Valiance Online is a living world superhero massively multiplayer online game in which player choices and actions are paramount.

Set at the end of the 21st Century in the fictional city of San Cielo, players take on the roles of heroes and villains who battle using superhuman powers and advanced technology.

Imagine a world full of limitless scientific advancements, immense magical power, and the unfettered potential of the human body and mind. In this world, you choose. You can be the one to step up and save the day; the hero who strives to protect the city and the people who inhabit it.

Or you can be the one to cut a swath of destruction through the populace; the villain who rules the world with an iron fist.

Or perhaps you’re something in between?
