New Character Faces for Heroes
Before, all preset faces were displayed with the same default settings that did not highlight the unique potential of each face. Now the CCT includes 114 distinct head presets with hair, eyes, eyebrows, and lipstick or facial hair, so each one is a unique and interesting person.

These preset looks can easily be altered with a few simple changes such as hair style, hair color, skin color, eye color, eyebrows, or facial hair.
Variations on the same preset face. So many possibilities!
“It has been fun to see the variety of beautiful looks that can be created with the CCT. Most surprising is how all the prominent features of the head, hair, eyes, eyebrows, skin color, can be switched to almost anything on any head and deliver other beautiful but distinct looks.”

Five of many possible variations from a single preset face
To create a completely new look, you can harness the power of morphs from any preset appearance radically altering it.
“No… No… Definitely not… That’s good, but still not quite right… Ooh, I like that one!”
For those who do not enjoy manually perfecting the look of their character, creating a character with randomizers is the answer. Randomizers were first revealed in October 2019. Our randomizers now take presets into account to generate better random combinations. Spend exactly as much time as you want on creating a cool hero!
Of course, the head is not the only thing players can customize. The height, silhouette and body types can also be changed through a variety of powerful morphs. A costume composed of up to seven pieces that can be mixed and matched will complete your unique look. Each piece can be recolored with multiple colors.
We’ve always had a strong character creation tool; now we’re polishing it to be launch-ready. In the next few months, you can expect upgrades to other aspects of the game, as well as a Steam store page. We’re eager to show off some of the new mission maps, world locations, NPCs, and the deep, engaging story that makes Ship of Heroes so exciting to explore. Stay tuned!
“Heroes often wear bold colors, and not just for style. When enemies can’t look away, that gives civilians more time to flee.” – history textbook
- In Ship of Heroes, there is no connection at all between the look or appearance of your character and their powers, archetype, or stats. You are in control of the story of your character. Want to make a hulking, armored healer, or a tiny Tanker? You can, and people will admire your creativity.
- Looks and costume files can be saved and people will admire your creativity.
- A character can have an entire wardrobe of costumes and switch between them.
- We have nearly doubled the number of costume pieces recently, including access to more civilian clothes.
- You can write your character story to be viewed by other players in-game.
- You can change your character’s look, costume, and story at any point without losing progress or resources.
In Ship of Heroes, a Devastator is a long range damage dealer with additional capabilities. Flexible and powerful, a Devastator is well suited to solo playing. But it does take some tactical expertise to play it well.
2023 was a great year for Ship of Heroes. We’re making dramatic progress towards launching SoH in 2024. Of course, we’ve wanted to launch SoH in several previous years, but we are now far closer to this goal than ever before. For us the launch of the game is a new beginning, not an end, since after launch we will shift into high gear to produce ever more content for our players.
One key goal is to deliver smoother, more enjoyable combat. Many of the combat and power changes described here have not been previously revealed.
