Starfall Arrives in One Day!




Villagers & Heroes is thrilled to bring you our exciting, massive, new update, STARFALL , on Wednesday, September 20th!


What can you expect? A completely revamped loot system! All new talent trees and feats! New high level content and quests, with four brand new zones! New character appearances! A level cap raise to 90! Terrifying new Elder Bosses! And, much, much, more!

Visit our special Starfall Website to learn all about the extensive improvements, advanced features, and exciting new changes made to V&H: http://www.thestararrives.com/


Items and Gear have received an electrifying overhaul. Whether you prefer battling deadly foes in the wild, or crafting your own unique gear, our revamped loot system now provides players with amazingly new powerful gear!


Crafting has been made more complex and robust than ever before, with more stat boosts to items, the addition of runes (feats on items which can be moved between the items), and a whole new tiered system of rarities!

The four character classes have been entirely refurbished, and are more dynamic than ever! Each class now has 12 talents grouped into 3 specializations per class. Unlock powerful Ultimates for your character, as you fully level up your talents -- these game changing effects and brand new combat feats will revolutionize your style of play, and provide players with an endless array of compelling choices for their characters.


Quest lovers can look forward to a whole new adventurous storyline: ‘The Journey to the Crux!’ With Starfall comes the first four new high level zones in a series of seven! Players will be tasked with unraveling mysteries, traversing beautiful, but deadly new regions, all in an effort to reach that perilous land known as The Crux, where a dark new madness has lately descended. Heroes are needed!

In addition to all of the above new changes, Starfall also brings with it a whole slew of other improvements: A new world map, redesigned tooltips, vast new UI improvements, new hairstyle customization options, new outfits and mounts, and many bug fixes.

Furthermore, on launch day, all players will receive a FREE mount, free sockets, a free outfit, and a free makeover kit!

Players, get ready for a truly extraordinary new build, and one of the most exciting chapters in V&H history.

“There are 10 different gathering professions: mining, fishing, bug lore, plant lore, smithing, cooking, tailoring, woodcrafting, gardening and ranching. The coolest part is that one character can become an expert at all of them. So Villagers and Heroes is a class-based, sandbox-crafter's paradise with nicely interactive housing.”

About This Game

Step into a magical land unlike any other!

Villagers and Heroes is a free-to-play MMO game in which players experience the thrill of battling unique monsters, the satisfaction of crafting powerful weapons and gear, and the pleasure of building lasting friendships in a friendly community.

Gnomish Augmentation = Sandbox Gameplay.

This unique feature is at the heart of the deep yet elegantly simple player choice system in Villagers & Heroes. The weapons and armor that a player equips not only grant a versatile assortment of heroic feats and spells, but also a large array of proficiencies and augmented abilities. The process of Gnogmenting gives the players the ability to mix, match, swap, replace, customize and design gear exactly how they want! Combine ancient elder gear with remarkable weaponry dropped from the monsters of the world. Or craft your own gear using any or all of the 10 gathering and crafting skills available. Gnogmenting is a completely free-form, sandbox system that is unmatched by any other game in its depth, and lets players test every tactic and indulge every creative whim.

Bounty Runs!

Bounties are powerful adversaries and monsters that roam every corner of the world. When a player defeats a bounty monster, they earn a large reward, regardless of the size of their party! Solo the beasties by yourself, or rampage across the countryside with a group of friends. Bounty rewards are instantaneous and do not require activation. This feature encourages teamwork and strategy.

Live in a Real Home in a Real Village.

You are the architect, the farmer, and the rancher. With a wide range of building styles to choose from, players can design and decorate their own houses, as well as choose which crops to plant in their garden, or select the type of animals they'd most like to raise. But players needn't go at it alone! Help your village grow from a tiny hamlet to a thriving metropolis by aiding your neighbors with community projects which will ultimately benefit every member of the village.
