Typo! In the "About this game" section: "Show of"... should be "Show off"

Just trying to help!

Congratz on the Steam launch and I've wishlisted the game. I'm looking forward to the LIVE launch and continual improvement of the game so we finally get a next-generation super hero MMO. I can't wait to see what is possible in UE4/5 that was not possible in previous superhero games.

This is exciting. Thank you for going on Steam and wishlisting us. For your question, the answer is a definite "yes"! We would love it if you could make some suggestions in this thread. We are looking for ideas.  

Thank you for the reply. I joined CoH two months after launch and missed out on being one of the very first/original players to sign up. I played for 8 years consistently, right up to the bitter end. If I remember correctly, those original players had a unique badge and a few unique costume pieces, but I can't remember exactly what they were, and if there were other unique in-game items. I always felt like I was an original member even though I just barely missed out on the initial launch.
SoH looks amazing and this time I really want to be one of the first to start on day one. Maybe some of the other old school CoH gamers will see this post and add their thoughts to what you guys can do for the first generation of subscribers. Either way, I am ecstatic you are (finally) getting close to launch. It's been way too long since most of us put on our capes and enjoyed an outstanding superhero game.

We are planning to upgrade to the latest version of UE 5. The upgrade will occur after we launch the game because we do not want to inflict another launch delay on our community. One of the big benefits of UE5 over UE4 is its virtual texturing capability. We have already implemented the virtual texturing capability from Unreal 5 in our current build. What that means is that last year, we converted every texture in the game to VT. By implementing VT, we have put down a marker for our community that says "we definitely intend to upgrade".  

oh wow.. it will be on UE 5.2
This Will be The Greatest Game of The Decade

Just created my Steam account and added you to my wish list. Question: Will there be any early special promotions when purchasing the game, that marks us as the first players to kick this wonderful game off? And I don't mean lower prices, I was thinking something like CoH did for the very first players who started from day one. Unique costume pieces, badges, etc. Just curious, thanks.

Congrats!

Crazy to think you're launching. It's incredibly difficult to start an ambitious project like this in your spare time and bring it to readiness. I followed the game heavily back in the day but have only checked on it quarterly for a few years now.

I definitely NEVER expected to see it on Steam, but it makes a lot of sense after reading the announcement. Which wasn't even getting into the vast amount of eyes it will put your game in front of. An order of magnitude more than you could have ever hoped for. (132 million active monthly, per the announcement.)
Of course with Steam you risk the negative reviews but that won't matter for a hardcore subscriber-type fan base. You're looking for a core, not to please everyone.

For what it's worth I was the first donor way back on May 12, 2017!

Thank you so much for your support! You are right that the exposure of Steam is unparalleled. This does not mean that every Steam user can have an interest in our game. People have different tastes. The only thing that matters is that all those who would enjoy Ship of Heroes find out about it and get the opportunity to play if they wish. This is a very exciting time.

I am so excited to announce our Steam store page is live as of today! In the future, this is where new players will go to buy and download the game. The Steam store page features a quick video trailer and a selection of pictures taken from Ship of Heroes gameplay. Some of these pictures show environments that no one outside of the dev team has ever seen before. For example, there is a picture of the New California Colony raid and another one from the Nagdellian Mothership raid.

For a big game like Ship of Heroes, most dev teams publish their Steam store page 6 to 12 months prior to launch of the game. We are still targeting game launch by November 2023, but we have a lot to do and we are hoping that date does not slip. With the store page published, the next big thing we need to resolve is when and how we can have another free and public Beta event, so supporters can play the game and give us feedback.

Please visit our store page on Steam and wishlist us. When you wishlist us, there is no cost and no commitment on your part. But two things happen. First we gain the ability to notify your Steam account when Ship of Heroes actually launches. Secondly, the amount of promotion Steam gives us is influenced by the number of players who have us on their wish list. Knowing how many players intend to play our game also gives us insights into the proper size of servers for launch. We want our players to have a positive experience and not have to wait in a queue.

If you would like to help us, there is one more thing you can do besides adding us to your wishlist. Please follow Ship of Heroes as well as wishlist it. If you follow us, we gain the ability to invite you to any free event on Steam that we might hold.

Today is a red letter day. We just moved one step closer to launching Ship of Heroes.
