Ashes of Creation Apocalypse horde mode is an Ashes of Creation Apocalypse testing mode where 50 players defend a city against waves of incoming NPCs and player controlled monsters.[1][2][3]

  • Each wave is more difficult than the last.[3]
  • Between waves, players collect experience, money and weapons to take back to their hold to defend against the next wave.[4]
  • Monster coins enable players to join the game as part of the horde.[3]

Horde mode will include adaptive AI boss mechanics.[2] Rewards are obtained dependent on progress against these NPCs.[5]

Horde mode will absolutely include boss mechanics, so some of the ideas behind that is going to have a wave mode of a variety of NPCs will likely include some achievable cosmetics as well in that mode depending on how far you can get and those cosmetics will include pets of the NPCs that you face, so like a little miniature version of the NPC's and we'll update those as well, that you'll have in the MMO.[5]Steven Sharif

Horde mode is specifically for testing.[5]

It's a way that we thought it would be kind of fun to implement AI mechanics that we're looking to implement. Testing the you know the blackboard for the AI. Being able to have variable types of NPCs that have roles whether it be like a sniper, ranged, melee, boss, heroic you know kind of different AI focuses for those monsters during interesting situations.[5]Steven Sharif

  • South East Asian (Singapore).[27]

For this play test, no matter where you download and play from, you will be able to queue up and play with your friends from around the world.[27]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse classes

Six classes will be present in Ashes of Creation Apocalypse castle sieges and Ashes of Creation Apocalypse horde mode.[28]

These classes relate to the trinity of classes: Tank, DPS and Support.[28][29]

  • Skills/abilities are not tied specifically to weapons in castle siege mode.[30]
    • It was previously stated that weapon skills are applied to augment a class' base skills.[31]
  • Base class skills may be able to be selected from a host of available skills for that class based on a player's progression within that season.[31][32]

We had a little bit of an idea that we're going to explore with regards to each of the classes having a range of skills and abilities that players can customize that skill kit based on their progression within a season, let's say; and that progression can be gained from any of the modes and it would grant you the ability to kind of customize that skill kit for the before the siege mode or the horde mode. But that's something that might come at a later date.[32]Steven Sharif

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse classes only apply to Ashes of Creation Apocalypse castle sieges and Ashes of Creation Apocalypse horde mode.[33]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse combat

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse is based on action combat.[2][11][1]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse combat targeting

Action combat in Ashes of Creation Apocalypse utilizes a targeting reticle.[36]

  • A hot key can be used to toggle reticle mode on and off.[36]
  • Left mouse click is used for basic weapon attacks.[37]
  • Right mouse click is used as a "focus" button. It can also be used to activate root motion attacks for melee.[37]
  • Combat targeting uses hitbox registration in three separate regions: Upper body, lower body and head.[38]
  • Certain weapons and skills have ADS (Aim Down Sights) functionality.[39][40]

There will be aim down sights. You may have seen it that you can aim down sights on weapons; and there will be scopes on like crossbows and stuff that - arcane scopes - that you can use.[39]Steven Sharif

Some spells do have ADS. There's a long-range meteor blast that can be used from one of the spell books; and that has an arcane zoom in. It lets you zoom into a target.[40]Steven Sharif

Alpha-1 will test hybrid action/tab combat.[2][41]

Time-to-kill

The Ashes of Creation MMORPG will have a time-to-kill (TTK) of around 30 seconds to a minute.[42]

In the MMORPG we really don't want to see any one-shots. The time-to-kill needs to be strategic and tactical.[44]Steven Sharif

Headshot mechanics

There are no headshot mechanics in the Ashes of Creation MMORPG.[45][46][47]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse group sizes

Voortgang in Ashes of Creation Apocalypse

Het eerste hoofdstuk van Apocalypse is The Exodus, ofwel De Uittocht. Het speelt in het begin van de val en maakt een begin voor de volgende hoofdstukken.[55]

Je zult een avontuurlijk pad hebben, dit pad zal wekelijkse en dagelijkse quests bevatten die men kan aangaan. De modi Castle Siege, Horde en Battle Royale zullen deze quests bevatten. Bij het voltooien van een quest zul je ervaringspunten krijgen. Momenteel heb je 50 levels, wat samenhangt met het maximumlevel van Ashes of Creation. In de vijftig levels van het avontuurlijk pad zul je bepaalde assets krijgen, zoals wapenskins. Het geweldige van deze progressie in Apocalypse is dat je alles deelt tussen Apocalypse en Ashes of Creation. Alles dat je ontgrendeld in Apocalypse zal te gebruiken zijn in de MMORPG, unieke skins zijn hierin hetzelfde: een skin waar jij toegang tot hebt omdat je ons geholpen hebt met het testen van Apocalypse en het voorbereiden van de Alphas en Betas van Ashes of Creation[57]Steven Sharif

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse adventure paths

There are adventure paths (also known as Compendiums) in Ashes of Creation Apocalypse (Battle royale, Castle sieges, Horde mode).[54][57]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse cosmetics

