Early access

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.[46]Steven Sharif

Ashes of Creation

Aperçu de la refonte du site web de Ashes of Creation (WIP).[47]

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.[48]

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.[49]

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.[48]

Le nom original du projet pour Ashes of Creation était The World of Origins.[50]

Alpha-1

Alpha-1 aperçu du combat JcE.[52]

L'Alpha-1 est une version de test de Ashes of Creation MMORPG.[54] L'Alpha 1 testera:

Il est possible que la sortie de l'Alpha-1 précède celle du mode horde d'Ashes of Creation Apocalypse.[61]

Alpha-2

Alpha-2 - Interface utilisateur du système création de personnages (première itération).[62]

L'alpha 2 a pour objectif d'intégrer une très grande partie des mécanismes du jeu : un très très grand pourcentage.[63]Steven Sharif

Alpha-2 - Introduction du système de création de personnages (première itération).[64]

Un large pourcentage des systèmes de jeu devrait être en place pour l'Alpha 2 de Ashes of Creation.[63]

  • Monde de jeu
    • La Carte de l'Alpha 2 sera d'une taille approximative de 220 km2.[65]
      L'Alpha 2 va probablement représenter environ la moitié de l'espace mondial disponible dans le cadre des tests. Je dirais un peu plus de 220 kilomètres carrés de monde à explorer pour les joueurs, ce qui représente une partie assez complète du jeu.[65]Steven Sharif
    • Climate system.[63]

Les testeurs de l'Alpha 1 et l'Alpha 2 peuvent être invités à participer à des tests ponctuels avant le début de l'Alpha 2 persistante.[84]

L'Alpha 2 sera normalement une alpha persistante.[31][32]

Beta testing

The Beta-1 and Beta-2 testing phases of Ashes of Creation will be short.[85]

The game should be pretty much done (at beta stage) and final polish and stuff like that being put in. We don't want people to get totally burnt out on the game before we actually release. So once we get to the beta phases it should be short and sweet.[85]Jeffrey Bard

Beta testing of Ashes of Creation (the MMORPG) will be closed.[88]

Head start

Head start grants early access one or two days prior to the live launch of Ashes of Creation for crowdfunding backers at the Founder level and above.[89]

  • Head start is a means to gradually ramp up the population to avoid player concurrency issues at launch.[90]
  • Head start will also be a way to address any last-minute launch or deployment issues.[91]

The point of head start is twofold: One for testing, making sure that the live launch servers pre-wipe are good; and then Two, it's a way to stagger the population move into the game. Because if you have servers with 10,000 concurrent player capability and you have everyone logging in at the exact same time, that is a problem I've never seen an MMO tackle successfully, ever.[90]Steven Sharif

Headstart servers

The number of head start servers is estimated to be three. This is subject to change.[92]

  • There will be an OCE headstart server.[93]

Headstart limitations

The game functionality is limited during the head start period so that players cannot decide the world-scape earlier than others.[94]

  • During the head start, the node system will be deactivated.[94]
  • Head start specific servers are also planned.[94]
  • It will not be possible to secure player housing during the headstart period due to the deactivation of the node system.[94]

Head start was not a mistake, I tend to listen to my development team with regards to their vast past experiences in mmo launches and development. Advice from engineering on head starts was they are extremely desired in order to test any last minute launch/deployment issues that “always” happen. So I did as much as possible to mitigate the potential p2w elements/issues while still adhering to sound development principles. Including designating which servers are head start servers. So wanna make sure we don’t “chop” this one as a mistake or misstep. Everything done is done to ensure a quality launch/product.[91]Steven Sharif

NDA

Participation

Alpha and Beta participation is expected to grow with the sale of pre-order packs.[98]

Server wipes

Alpha and Beta servers will be wiped prior to launch.[99]

  • Alpha-1 testing phases will include full wipes.[100]
  • Servers may also be wiped between individual tests, unless the developers require progression to be saved for certain spot tests.[101]

As a general rule, if the testing phase contains the word Alpha, it is safe to assume there will likely be wipes.[102]Steven Sharif
