Renaissance Heroes is an online multiplayer first-person shooter set in the re-imagined world of the 16th century Renaissance Europe.

Renaissance Heroes, previously known as "DaVinci Online," combines classic multiplayer action with unparalleled visual realism powered by the Unreal Engine 3 technology to deliver the fun of fast-action shooters to a new generation of gamers. Renaissance Heroes invites players of all skill levels to experience the adrenaline-pumping action coupled with easy accessibility in a completely free to play environment later this year.

"We're excited to be collaborating with Bridea on Renaissance Heroes," said Dirk Metzger, VP of Publishing at (US), Inc. "The team understands what it takes to create an awesome online multiplayer action game, and Renaissance Heroes represents the kind of unique, quality free-to-play games ChangYou is committed to publishing in the North American market."

"Renaissance Heroes is all about old school, arena-styled FPS gameplay," said Michael Powers, Senior Producer at (US), Inc. "Whether you're a long-time FPS player or just looking for a great, fun way to blow off steam, this game offers all the intense action of the classic shooters."

Leonardo da Vinci, famed inventor and artist, was at the forefront of a new scientific revolution of scholars and scientists. This revolution put them at odds with the Church, pushing da Vinci into action. In this struggle against the Church, da Vinci merged science with alchemy and created the Machine, a weapon of great power and science. Rumors of the device soon spread and attracted the wild imaginations of those who aspired for power, money and fame. This Machine, however, was also highly unstable, exploding and killing da Vinci in its first test. With the Machine destroyed and the blueprints scattered, the race to reassemble these plans and change the fate of the Renaissance has begun.
