What we know so far

August 2020

Invasion Tests are under way.
The final invasion test of August 2020 takes place on 29th. Sign up using the big blue button on the SoH home page if you'd like to take part.

November 2019

The CCT beta has been completed.
Combat beta/Invasion test is now scheduled for Q1 2020.
The game is still expected to launch towards the end of 2020.

July 2019

From this post, we're looking at tentative targets as follows:
CCT Beta - late August/Early September 2019
Combat Beta/Invasion Test - late 2019
Game Beta - early 2020
Game Launch - when ready (probably middle to late 2020)

Other things in progress in July 2019:
Male and Female hair models are being reviewed.
Some animations are being reviewed/polished.
NVCloth is  being assessed to see if it's a better tool for cape animations.
More cars and civilians are being added to the city map.

June 2019

Talking about badges. Heroic Games want to know what people think about badges, what sorts of achievements should be available, etc.

April 2019

Consultant talks about the UI and related issues.

Feb 2019

Planning Game Mechanics for Missions. How Heroic Games are writing their mission code and how it affects the players.

April 2018

 Working on the day/night cycle, more effects to be added and a new healing powerset to be added.

May 2018

Login test, one powerset to be revised and one added. A new mission map to be added and some lighting changes.

June 2018

More costume testing, a look at controller and debuff powers and preparations for raid testing.

Looking Further Out

In Q3 the dev team wants to enable players to test some kind of raid situation.  Testing raids in Alpha is unheard up for MMOs.


Beta Test

 The plan, currently, is for Ship of Heroes to enter some form of  beta testing phase towards the end of 2018.


Although we have not officially been given a release date, we're anticipating (hoping!) that the game will be released as a full fledged MMO some time towards the end of 2019.

Here's the latest 'roadmap' for 2018
