Intrepid Studios has released a new video, showing 1 hour and 45 minutes of gameplay footage from Ashes of Creation. As the team noted, this is pre-alpha footage, meaning that you may notice numerous bugs.
Moreover, the game is still largely unpolished unoptimized. After all, the team’s primary focus is testing core systems and functionality. Additionally, you will see mechanics implemented that are not intended design. Also, many things will change and Art/FX will get polished up before the Alpha One release late this year.
Ashes of Creation is an upcoming MMORPG. The game will take place in a high fantasy open world that promises to offer choice, organic events, player narratives and massive communities. All of these 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).
Ashes of Creation will be using Unreal 4 Engine. The team also plans to make the game playable on mid-range hardware.
Like most MMOs, the game will offer PvE and PvP, will feature crafting, looting and trading systems, caravans, lots of quests, 8 distinct races at launch, and will allow players to survey and develop land anywhere in the world.
