City of Titans had a rough 2018. The Kickstarted City of Heroes spiritual successor was meant to release its “issue 0” alpha by the end of the year, but damage to the game’s primary data repository set the developers back a solid three months. Nevertheless, work continued, particularly on the character creator, combat system, and user interface.
This afternoon, the CoT team posted a quick update on Twitter that says it’s now caught back up to its state prior to the setbacks last fall.
“We have quite a few projects in the works that we hope to be able to tell you about soon, but we’d like to mention one that has come together very well over the last few weeks,” Missing Worlds Media wrote on Twitter. “The server that manages logins and player interactions has been rebuilt from scratch after going offline during our issues back in October. This brings us back up to the level we were at before everything went wrong. With this server working again, we are able to complete the rebuild of our Alpha test server.”
With this server working again, we are able to complete the rebuild of our Alpha test server. Thanks again to Jamie “GeeksGoneBad” Cunningham for his work on this and for somehow finding the time to coordinate the addition of dozens of costuming elements to the Character Creator
