Beta NDA

Alpha-1, Alpha-2, Beta-1, Beta-2 releases are not covered by NDA (non-disclosure agreement).[9]

We may not always announce when the NDA testing is, because we're not definitive how that testing is going to influence the future testing schedule; and we don't want to set the wrong expectation from a broader audience perspective on what they should be expecting with regards to testing.[13]Steven Sharif

Testing phases

Ashes of Creation testing phases.

Q: What will happen to early access that was purchased from mail.ru?
A: Players who purchased through Mail.ru will have access to testing periods they were entitled to with their purchases from Mail.ru. There are some complexities to this matter, please ensure you have a registered account with Intrepid, and submit a support ticket with your original Mail.ru email, and our support team will help you out.[23]Steven Sharif

Ashes of Creation's core game systems are expected to be in place at the start of Alpha-2.[24][25] By the end of Alpha-2, the game is expected to be feature complete, but it will not be content complete until launch.[26][2]

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.[2]Steven Sharif
Alpha-2 is intended to exist up until launch. There's going to be different testing periods that we will be releasing either new content locations or zones or systems that we want to have players focus in on. In those situations, if we're having participation drought because of the length of Alpha-2, we can set them up in a more focused setting. We can even incentivize that. We can offer unique testing to potentially new testers as well.[26]Steven Sharif
  • The developers will not necessarily announce NDA testing periods.[13]

Packs de précommande

Packs de précommande were available from the Magasin cosmétique up until they ended on January 17, 2024 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific.[21][22]

We offer cosmetics for players who wish to support the project early. The exclusive nature of the limited availability is something I think collectors value. If you buy cosmetics as an MMO player, I know I enjoyed if the cosmetic is rare and not every girl at the party is wearing the same dress. In addition, these cosmetics are used to populate the world through NPC variants and color/texture changes so their offering aligns with our production schedule. The good thing about these packs is they contain no P2W advantages and there is no box cost, so from a mechanics standpoint you do not need to buy them to excel in the game on launch. And also, there are comparable and subjectively more grand cosmetics achievable in game as well.[31]Steven Sharif

Participation

  • Alpha-0 had over 2,500 participants.[32]
  • Alpha-1 testing had approximately 9,600 participants as of August, 2018.[33][34] There were slightly over 13k participants as of May 31, 2021.[33] There were 5,300 unique logins during the 3 day weekend test of May 27, 2021.[33]

Server wipes

Alpha and Beta servers will be wiped prior to launch.[30]

As a general rule, if the testing phase contains the word Alpha, it is safe to assume there will likely be wipes.[40]Steven Sharif
