Ship of Heroes is aiming to be a new kind of superhero MMORPG. One were you can truly build your own character from the ground up, and even put simple twists on powers to make your character even more special. The game has been in development for awhile, and today, the team revealed the third official powerset for the game: Lightning Blast. Not only have they detailed this new powerset, but they’ve also released a video for it that you can see below.
As noted above, this is the third powerset the game has revealed, but make no mistake, there are much more to come. In fact, there is going to be eight of them revealed before the end of the year. Why that matters is that Ship Of Heroes allows you to combine powers in primary and secondary ways to help make your character not only stronger but unique. So, the sky’s literally the limit when it comes to what you can do with your powers in the game.
Interestingly enough, the team made a specific character to show off the Lightning Blast powerset: Dr. Strikewell, she is who you will see in the video below.
Another interesting thing is that the Lightning Blast powerset won’t just be an offensive tool. In fact, it’ll act defensive, it can help create buffs as well as inflict debuffs, and in the case of some characters like Dr. Strikewell, it’ll heal them via special techniques. So as you can see, not all powers are exactly what you think they may be.
Now, you might be thinking that these effects feel a little subpar, the team knows that and assures that these are only WIP effects. In fact, they’ve actually expanded their team with some SFX artist to ensure that the effects look better by the time the game is ready for showing to players in the playing sense.
