Ship of Heroes Shows Off Superspeed

Ship of Heroes has released their latest video, this one is showing off Superspeed. It is one of three travel powers that will be available in the game at launch, and this is the first time we’ve seen it in action. For the record, the other two are teleportation which we’ve not seen yet and flight which has been used by developers for the last year.

Superspeed in Ship of Heroes is faster than flight. But, of course, you have to go around various obstacles which in the end makes you about even with flight in terms of getting to your destination.

Players will be able to customize how superspeed looks with five different FX options at the character’s feet. The options are fire, electric sparks, ice, darkness, and of course nothing at all.

When you enter combat superspeed will actually deactivate and you won’t be able to reactivate it until combat has completed. This means you won’t be able to run back and forth while killing a boss.

The good news is that superspeed uses very little energy so you could keep running forever.

The devs are also taking some time to work on non-combat animations at the request of the community. In particular, they show off walking and sitting. Walking is totally different for the three body types. Female characters have a feminine walk, male characters have a masculine walk.

You can see everything mentioned so far, superspeed in action, the different FX options, even sitting and walking in the new video which I’ve included below.
