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. :steamhappy:

NCSoft isn't a developer. They buy IP's and shut them down.
Michael May 22, 2017 @ 2:53pm 
Probably because the Steam community is mostly a bunch of whiney b- that's simply their choice and their right as developers. :-)

We've also posted an article explaining updates to our donation rewards! https://valiance.shogn.net/news/10-news/30-reward-tier-updates-2

Added some recent alpha screenshots and videos to this page but we'll soon be setting up our official Steam page and will post the link here when it is ready. Until then, the best place for the latest information is our website http://valianceonline.com as well as our various social media pages. Thanks!

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.)

Wish I could get excited about any of them to be honest. CoT got me excited, but it's been what? 2 years with little progress, I'm glad I didn't invest. I'll be shocked if it EVER sees a real Alpha much less Beta. VO, another game that seems to be treading water. Ship of Heroes has me cautiously optimistic. They have set out a very ambitious timeline and thus far have met all of those goals without a kickstarter or fan funding (which is coming in a few weeks).

CoH is still the king. When it was shut down it left a huge hole in my mmo enjoyment that hasn't been filled despite trying time and time again.
evryPixelcounts Mar 7, 2017 @ 10:44pm 
I miss COH (city of heroes) plz make a good game that can take up its mantle.
Silverhelm Studios  [author] Feb 14, 2017 @ 11:18am 
Actually, the graphics and combat are in Alpha. Not Beta and not release. They are not meant to be at the level of a finished game or representative of the final intended game. We are still testing and developing the game and have much more work to do. We hope you will participate in the process and give us your feedback positive or negative as we do. Thanks!
Michael Feb 13, 2017 @ 7:20pm 
The graphics and combat are intentional. They're trying to make it close to City of Heroes.

That being said, DCU is a steaming pile of garbage, so enjoy.
Silverhelm Studios  [author] Feb 9, 2017 @ 3:59pm 
Here are some videos of the developers testing the Alpha client!

I'm sensing someone invested in CoT's harassing other developers, that's what I'm sensing. Is City of Titans making such great progress despite a reasonable crowdfunded bankroll ? If anything Ship Of Heroes seems to be making better progress.
Michael Jan 12, 2017 @ 12:01pm 
I'm still waiting for the part where you spent money. Are you one of the backers? If you aren't, then you aren't really entitled to much - opinions or otherwise.
Michael Dec 19, 2016 @ 4:49pm 
Entitlement alert.

Are you shelling out the cash to buy CoH back from NC$oft? No?
Are you making your own superhero MMORPG? No? Hmm...
Are you offering any constructive criticism to the production of this? ....nope.

Simmer down.
Silverhelm Studios  [author] Dec 7, 2016 @ 1:56pm 
We're still organizing and will add more over time, but lots of art and screenshots can be found in our virtual press kit...

How do we get an invite to this private alpha test?
Silverhelm Studios  [author] Dec 5, 2016 @ 4:45pm 
We've been busy with alpha development but we released a bunch of new screenshots today...

The big news is that in the coming weeks, we will be inviting people to a private alpha test before the official launch...

More pics on our forums and watch for more information on testing soon!

Is this game dead? Please don't let down the CoX group again :(
Mike Oct 28, 2016 @ 5:02pm 
@Totally Professional Glad to hear, I'll keep my eyes open. Looking forward to your game.
Totally Professional Oct 28, 2016 @ 11:12am 
@Mike, we had a pre-alpha release available to the public some time ago, but that had to come down in order to make the changes we've been working on for the last few months. We value the opinions of the community very highly (I mean, we played CoH ourselves, we ARE the community), so we want our open-alpha release to come to bear as soon as possible so we can get a public opinion. I can't give specific dates that haven't already been announced, but now is an excellent time to be excited ;)

Keep in touch with our website and you'll be among the first to know when you can hop in!
Mike Oct 27, 2016 @ 10:01pm 
@TotallyProfessional OK, glad to hear it. Is there a testable version out? I see things and the launcher on your site does not work.
Michael Oct 27, 2016 @ 12:45pm 
I've been following both this and Titans with fanatical levels of hope ever since NCSoft broke into everyone's home, stole the game from people's underwear drawer, and destroyed all existing copies. I sincerely wish you folks the best of luck!
Totally Professional Oct 27, 2016 @ 12:42pm 
I promise you it isn't dead, @Mike and anyone else wondering the same. I can't be entirely sure how much you can hear from me, contractually, but check the Valiance website if you haven't yet done so. Some recent-ish announcements have been made in the form of blogposts over there regarding a lot of the questions people have been asking. Donating will only help fuel the fire while you're there. It comes with some in-game swag, too.
We aren't a huge team, but we're dedicated to making something wonderful. Valiance will have another publically playable build up as shortly as we can get it. Get pumped ;)

Have a happy Halloween!
Mike Oct 27, 2016 @ 10:58am 
What is the status of this game? Is it sill in the works, or is it dead? Forums seem lacking.

i'm just wondering when we will get to play it

I'm excited for how the game will turn out!
fantasygmr Jun 11, 2016 @ 11:06pm 
Get a solid alpha that shows potential - aka see some variety like COH or Champions Online and you go my money - love super hero themed mmos!
Michael Jun 1, 2016 @ 12:47pm 
Huzzah! I can't wait to see the new patch. Keep up the great work!
Silverhelm Studios  [author] Jun 1, 2016 @ 10:53am 
Posted to announcements...

Just catching up on a few announcements made on social media...

* We are getting ready to release the alpha patch and move to Steam. There will be a week (or more) of downtime in the next few weeks to prep.

* The alpha patch will merge game and website logins, and allow investors to access their rewards in-game. Watch for a blog post with details!

* FYI, the game will not be Steam only. It will always be available through our website and other means.

Stay tuned for more updates!
KingsGambit May 26, 2016 @ 3:59pm 
I've been waiting for this and it's fellow "spiritual successors" since NC shut down CoV, one of the best MMOs I've played. Looking forward to playing it :-) Good luck to the devs, keep up the great work, we're waiting patiently :steamhappy:
Michael Apr 20, 2016 @ 5:57pm 
When can we get a progress report on this project? The website doesn't seem to have been updated since January, and it was just to inform people that the address was new. I've been following both this and Titans very closely, and only Titans seems to have any form of regular communication.

From a gameplay standpoint, I was really looking forward to Valiance more than Titans, simply because of Valiance using the original City of Heroes engine. This would be an instant-buy for me, if it was ever finished.

So my uncle worked on this game a bunch...
Silverhelm Studios  [author] Feb 29, 2016 @ 9:08am 
@SwagSurf The game is in open pre-alpha testing and playable. Download link and information at http://valianceonline.com/play
Michael Jan 14, 2016 @ 7:08am 
Personally, I LOVE the animations! You can tell it's using the exact same packages as City of Heroes, and honestly speaking, THAT'S the game I truely want to play. If they keep VO as close to CoH as humanly (and legally) possible, then I would be one happy nerd.
Mandrake Jan 13, 2016 @ 9:04pm 
Probably has to do with the fact that VO is developing their client, server, and game simultaneously - which is why we can actually *play* the game and not just watch little clips of things. Pre-Alpha and even Alpha is more about framework, systems integration, etc. Getting everything working together like missions, mobs, AI, interiors, instancing, models, layers, and so forth. 'Smothness' will come in spurts here and there between major changes. Upgrading the mechanics / bone structure for the new models, etc. is one reason why things don't seem as 'smooth' as before. It is still in development. At least we get to play, bug test, report, and participate during the process of the creation of the new world! :)
