Heroes of Steel - Paladin Preview

Need a warrior stand side-by-side with Vraes in the battle line?  Need someone to crush your foes with a massive two-handed hammer?  You need a Paladin!

Fyona the Paladin will be the next character released for Heroes of Steel, and I wanted to share some of her draft artwork!  Hoping to release her and her impressive set of combat talents soon!

Heroes of Steel - Streamlined Gear UI

As the first of a new round of UI enhancements, the next release of Heroes of Steel will include a re-structured gear interface.  It's great, and something I've wanted as a player for a long time.  Luckily, as a dev, I can make it happen!
  1. Allows you to see all of your equipped gear in a single glance!  This does wonders for coordinating bonuses on your characters!
  2. Allows you to unequip any piece of gear in two taps, instead of having to drill into the specific gear slot.
  3. Equipping still requires you to pick the right slot - so there is work to do here but its a major step forward!

Cyber Knights v1.8.50 Released!

The newest release of Cyber Knights marks a major milestone as we move through the V2 Jobs updates.  Every Connector who you can find in a shop who works for the Streets, any gang, criminal organization, or security company is now a V2 Connector!  The last hold outs are the mega-corporations, and they won't last long!

Another big addition is a new type of Connector - the Bondsman - who is specifically interested only in Capture missions.  One of the goals of the V2 jobs system is to allow you to build specialists, and this is another case where we are enabling just that.  Are you a Cybersword who is perfectly built to take down a target and his or her bodyguards?

More Connector types will be on the way with more job types in upcoming updates - including big changes to how escort works, reconnaissance jobs, and jobs based around stealing data, items, and people away from your targets.

Hope you'll join us on Google Play for Free!

v1.8.50 - 3/27/2014
 - New Connector Type: Bondsman Hub (specializes in capture)
 - All Knight Horizon, BraveStar, and Yakuza Connectors are now V2
 - Elite Only: Neural Hardwire I & II - raise AP quickly
 - Red pin placed accurately for taxi maps (thanks @gravling!)
 - Deleting paydata updates UI correctly

As the four heroes gather in the throne room of a fallen Baron, a shadow settles over the eastern Underdeep. Knowing that their true quarry escaped their net, the hunters look to strike again before Lazzon is able to go to ground.  




Heroes of Steel, Episode 2: The Gathering Shadow continues the epic adventure as the four unlikely heroes turn their gazes east. The lands of the Braeys Family and Baron Koda seem hazy and distant in the constant gloom of the Underdeep.

This first release of Episode 2: The Gathering Shadow includes Act 1 - the massive and sprawling lands of the east.  New challenges and dangers arise at every turn as the heroes faces both the mythical, mundane, and political dangerous of the broken world of Steel.

The story expansion is huge and features:

  • 20 new dungeons, packed full of challenging enemies
  • 4 new towns from two major factions
  • 30 new types of monsters as you travel farther and fight harder than you ever have before 
  • Smarter and more varied types of monster intelligence
  • New monster talents including Area of Effect attacks, devastating curses, and stunning amounts of elemental damage.

In Episode 2, the world opens before you - and you are called upon to make choices that will change that world.  Episode 2 brings a new level of branching into Heroes of Steel and forces you to chose from multiple paths, take sides, and fight to hold them.
