By neoryan - Last guide update: 1 month ago - Patch.
Ashes of Creation is an upcoming MMORPG game with awesome features like crafting, dungeons, professions, and more! The game is currently in Alpha 1 under NDA. This guide will follow the game development and new information will be added.
As of today, Ashes of Creation Alpha 1 is planned to be released during fall 2020. The full game release date is not known yet.
Order of game releases:
- Alpha 1 (starting fall 2020)
- Alpha 2
- Beta 1
- Beta 2
Alpha 1 release
The alpha 1 release will allow us to test the core systems and mechanics of the MMORPG. However, it's not sure yet if the castles are going to be implemented for the alpha 1.
To enter alpha 1 you should have bought a pack from the Kick Starter project. The packs are not available anymore because they already hit the 10K testers limit for the alpha, however, since it's not a Kick Starter exclusive, they may reopen the sales if they can stress test more than the 10K. If the pack is available again in the future, it will be with a different name but at the same price as the first one (count 400$).
What to expect in the Alpha 1?
It's one of the first releases of the game, the players will test the core features. It's really important for Intrepid Studio because they will monitor and see if the backend scales correctly and if the features are good enough. Massives changes can still occur after the first alpha.
Because it's still in development, players may experience bugs and/or lack of content. However, that step is really important because of the players' feedback that they will be used by the developers to improve the game in a good direction.
