What Is Valiance Online?

Imagine a world full of limitless scientific advancements, immense magical power, and the unfettered potential of the human body and mind.

In this world, you choose. You can be the one to step up and save the day; the hero who strives to protect the city and the people who inhabit it.

Or you can be the one to cut a swath of destruction through the populace; the villain who rules the world with an iron fist.

Or perhaps you’re something in between?

Valiance Online is a “living world” superhero massively multiplayer online game in which player choices and actions are paramount. Set at the end of the 21st Century in the fictional city of San Cielo, players take on the roles of heroes and villains who battle using superhuman powers and advanced technology.

The Story

In 2049, the villainous superhuman organization known as Leviathan first revealed itself to the world. As their armies marched forth, countless cities were ravaged and countries torn asunder. Never before had the world witnessed the horrific might wrought by super-powered beings. Fortunately there were those willing to oppose the terror, and assist the armies of the world in this battle. Heroes arose to fight evil, to protect their people, their cities, their world. Leviathan was driven back and the world began to rebuild in a new era of peace.

On the west coast of the United States, the city of San Cielo was devastated by the double hammer blows of war and earthquake. Its citizens could easily have abandoned the ravaged city to seek out new homes, but instead they chose to rebuild, to see their city once again reach to the sky and serve as a beacon of hope.

Now, at the end of the Twenty First Century, San Cielo faces new challenges, her citizens caught in the immortal struggle between morality and villainy. On one side, the forces of Valor, led by the legendary Paramount, fight to protect the city from rapidly strengthening gangs, rising crime and other unknown evil forces. Meanwhile, the mysterious Magistor directs a resurgent Leviathan, intent on reshaping the world into his vision.

Looming above it all is The Trinity, a group of megacorporations that have introduced world-altering scientific and technological breakthroughs. Thanks to their efforts, ordinary people can now be born with, or acquire, superhuman powers, or use advanced technology to achieve the same effects. As humanity’s abilities grow, The Trinity reaps massive profits.

The Plan

Currently we have a working pre-alpha version of Valiance up and running and are beginning large scale server stress tests. It’s been a labor of love for the team over the past year, but with your help it could be so much more! Right now we have a group of passionate gamers building Valiance Online, all of whom have volunteered their time and creative energies in the belief that together we can create a new superhero MMORPG for everyone to enjoy.

Some of the features planned for Valiance Online include:
  • An evolving game world tied to character choices
  • An open world environment with continuous no-loading between zones
  • Travel powers including fan favorites like swinging, acrobatics and flash stepping
  • Over 25 zones planned, ranging from futuristic city, island fortress, Atlantis, subterranean maze, and all the way into space
  • A choice through action system for character alignment
  • Player run stores and a decentralized market system
  • Semi-Freeform character build options
  • Powers customization options
  • A flexible and customizable UI
  • Multitudes of costume choices
  • Player created content

Meh, looks decent. Forgot about this project. Although I was an investor, I stopped keeping up with this game after I was removed from the forums, after giving money...... the others are more interesting to me, City of Titans and Ship of Heroes. Not really interested in this anymore.

Goodluck tho.

Sorry for the delay in responding. It has been pretty busy lately and we'll be putting up a "catch up" post with links to some of the major announcements/discussions from the past month or so including the recent livestreams. We'll be releasing the Alpha on it's own but it will be available on Steam shortly afterwards.

NCSoft isn't a developer. They buy IP's and shut them down.

"This has me frothing at the mouth in rage. Utterly. I didn't think it was possible for me to hate this company more than I already did, but there it is.

I just have no words. No words at all. Nope...none.

(Okay, I do have words, but Steam shows them all as hearts.)"

Irony........
