When Riot Games and Activision Blizzard alumni form a new studio, it’s to bring the gaming world a PVE-oriented MOBA with a heavy dose of competition. The Vela Games team invited JV to an online presentation of Evercore Heroes (formerly Project-V), a project started in 2019 designed to satisfy a broad type of gamer. The ideas and the talents are there, and the magic?

Become a hero, just for one… season

When you start a new business, you have the opportunity to ask yourself how to make games for the next 10, 20 or 30 years.”. It is with these words that Travis George, co-founder and CEO of Vela Games presented the vision that his recently formed team has for Evercore Heroes, a project designed to “combine the intransigence of eSports with the energy of positive social dynamics”. It is true that the formulation is well founded, but in fact, what does this studio formed by the former Riot Games, Activision Blizzard and Electronic Arts really want to offer gamers?

Evercore Heroes borrows the team play and skill system of a MOBA and integrates it into a PVE MMO where teams of players challenge each other. Four squads of four players compete on four identical maps and must accomplish various objectives until they find and defeat a final boss. All teams see the participants’ presence on the minimap, while opposing heroes are represented by glows. Evercore Heroes is therefore a PVE-oriented race against time against various enemy squads.. At any time, it is possible to check where other players are to complete a mission through an interface element.

Our goal has always been to make the game that players really want, even if it means thinking outside the box. With EVERCORE Heroes, we’re creating a unique multiplayer experience, combining skill-based cooperative and competitive play in a whole new way. After over two years of great feedback from early tests, we’re thrilled to finally be able to share the game with the world. Travis George, CEO and co-founder of Vela Games

The science and fantasy world of Lumera that users will wander through seems varied, based on the few artworks we’ve seen., with snow-capped mountains (Kru’s territory), lush jungles (Moxy) or even futuristic cities. A season system has already been planned to offer new environments and new heroes after the official release. The base roster we were shown included attackers (Shade, Zari, Cynder, Blink), a tank (Fyn), and healers (Beko, Lotus, Remy). As you can imagine, as in any good MOBA worth its salt, each hero has their own skills (four in total) and strengths. Some are more mobile, others can perform long-range attacks, while others have powers designed for crowd control. As for the customization of these protagonists, talent trees are included to allow builds adapted to the player’s style and the challenges of the missions. Fragments that offer combat bonuses can be purchased in exchange for some gold coins (virtual currency that can be collected in-game).

A race against time… and clocks

Keyboard and mouse in hand, the game looks like a classic MOBA whose games last between 20 and 30 minutes. Different monsters must be destroyed, allowing you to earn XP points, gold, and items. The most important thing in Evercore Heroes is not to clear the map of its creatures, but to fulfill objectives, which has the effect of charging the Evercore in Luum (a magical energy) until causing the encounter with the final boss. Once the guardian has been summoned, a fight consisting of different phases begins. This is when the teams will have to use their talents to come out better than the others.

At various points in the progression, the boss can send waves of creatures to destroy the Evercore, a structure that is essential to protect. These waves are described as being more or less powerful depending on the actions of the other opposing teams. During the excerpt shown, the lucky little ones managed to capture a point on the map, causing an “elite” Yeti to appear on other squads’ worlds. You will definitely understand Although the Vela Games software is 100% PVE, it takes the competition between players to a high level.. According to the development study, the project has been revised and corrected several times since 2019 so that it becomes “Excellent”, instead of just good. If you fancy seeing what Vela Games has to offer, you can try out a pre-alpha available from October 13-16 by registering at evercoreheroes.com.
