes down to is gameplay . It might be ok

this game will be dead on arrival. the name alone is a disaster.

this stream of consciousness will be ridiculed. even the name alone reads shallow.

Awesome! I’ll be trying to get in on that one. You can’t do much more than that in Paragon chat, and that project has been ongoing for 6 years now!

Is the “Ship of Heroes” headed to a “Planet of Villains” so they have something to do?

I expect theirs won’t be the only ship out in space. Alien invasions it is, then? ;)

The Nagdelians are the biggest problem currently, as they have medium-range teleport abilities that let them get through the shields. Without superheroes to defend the massive generation ship, it would be taken over by Nagdelians pretty quickly. The good thing about these guys is that they manage to get the local heroes and villains to work together, even if just for the duration of the attacks.

The ship is a virtual world and there’s some things already creeping around…

This is a big ship traveling aimlessly through the void of space…so lots of apples gone bad in the meantime, so to speak. o.O

ship of villains has been discussed (much post launch). but there will be villain groups and enemies from within and without. alien and human ships and alien worlds are also a factor.
