City of Heroes-inspired superhero MMORPG Valiance Online surprised everyone when it announced a few weeks back that it’d be opening up its beta for a week in conjunction with the PlayNYC con in August. But now that time has arrived, as the con is expected to begin its online opening ceremonies this evening, and would-be testers are already champing at the bit to get in, including our own writers.
“Hello all the eager people!” Silverhelm Studios tweeted earlier this afternoon. “We’ve got a mild update about the beta going live! Please make sure you’re a part of our Discord for instant updates or watch for announcements here!” The game’s official forums further notes that backers should be receiving their in-game rewards today too.
“Hey there everyone! We know you’re excited for the beta to start rolling out and so are we! We’re working on a few last minute adjustments. […] Today’s focus will be on on the networks stability with the players joining in. Want to make sure players can get in (and stay in) while running around and getting a look at the scenery. More content will be rolled out while the week progresses and will announce when the beta is live on social media, discord, and here in the topic Here. We apologize for the delay and eagerly await your arrival in San Cielo!”
