SuperHero MMO, Valiance Online Heading to Steam Soon

blueturtle13blueturtle13 Valve Corporation Posts: 9,271Member Legendary

Silverhelm Studios snuck in on Twitter a pretty great update on the progression of their superhero MMORPG, Valiance Online! It seems that after getting greenlit last year and going through a slow but steady development, Valiance Online on Steam is finally about to happen.

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.


7:37 AM - 31 May 2016



The announcement doesn’t yet feature an exact date for this move, however the news sounds quite positive as this release seems to be closer than ever.


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.

    I'll probably be buying into this one (and the other superhero MMORPGs in development), if for no other reason than a chance to flex my creative muscles and recreate my old CoH ideas as well as come up with a few new ones!

    We should start an MMORPG.com supergroup to group test these new superhero entries as they become available!

    At the very least, we'll all have folks to argue with in game chat about how awesome/awful the game is in real-time WHILE we play the awesome/awful game! ;)

    I'll get on that as soon as I finish creating an MMORPG where people play my steam backlog for me :)

    I've been in the alpha, but it is obviously PRE-alpha.  It is an interesting concept, and I will give it a try.  I am anticipating City of Titans and (especially) Heroes & Villains more, but it looks like VO will be in a playable state first.  So I guess I will be giving it a try soon!

    The world is going to the dogs, which is just how I planned it!

    I didn't even really know about the game, but it seems pretty cool.

    It's good news to see that this is almost hitting Steam here soon. Been looking for another superhero MMO other than DCUO/Champions. As much of a Marvel fan that I am I just couldn't get behind Marvel Heroes.. As said above it is in pre-alpha still.

    This looks pretty amazing, I was  a big CoV/CoH/City of Rogues player and loved the mastermind archetype it was the best class in any MMO to date so I will definitely be buying a founder pack on steam for this.
  • PhryPhry OxfordshirePosts: 8,321Member Epic
    If it manages to capture the whole Superhero theme that COH/COV did, then that would be great, will definitely be checking back on this game once its finished. B)

    Looks interesting.  I never got a chance to play CoH, but I did play DCUO and enjoyed it.  So, I'm sure i'll give this game a go.  Once it launches, I don't do KS and early access.

    This game has had several kickstarters and it has a couple of investors.  It also has at least one dev from CoH on the team.  I am patiently waiting to see this game in a truly playable state, with combat and such.  I've only gotten the alpha to play properly when there were no bad guys to fight, and the HUD was hardly working.  I would really like to see what this game has to offer...

    "May" is not the right word.

    On the official site the link for donation is up but the test servers for backers is offline, the last post on their news was half year ago.

    The team has still been posting on the forums. They made a couple of posts in the last few days, but nothing of any real significance. 

    Release date is "when it's done". Same for Alpha launch.
    Will update soon as the team feels we're ready.
    This is an indie project with limited staff and funding so we're not giving firm dates for now.
    Because, Murphy and his damn law. B
    Though to be fair, some of the top studios in the industry (Blizzard, id, Epic, etc.) say the same thing so we're in good company!

    and

    When we have news we will post it.

    They still post regular just not on the news section. Go to the forums and read the dev posts.

    Thoughts anyone?

    needs some work in my honest opinion.
  • WarlyxWarlyx UnknowPosts: 2,182Member Rare
    its pre-alpha so yeah it needs tons of work

    I would love to remake my necro/dark mastermind ;D.  I really miss City of Heroes ;(.

    Very cool. Their pledges also don't seem outrageous. No 5k or 10k dollar tiers to get super exclusive shit or the like. I just might do it at some point...

    @Beyorn gawd, yes. I miss my MMs so much too! And they seem to have several fun takes on the class! :D

    My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)

    Feel free to send me a message if you want a guest pass to try Black Desert Online as well!
