About the Game
Name: World of Heroes (Place holder name until further development)
Type: Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing
Technology: HeroEngine / 3DS Max / Blender / Photoshop
HeroEngine is the gaming engine behind some of the largest MMO games, for example Rift and Star Wars Old Republic, there is also rumours, and a heavily edited version of the engine is being used for Elder scrolls Online, though this is only a rumour for now.
HeroEngine allows our development team to work synchronously together on the game at the same time, our server is cloud based allowing individuals from each time zone to login and carry out work while the others are catching some sleep.
All terrain editing tools and game functionality is handled by HeroEngine, meaning it requires limited amount of 3rd party software.
We do expect you to have access to your own software for your role too, though 3DS Max and Maya are expensive packages to come by, with substantial knowledge you should be able to use free packages to carry out the job to the same level.
World of Heroes is a Massively Multiplayer Online World. Based around the great classic civilisations of the day, a user will be able to step foot into the shoes / sandals of people who created the basis of modern civilisation.
From rubble to bustling cities, we plan to use real world data and history to recreate a beautiful yet savage world.
Love to explore? Good there will be plenty of that. Hundreds of kilometres worth of terrain from plains to rolling hills and mountains, coastal areas and island archipelagos.
Behind each myth and legend there is a hero, fight mythical legends taken from history and brought to life each with their own unique abilities.
Worldwide in-game auction functionality – Trading is taken to a new level with our Merchant class, a good carrier of materials, with a 3 person mount but lacking the speed of the other classes out for the ripe pickings of these slower units. Work together to defend your precious cargo.
Take part in real world events, Pompeii did happen, people did survive, take part in the saving of civilians for achievements and wealth.
PVP – The whole world is open combat, there will be rival gangs, legions and armies. Take to the water in large naval battles or roam the open plains and invade player owned / created areas’
We want this to be your world and we will listen to the community, major updates are planned for every 3 months and critical updates will be applied when needed.
In-game store – There will be an in-game store for micro transactions, buy clothes, cosmetic items and pets to style your character and property with. You can also buy new subscription time direct from this store!
And before people think this will be biased…
NO these will not affect the game play giving the player base with a budget, a good fighting chance.
Weather and Day and Night cycles will affect the way in which you play the game. Roaming NPC mobs will be more aggressive during the night and creatures will take you for easy picking.
