Hey, it’s been a bit since we’ve checked in on Ship of Heroes, but the team is back in action with a brand-new video, focused specifically on the Street Fighting powerset.
“Street Fighting is fast and energetic, and focused primarily on single target combat,” Heroic Games says. “An unusual combination of dramatic knockbacks and subtle power effects make this powerset quite different than the other unarmed melee powerset that SoH revealed recently, which was called Martial Arts. Street Fighting emphasizes punches and upper body attacks, as compared to Martial Arts, which is heavy on kicks. The powerset also has an unusual debuff power which fits thematically with the down and dirty style of fighting – called Throw Dust. Throw Dust is an interrupt power that also has accuracy and damage debuff effects, and you can see in the video that this power can have multiple copies stacked at the same time onto one enemy.”
We’re tucking the video down below; Heroic says this is just the current state of the powerset and that yes it will indeed be more polished as development goes on. Beta is still slated for this year, with soft launch still on for the end of this year.
