The design of Ashes of Creation adheres to five main pillars.[1]

  1. Histoire engageante et immersive
  2. Monde réactif
  3. Interaction joueur
  4. Agence de joueur
  5. Risk vs reward

In designing Ashes of Creation, we adhere every detail to five main pillars: Engaging and Immersive Story, a Reactive World, Player Interaction, Player Agency, and Risk vs Reward. Even in the environment, everything you as the player do will tie into these pillars, while everything your guild does, everything your server does will ultimately keep the world fresh, ever-changing, and most importantly... exciting.[1]

Historique de la page

There were originally four design pillars: Économie, Nœuds, Meaningful conflict and Narrative.[2]

Design

Aperçu de la refonte du site web de Ashes of Creation (WIP).[3]

Ashes of Creation prend place dans un cadre médiéval fantastique, mêlant imagination et graphismes de pointe. Nous remettons le mot massif au centre du "massivement multijoueur" avec des mécanismes uniques et novateurs qui donneront un sens à l'action des joueurs. Ashes of Creation intégrera les meilleurs éléments des MMORPG traditionnels avec des concepts sandbox innovants. Vous choisirez votre destin à chaque occasion. Les lignes de quêtes s'ouvriront et se fermeront en fonction des interactions des joueurs avec leur monde, car il s'agit d'un monde où les choix ont des conséquences. Des monstres errent et deviennent de plus en plus féroces à mesure que la civilisation perturbe l'ordre naturel des choses. De l'emplacement des villes à leur taille, vous déterminerez le paysage de votre monde. Il sera unique par sa culture, son écologie et son économie.[4]

Ashes of Creation est un MMORPG à venir qui se déroule dans un monde de "haute fantaisie" où les différents choix des joueurs façonnent et définissent le monde qui les entoure.[5]

Ashes of Creation à une approche unique de l'expérience MMO. La structure de notre monde est dynamique et conçue pour réagir aux actions de nos joueurs. Les cités s'élèveront et s'effondreront, leurs populations étant basées sur l'histoire du monde telle que les joueurs l'ont créée. Les quêtes se débloquent au fur et à mesure que ces populations grossissent, que leurs besoins augmentent et que des secrets soient révélés. Étant donné que l'environnement des PNJ à travers le jeu est établie en temps réel, les joueurs auront donc la possibilité de détruire ce qu'ils ont créé, ouvrant la voie à un nouveau développement, à de nouvelles populations et à un véritable changement. Les luttes et intrigues politiques joueront un rôle très important dans la structure de votre monde. L'époque des mondes statiques est révolue, le changement est là pour rester.[4]

Le nom original du projet pour Ashes of Creation était The World of Origins.[6]

When it comes to how MMO’s have been traditionally designed, most gamers are familiar with two distinct types of gameplay loops: the “theme park”, and the “sandbox”. The vast majority of MMO’s we’ve all seen come and go in the gaming industry have been of the theme park variety – these games put the player onto a specific path, guiding them along, with plenty of pretty sights in between the same old quest hubs, very little in divergent paths, virtually no freedom in player progression. Recently the MMO genre has seen some games of the sandbox nature come onto the scene, but despite the ultimate freedom the sandbox affords players, many are left wanting more, as there is by definition no pre built world content, no human touch, just the vastness of the “sand” for lack of a better term. Thus many MMO players often find themselves caught between the repetitive rock of the theme park or the vast dead spaces of the sandbox’s hard place. This chasm between the state of MMO gameplay loops is where we intend to inject Ashes of Creation’s Node system.[5]

In order for sandbox mechanics to mean something, there must be curated content to accompany the player’s choices. Which means, as the developers, we must create that Themebox style content but for every possible path the community may take.[7]Steven Sharif

Inspiration

Ashes of Creation puise son inspiration dans plusieurs MMORPGS.[8]

Lorsque l'on s'interroge sur ce qui a été fait avant, on regarde toujours qui a fait quoi le mieux et on essaie de s'en inspirer: Faire avancer le genre; mettre les choses au goût du jour.[8]Jeffrey Bard

End-game

There is not going to be a typical end-game in Ashes of Creation.[9]

Part of the whole experience with nodes is that there is no real end-game, in that the world is constantly shifting every day. Month one is going to be really different from month two; and that's for the level 50s and level 1s.[9]Jeffrey Bard

We want the game to be a living game, which means that all content should be relevant at all times. I’d say that we try to make as little distinction between the leveling up experience and the end game experience as possible. The whole journey is important to us, in order to maximize the fun people have during different stages of the game.[10]Sarah Flanagan

Histoire engageante et immersive

Topics that reflect the past and the present of Verra.

Monde réactif

Topics that describe how the world of Verra evolves based on player activity.

Ashes of Creation will be a living, breathing, reactive world. Your actions will shape the Zones of Influence, leveling Nodes to form massive Cities, and create the story of the world that everyone experiences.[13]Margaret Krohn

Interaction joueur

Game systems and mechanics that foster player interaction.

We decided to focus on mechanics that bring the idea of community to the forefront. To get people to interact with each other meaningfully – not just to conquer a raid boss, or to get some coin from a faceless auction house, but to maybe save a city. A city that all the local residents had a stake in. A city that the players had spent weeks or months developing; the defense of that city, the attack on that city! Or building a world together as a community choosing our own fate with our friends. We believe that’s going to be a story far more memorable and far more meaningful to players than just about anything we can come up with.[15]

Agence de joueur

Systems that grow and shape player experiences in the game.

We will have a lot of content that is available, but those will be behind doors that are accessible through agency on behalf of the community. In a traditional sense, no we are not a theme-park, however we will probably have more content than a theme-park does, traditionally. Just because, in order for those choices to be meaningful, there must be meaningful content behind the door you choose.[17]Steven Sharif

Risque contre récompense

Activities that reward daring adventurers and foster meaningful conflict.

The risk versus reward relationship, when, say for instance, you've dedicated time towards building a node and other players have dedicated that equivalent time towards sieging the node, there's going to be a pitched battle between those players... They spend that time doing this because they care passionately about having access to that content.[19]Steven Sharif
