The Ship of Heroes team has taken to the game's forum in response to a query from a poster wondering when the next "invite test" for the Character Creator Beta would be held. Though the hope is for the July 4th weekend, it may be too much of a stretch for that, but should come sometime shortly after.

Some of what is in the current development pipeline:
- more realism in facial models
- adjustments to superspeed animations & FX
- a new melee powerset
Finally, we're actually recording segments for a video about the level-up process, choosing power new powers, applying augment slots, and then installing augments. We have that working and I saw some short (and cool) combat scenes recorded in support of that.
