Ashes of Creation

Ashes of Creation (AoC) ist ein MMORPG in der Entwicklung, das in einer offenen Welt der hohen fantasie spielt.[14]

Ashes of Creation ist ein MMORPG in der Entwicklung, das in einer Welt der hohen fantasie spielt, in der die Entscheidungen der Spieler die Welt um sie herum formen und gestalten werden.[14]

Ashes of Creation ist eine einzigartige Interpretation des MMO-Erlebnisses. Unsere Weltstruktur ist dynamisch und darauf ausgerichtet, auf die Handlungen unserer Spieler zu reagieren. Städte werden aufsteigen und wieder fallen, ihre Bevölkerung basiert auf der Geschichte der Welt, wie sie die Spieler erschaffen. Quests werden freigeschaltet, wenn sich die Völker versammeln, ihre Bedürfnisse wachsen und Geheimnisse freigeschaltet werden.[15]

Da die NSC-Struktur der Welt in Echtzeit aufgebaut wird, haben die Spieler die Möglichkeit, das zu zerstören, was sie geschaffen haben und ebnen den Weg für neue Entwicklungen, neue Bevölkerungsgruppen und echte Veränderungen. Politische Auseinandersetzungen und Intrigen werden eine sehr reale Rolle in der Struktur deiner Welt spielen.[15]

Vorbei sind die Tage der statischen Welten, der Wandel ist hier, um zu bleiben.[15]

Alpha-1 testing

Alpha-1 testing is scheduled for fall 2020. Everything prior to this date is considered QA testing that Alpha-1 backers are invited to join in stages.[17]

  • Limited Alpha-1 testing began May 28, 2020 with Royalty and above backers. Initially these tests will be conducted during single day sessions, which over the course of several months will evolve into weekend testing periods.[20]
  • The text and voice NDA has been lifted from this testing phase.[21]

The testing in May-June will likely remain under NDA until I feel comfortable with stability.[18]Steven Sharif

  • Leader of men pack holders will be invited to start testing in August.[22]
  • Over the summer, Alpha-1 testing will expand to include all Braver of worlds backers and above. They will also start off with weekend testing periods.[20]
  • Closer to fall the aim is to invite all Alpha-1 players to participate in week long testing sessions.[20]

Finally, I am happy to announce that limited Alpha One testing will begin in May of 2020 starting with our highest level Alpha One backers from Kickstarter. This testing will include our Phoenix Initiative backers and above at first. As the game client becomes more stable during this limited testing, we will begin to introduce our Braver-of-World and above backers, and eventually our Intrepid pre-order pack holders. Our goal is to have the Alpha One game client ready for full testing in Fall of 2020. Now obviously this timeline is subject to the preliminary testing and its success during the next several months, so make sure to temper expectations. The whole purpose of testing Ashes is to create a solid and enjoyable experience, while iterating on game design and implementation. The important takeaway of this announcement is that we are making progress towards a playable experience. There is still a long road ahead, and many systems in Alpha One are core systems that require more fleshing out still. And even now I cannot guarantee delays will not occur, but we will strive to be transparent and communicate with you about our successes and failures.[20]Steven Sharif

The initial tests in May with our Phoenix Initiative and above backers will be conducted during single day sessions, which over the course of several months will eventually evolve into weekend testing periods as the Alpha One game client becomes more stable. Over the summer, as we expand the participating Alpha One testers to include Bravers and above, they too will start off with weekend experiences that will test the patience of our players. As we get closer to Fall of this year, we aim to invite all Alpha One players to participate in weeklong testing sessions and push the limits of our Alpha One experience. As we approach these testing periods, we will be updating you with schedules and instructions.[20]Steven Sharif

Alpha-1 participation

There are slightly under 10,000 participants in Alpha-1 testing.[23]

Our target goal from a testing standpoint was ten thousand players. We have just under that - I believe we have 9,300, and we wanted to keep that manageable. Our intent is to have two servers that we have up and running for Alpha 1 Phase 2, with 5000 on each. Our goal ultimately is 10,000 concurrent, but we’re going to begin stress-testing at 5000.[24]Steven Sharif

Alpha-1 NDA

Alpha-1, Alpha-2, Beta-1, Beta-2 releases are not covered by NDA (non-disclosure agreement).[25]

  • QA testing prior to the full release of Alpha-1 will likely be covered by NDA.[18]
    • The text and voice NDA was lifted from the PI QA testing phase on May 28, 2020.[21]

Alpha-1 servers will be provisioned in the following regions.[26]

Alpha-1 servers will support 1,500 concurrent users.[13]

Umgebungen

We are a high fantasy game... That means that outside of the traditional sorts of environments you're going to start seeing some pretty crazy and wild stuff that will also change based on seasons.[33]Jeffrey Bard