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse cosmetic rewards

All of the skins attained in Ashes of Creation Apocalypse will be usable in the Ashes of Creation MMORPG.[63]

Progression and experience tracking for participation in Ashes of Creation Apocalypse testing will entitle players to earn unique cosmetic rewards. These earned rewards will carry over in player's accounts to live launch of the MMORPG.[10][64]

One of the ways we want to give back to the Community in participating in this testing is allowing for progress, quests, achievements rewards to be gained in Apocalypse... You will have rewards and quests and achievements that you and your participation and your performance in that game, whether it be the Castle Siege, the Horde Mode or the Battle Royale will earn you cosmetics. There will be costumes. There will be mounts to earn. There will be housing and furniture. There will be emotes. There will be weapon variants. A lot of these are what we have in production for our project Ashes of Creation, we apply some variants and skins for and make them only available through participating in helping us test these different game modes. And they will carry over to your account on the MMORPG.[10]Steven Sharif

The account used for Apocalypse is the same account used for the MMORPG. Unique skins earned in Apocalypse will be added to the MMORPG as rewards for helping to prepare for the Alpha and Beta stages of Ashes of Creation.[57]

  • Cosmetic skins are only be able to be applied to things that have already been earned, crafted or found within the Ashes of Creation MMORPG.[66]
  • Skins earned in Apocalypse will be available to apply at certain tiers, levels and/or access points within the MMORPG.[66]

So it's not that you'll be able to equip necessarily an item at level one. These are all cosmetic skins. Again we are not about the pay-to-win or pay-to-convenience life. What we want to do instead is as you earn, craft, or find equipment in the MMORPG, these skins that you've earned in Apocalypse will be available at certain tiers, levels and/or access points. So for example, we have different grades of mounts right. We have the base one land mounts. We have the the Royal mounts. We have the flying mounts if you're a mayor or King or Queen. We have legendary mounts. These classes of mounts will have available skins associated with those particular classes... If you have the Ramstider skin that you've earned from Apocalypse, you'll be able to apply that to your first land mount, which will probably be earned within the first five levels you'll earn a land mount. However if you have let's say for example the Gryphon, which will be a glideable mount. I'm sorry what's the name of the what's the name of the night one. The midnight- is the midnight bird or something like? The Nighthunter Gryphon. I think that's it. If you have that skin you'll only be able to apply that skin to a Royal mount so you'll still have to earn these things. Remember our position is that of: You need to earn these things in Ashes first. They're not purchasable or earned outside in Apocalypse and you're granted that immediately. These are skins that you apply to the things you earn in Ashes.[66]Steven Sharif

These cosmetics reflect the lore of Ashes of Creation Apocalypse, which is set before the fall.[64]

One thing that we announced to our alpha one backers that I know they love clarity on is that we'll also be including progression and experience tracking for participation and testing that will entitle them to some unique cosmetics as well that reflect on the lore of this setting, which is before the fall. So you'll be able to acquire some armors that reflect some of the ancient cultures of Verra that you will earn and hold for live launch.[64]Steven Sharif

It would be like your ancestors kept these curios for you.[64]Jeffrey Bard

Examples of some Kickstarter rewards will be included in Ashes of Creation Apocalypse.[67]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse signup gift

A cosmetic sign-up gift will be implemented during Ashes of Creation Apocalypse.[68]

As we prepare for the Alpha One Phase 1 deployment, we will be implementing the cosmetic gift for all regions upon sign up, and to all currently registered accounts.[68]Steven Sharif

Weapon and armor skills

Weapons and Armor are tied to skills in Ashes of Creation Apocalypse.[70]

  • Swapping between weapons will allow players to access the different skills on their hotbar.[70]
  • Certain armor pieces have utility and defensive skills, such as like Camouflage, Polymorph and Battlefield wall.[70]
  • Weapons are tied to one specific skill in early testing, but this may change.[71]

Weapons will have skills associated with them and they'll will rest on a hot bar and you can swap between the weapons on the hot bar and that'll allow you to access the different skills. Additionally the breastplate, the leggings: Those also have skills associated with them those are more utility and defensive abilities, such as like camouflage, polymorph, battlefield wall; that kind of stuff. Those are on the armor pieces and then they are associated with right now the VC hotkeys for their abilities.[70]Steven Sharif

Right now weapons are tied to one specific skill; and you know that's just again because we're so early in alpha 1; but well probably be changing that as we continue to iterate and test.[70]Steven Sharif

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse weapons

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse weapons each have an associated ability. Each weapon has three different tiers.[52] Ranged weapons are currently hitscan based, with the exception of Nightfall, which is projectile-based. Melee weapons are currently cone hitscan based.[74]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse active blocking

The Paladin's Might shield in Ashes of Creation Apocalypse had its own hit box with hit points (HP). It can actively block projectiles.[116]

  • The developers have not yet decided on whether active blocking will be part of the MMO. They are currently leaning toward using more traditional buff-oriented universal damage mitigation but are also considering interaction between action-based blocking and a passive block stat from the waterfall stat system.[117]

