The Ship of Heroes summer Beta event is going on this weekend with dozens of missions ready for playtesting. If you’re a donor and want to check it out, here’s what you need to know.

The Beta opens to the general public on Saturday, August 14.  If you want to participate, you can register here.  The event runs from August 14 through August 29. If you’re a donor, you have early access with your event having started on August 7.

If you’re thinking of registering, you might want to check out this combat video below. The video shows off a team of four players rolling through mission six of the Iris mission arc.  This is the final big boss battle mission.

Throughout the video, temporary power-ups continuously drop onto the players.  You’ll be able buy more of these power-ups, called infusions, at respawn points.  There are several respawn points inside the mission map, so no more running from the hospital to the mission door in this game. 

The thing to note here is Ship of Heroes allows teams of up to ten players.  For those who like group play and want to see somewhat larger groups, this may be a nice change of pace. This beta was announced a few weeks ago. If you missed our initial coverage of that, you can catch up here.
