The March Community Update for Ship of Heroes takes a look at a community event, and more.

That free community event is now live and is running for about two weeks. Do note, this is not a beta and you will come across bugs as noted by the team,

“This is just a chance to run across the latest dev map and see a well-made game that’s under construction. Most traditional MMOs don’t open developer maps to the public because they aren’t polished or complete, but we want to do something nice for everyone stuck at home, and we’ve made a lot of progress since the CCT Beta back in November of 2019.”

Travel powers will be available for this event. But most of all, the team is encouraging you to “make cool characters.” New costumes have also been added. Powersets and powers are also available as they’re being tested by the devs. Perhaps most exciting, combat has been enabled,

“Once you are inside Apotheosis City, be aware that there are live enemies on the map. Not everywhere, but especially around the Science Park, the Warehouse District and the Hazard Zone. If they see you, they will attack you! Fortunately, you can be safely respawned on the north side of the map.”

A day/night cycle is active as well, in addition to expanded mouse functionality.