In APOC when we had the active sheild stance- that was an active shield block action-based system; and when we collected design data on essentially the efficacy and essentially the accuracy of players who used that wasn't very high; and there is a concern at least on the front of implementing a action restricted type active shield block as opposed to what would traditionally be along the lines of activating a buff that grants a shield block rate adjustment and is universal on incoming damage- and interfaces with the stats- is really something that we're leaning towards in incorporating for the hybrid combat system.[117]Steven Sharif

This is something we're still actively iterating on and actively going to be testing in our hybrid system but you know as we're as we're doing that we are taking into consideration. Obviously we want action based components to also interact in some way shape or form with the waterfall stat system as well; and you know that seems like it might be an oxymoron from an action to tab sense, but it doesn't have to be. There can be components of action- so say for instance you could have a dual component where you activate that shield stance and if you accurately intercept an incoming projectile or a skill that's been initiated from the forward arc, you get 80% damage mitigation or 80% application of the physical defense of the shield; and if it comes from an area outside of that forward arc then you get a lesser bonus; and that essentially what would happen is let's say you take into account the stat of the shield's physical defense value, you apply it as a mitigating factor to the incoming damage, but in addition you augment that system with the waterfall stat that is responsible for shield damage mitigation or shield rate; and maybe you know the default skill says 80% damage mitigation from forward arc but that gets augmented up to 87% because of your stat essentially; and if it's not in your forward arc then it gets you know 50% efficacy- maybe it's 40 something percent. So just to give you kind of insight into what goes into kind of determining these skills and how they interact on an action-based front.[117]Steven Sharif

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse armor

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse armor comes with associated skills/abilities.[119] There are two types of armor: Upper and lower body.[120]

Armor grants damage mitigation.[119]

What you're seeing currently in the Battle Royale feature of Apocalypse is you find armor and that gives you an armor pool and then you can regenerate your armor. What we're going to be experiencing in the castle siege form is each class will have a set amount of armor that they join the match with that's already full and a set amount of health that's already full. Upon losing armor you can either have your armor replenished by an Engineer or there there may be ability for you to find items that are in the world or there could be objectives that replenish armor for the entire team, such as one of the buffs for taking a control point.[121]Steven Sharif

Modular armor

Kaelar base level Ashes of Creation Apocalypse robe set.

You can kind of start to see like some of the components that we put together that we can mix and match and kind of make new armors from. This is kind of like the base chassis for all of that.[146]Jeffrey Bard

This is what we call our t-shirt and pants. So this gives you a perfect example of just how the most basic you'll ever look in alpha. So even our most basic look, we're really trying to bring it and put a lot of detail in it.[147]Mat Broome

Your base look for the character can be pretty boring, but what Steven gave us a challenge with from day one was to make sure even the base look, the t-shirt and pants, looked amazing... This is your zero character, if you will... Then you can go in and customize everything from the shoulder pads to the elbow pads, the belt that goes around them; do you want duel belts, you want to harness the clothes in the front. So every piece you see on here you can actually customize that at the front end. So what we do is we scale that up from zero, ten and twenty... We scale it up and we customize it; and then I want to really stress that each one of those looks as you progress is different. We're not just repurposing the same armor pieces. We're making unique sets that complement each other as you progress.[146]Mat Broome

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse will have three different armor themes: Plate, leather and robe.[147]

You can actually have three different types of themes: You have plate, you'll have leather and you'll have robe. So for every armor set that we're showing at each one of those tiers, you're actually gonna have nine unique looks to pick from.[147]Mat Broome

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse user interface

Alpha-1 early preview skills UI.[153]

The UI implementation will be highly customizable, whether it be from resizing, a movement, recoloring, different types of UI flavors that will be presented and offered to players as well. We want to have a very very robust UI system so we know that that's something that's more personally oriented in people's preferences rather than something that can be a one-size-fits-all.[154]Steven Sharif

The Ashes of Creation user interface (UI) is built with customization in mind, rather than being one-size-fits-all.[154][156]

  • Resizing, moving, recoloring and different UI flavors will be offered to players.[154]

The UI will be very adaptable for many play styles.[157]Steven Sharif

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse mini map

There is an in-game mini map and compass user interface in Alpha-1.[158][159]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse camera settings

The Ashes of Creation Apocalypse camera is a tied third-person view, over the shoulder, for the purposes of reticle specific zoom options and aim-down-sights. This is solely intended for the current action combat.[160]

The idea behind our hybrid system is going to obviously be customizable from a traditional higher up third-person view that is seen in MMORPGs; and then to have that customizable so that more action-oriented players might be able to come in closer to the character and have more feasibility there.[160]Steven Sharif

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse hotkeys

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse gameplay settings.

Players are able to customize their keyboard control scheme.[161]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse battle royale gryphon redeployment.[163]

Press B to redeploy your gryphon when you're high enough in the air![163]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse controller support

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse may have controller support.[165]

Controller support will likely be something we work on closer to launch.[167]Steven Sharif
