Ashes of Creation Apocalypse

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse early access trailer.[5][6]

The standalone prequel to the upcoming epic MMORPG Ashes of Creation - both a testing ground for new systems and content, as well as a unique last-man-standing action game where magic, steel, and chaos reign supreme in a high fantasy, free-to-play experience.[5]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse (also referred to as APOC)[2] is a free-to-play[7] matchmaking-based arena game with three primary modes.[8]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse utilizes action-based combat.[8][9][11]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse early access is available for download on the official website and on Steam.[4][5]

Steam really provides a great platform that reaches a lot of different users all of which you know exists in different demographics and interests; and it makes sense from a matchmaking game standpoint for a game like APOC to really funnel as many players as possible, because it gives us the most amount of data. It allows us to kickoff matches very regularly and it also introduces people who might not normally be introduced this early on to what Ashes of Creation is as a IP. As a MMORPG development it gives us access to those people. So that was really kind of what led us to you know change our minds with regards to our approach to steam with Apocalypse. With regards to the MMORPG, there are currently still no plans for the MMORPG to be on steam.[16]Steven Sharif
