Ga naar: navigatie, zoeken

Ons team is toegewijd aan het uitbrengen van de MMORPG waar we allemaal op wachten. Dank naar onze community voor de geweldige steun, we hebben successvol voor Alpha-1 de kritische systemen die een opknapbeurt nodig hadden gepinpoint met behulp van ons Apocalypse testterrein. Nadat we de tijd hebben genomen om deze revisies af te ronden, zijn we blij te mogen aankondigen dat startende 20 augustus 2019, om 11:00AM PDT, de Goddelijke Poort weer open is voor meer gelimiteerde Apocalypse testsessies. We kunnen niet wachten om jullie feedback te horen op de geüpdatete prestaties, gebruikersomgeving, kunstiteratie en gevechtsveranderingen die jullie zullen zien in deze fase. We hebben veel geleerd van onze vorige tests en we gebruiken die kennis om er zeker van te zijn dat er vanaf nu af aan vloeiendere tests mogelijk zijn. Wanneer we in augustus en september successvol onze back-end veranderingen met Apocalypse gecheckt hebben, we een beter inzicht hebben voor toekomstige datums voor de belegeringsmodus, hordemodus en de veelgewilde Alpha-1. We hopen dat jullie je bij ons voegen in deze geweldige reis.[1]Steven Sharif

De Ashes of Creation releaseplanning is onderhevig aan verandering.[2]

Kwartaal twee is niet meer de voorgestelde datum voor Alpha-1. De vertraging zal niet jaren lang zijn, het zal maanden lang zijn. Echter gaan we niet- wij streven ernaar om er met de volgende vrijgegeven data 100% zeker van te zijn dat we die datum kunnen halen, wat betekent dat deze kernsystemen compleet en in een QA-formaat moeten zijn en dat we zelfverzekerd zijn dat die datum haalbaar is.[14]Steven Sharif

Early access

Ashes of Creation early access packages:

Ashes of Creation

Ashes of Creation (AoC) is een aankomende MMORPG die zich afspeelt in een high fantasy open wereld.[29]

Ashes of Creation is een aankomende MMORPG die zich afspeelt in een high-fantasy wereld waar de keuzes van de spelers de wereld om hun heen vormen.

Ashes of Creation is een unieke take op de MMO-ervaring. Onze wereldstructuur is dynamiek en gebouwd om te reageren op de acties van onze spelers. Steden zullen rijzen en vallen, de bevolking is gebaseerd op het verleden van de wereld zoals de spelers het gevormd heeft. Quests zullen vrijkomen wanneer de bevolking verzamelt, hun behoeften groeien en geheimen gevonden worden.[30]

Als de NPC-structuur van de wereld live vastgesteld wordt, zullen de spelers de mogelijkheid hebben om hetgeen wat zij gemaakt hebben te verwoesten, de weg vrij makende voor nieuwe ontwikkelingen, nieuwe bevolkingen, een echte verandering. Politieke strijd en intrige zullen een hele echte rol spelen in de structuur van je wereld.[30]

Weg zijn de dagen van statische werelden, verandering is hier om te blijven.[30]

Alpha-1

Alpha-1 (previously called Alpha-1 phase 2) is a testing release of Ashes of Creation.[34] Alpha-1 will test hybrid action/tab combat.[35]

Alpha-2

Alpha-2 is the Persistent alpha.[41][42] This release is expected to include the following:

Beta testing

The Beta-1 and Beta-2 testing phases of Ashes of Creation will be short.[48]

The game should be pretty much done (at beta stage) and final polish and stuff like that being put in. We don't want people to get totally burnt out on the game before we actually release. So once we get to the beta phases it should be short and sweet.[48]Jeffrey Bard

Beta testing of Ashes of Creation (the MMORPG) will be closed.[49]

Head start

Head start grants early access one or two days prior to the live launch of Ashes of Creation for crowdfunding backers at the Founder level and above.[51]

The point of head start is twofold: One for testing, making sure that the live launch servers pre-wipe are good; and then Two, it's a way to stagger the population move into the game. Because if you have servers with 10,000 concurrent player capability and you have everyone logging in at the exact same time, that is a problem I've never seen an MMO tackle successfully, ever.[52]Steven Sharif

Headstart servers

The number of head start servers is estimated to be three. This is subject to change.[53]

  • There will be an OCE headstart server.[54]

Headstart limitations

The game functionality is limited during the head start period so that players cannot decide the world-scape earlier than others.[55]

  • During the head start, the node system will be deactivated.
  • Head start specific servers are also planned.
  • It will not be possible to secure player housing during the headstart period due to the deactivation of the node system.

NDA

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse battle royale stress testing NDA was lifted on 19 October 2018 at 6:30PM (PDT).[7][57]

Stress testers may discuss their experience. However visuals, including streams, video recording and screenshots for the stress test are under NDA. Unlike other studios, our community quite literally is first in, to Verra. And the stress test might be messy... Only visuals are under NDA.[59][60]Steven Sharif

Participation

Alpha and Beta participation is expected to grow with the sale of pre-order packs.[62]

Server wipes

Alpha and Beta servers will be wiped prior to launch.[63]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse

Apocalypse Logo.png
Ashes of Creation Apocalypse.[65]

In Apocalypse, you land in a world on the brink of destruction. The only way out is to be the last one standing. It is an arena based game which will support a number of different game modes, including battle royale-style gameplay, castle sieges, and gigantic monster hordes! Not only is Ashes of Creation: Apocalypse an exciting standalone experience, but we're also using it to help test new tech and features for Ashes of Creation - the more you play, the closer we'll get to the final launch of our MMO. Not only that, but any rewards you earn in Apocalypse will carry over to the MMO as well! Our high fantasy setting, the vast array of gear and spells, and our massively destructible environments make for an experience unlike anything you’ve played. Hop in, stay alive, and win the glory.[66]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse (also referred to as Alpha-1 phase 1 and APOC)[68] will focus on the action side of combat.[35][69][70]

Apocalypse will be a free-to-play mode, so you won't even have to be a backer necessarily to play in it.[76]Steven Sharif

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse is available for download on Steam.[77]

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.[78]Steven Sharif
