Alpha-2 character creator user interface (first pass).[1]

Alpha-2 is intending to be obviously a very large chunk of the game's mechanics: a very very big percentage of it.[2]Steven Sharif

Ein Großteil der geplanten Spielsysteme in Ashes of Creation soll in der Alpha-2 verfügbar sein.[2]








Alpha-1 und Alpha-2-Tester können vor der Veröffentlichung der Alpha-2 zu Spottests eingeladen werden.[28]

Alpha-2 ist als die dauerhafte Alpha bekannt.[29][30]

Dauerhafte Alpha

"Dauerhaft" bedeutet, dass die Alpha 2-Server Tag und Nacht bis zum Launch online sind.[29]

  • Es kann zur Löschung von Charakteren kommen (Wipes).[32][29]
  • Es kann zu Löschungen des gesamten erreichten Fortschritts kommen (Wipes).[32][29]
  • Die Server der Alpha 2 werden nach der Veröffentlichung zu den öffentlichen Testservern (PTS).[32][29]
    • Genutzt, um Patches und Updates zu testen.
  • Beta-1 und Beta-2 werden wahrscheinlich nicht dauerhaft sein.[29]

Das ultimative Ziel für die Alpha 2 ist es, dauerhaft zu sein und anschließend zu den PTS zu werden. Bevor es soweit ist, rechne ich aber noch mit einigen Wipes.[32]Steven Sharif

Alpha-2 server wipes

Alpha and Beta servers will be wiped prior to launch.[33]

  • Alpha-1 testing phases will include full wipes.[34]
  • Servers may also be wiped between individual tests, unless the developers require progression to be saved for certain spot tests.[35]

As a general rule, if the testing phase contains the word Alpha, it is safe to assume there will likely be wipes.[32]Steven Sharif

Alpha testing system requirements

Alpha-1 stress testing, March 17, 2021.[36]

Funny story; So yesterday as we are stress/density testing with our NDA testers, I accidentally summoned 5k bears around our few hundred players. But hey, it didn’t crash! Can you spot Lt. Toast here?[36]Steven Sharif

These are fully operational NPCs. They have behavior trees, they have AI blackboards; you know they are functioning as an NPC would; and to my surprise, to everyone's surprise actually, the server handled it quite well: 5000 entities all within a very dense area.[37]Steven Sharif

Recommended specification.[38]

  • Operating System: Windows 10 64-Bit
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz / AMD FX-9590 4.7GHz
  • Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon R9 Fury with 4GB and DirectX 12
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection

  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible Sound Card

Tulnar race

The Tulnar race will be in place before Alpha-2. Concepts and early works are expected at that time.[14]

Zeitplan für See-Inhalte

See-Inhalte will be present in Alpha-2.[42][2]

Artisan classes timeline

Handwerksklassen (Sammeln, Verarbeitung, Handwerkskunst) will come online fully in Alpha-2 and the Betas.[44][20]

Crafting honestly will not come online in any sense of its true form until Alpha-2. Alpha-1 has essentially what are intended to be the core gameplay loop of crafting, meaning the collection of materials, the translation of those materials into processed goods, and the use of those processed goods into item acquisition. That's the core gameplay loop that is currently present in Alpha-1. But those are mostly facilitated kind of piggy backing the merchant systems right now and not actually using the real crafting system; and that's because crafting hasn't been completed in a form that can be implemented in Alpha-1, but will be for Alpha-2. What's present in Alpha-1 doesn't even really scratch the surface for crafting.[20]Steven Sharif

Alpha-2 NDA

Alpha-1, Alpha-2, Beta-1, Beta-2 releases are not covered by NDA (non-disclosure agreement).[46]

Beteiligung

Alpha and Beta participation is expected to grow with the sale of pre-order packs.[50]

Testing phases

Ashes of Creation early access packages:

The game will be feature complete before Beta... Beta really is intended to identify last minute bugs to make sure that everything is ready for launch; it's important that all features are complete by Beta-1. Alpha-2 will not be feature complete at the start of Alpha-2. There are going to be updates that are going to be incorporated as part of the Alpha-2 process and there are going to be additional features that come online that get fleshed out between that time and Beta-1. There's going to be regions of the maps that aren't going to be accessible of course during Alpha-2.[59]Steven Sharif
