Intrepid Studios has announced that its upcoming MMORPG, Ashes of Creation, will be using Unreal Engine 5. In addition, the team released the first gameplay footage from an early UE5 build that you can find below.
Ashes of Creation is an upcoming MMORPG that will take place in a high fantasy open world that promises to offer choice, organic events, player narratives and massive communities. All of these will come together in what the team calls its “Reactive World.” Players will shape the world through dynamic quests, castle sieges, the Node system, an economy that goes well beyond the auction house, and player housing (among many other systems).
Like most MMOs, the game will offer both PvE and PvP. Additionally, it will feature crafting, looting and trading systems, caravans, lots of quests, and 8 distinct races at launch. Lastly, the game promises to allow players to survey and develop land anywhere in the world.
