Ashes of Creation opens new storefront, alpha zero set to begin today

After weeks of silence, Ashes of Creation looks like it might be gearing up for the promised December 15th Alpha Zero test. While the team hasn’t recently confirmed that today’s test is still on track to begin, Intrepid Studios did open up the game’s new storefront yesterday to sell merchandise, in-game items, and four pre-order packs.

The pre-order packs are not necessary to gain access to the launch game (as that will be subscription-only), but they do contain several advance bonuses such as in-game currency, game time, accessories, and access to the different stages of testing. The $75 Wayfarer pack will guarantee Beta 2 access, while moving to the very top, the $500 Intrepid pack will get you in to Alpha 1 and beyond.

“We’re nearing the most exciting time of Ashes of Creation’s development,” said Creative Director Steven Sharif in a press release. “With the Alpha Zero test right around the corner, and more alphas and betas planned throughout 2018. We’re well on the way towards launching the revolutionary MMORPG of our dreams, and we could not do it without an unbelievably amazing community supporting us.”

So if you posted a picture of yourself in a halloween costume you would be playing right now. I almost did but decided that the picture was not apporate for their public forums. I am laughing and playing other games, but the 500 dollar tier was for the people that log in and go this game is broken what the heck I spent 500 dollars I will keep playing. Those of us that tossed in a hundred dollars or more in the early campaign start playing when the world is up more often and likely more finsihed so that people don’t log in once, write a bad review and walk away from the game. The whole point of testing prior to release is to get more eyes on the mistakes and be able to fix them before people decide to walk away from the game.

So I would say if you don’t want to play an unfinished game go play an arcade machine. They are usually not ever updates. If you want to help test a game you have to part of their communities. I will be busy fixing my ship and playing video games. it is the holiday season people try to at least pretend to be positive.

How did we go from getting to play the beta if you preordered a game to paying $500 to play a game that doesn’t even have any game play yet?

So is there an NDA for these?

Yes. And it doesn’t say I have to keep a secret that I’m in the test or that there’s a NDA (some NDAs do!). But it’s pretty blanket for covering anything about the software itself.

Glad to hear they are getting traction. Once a final product is out, I’ll give it a shot.

This is like the Star Citizen of fantasy MMORPGs. Lots of ways to spend money, little to no chance to actually play it. It’ll be another couple years before this actually releases.

Except I spent $75 on SC and that got me everything including pre Alpha access and I could have gotten all that for $40. Where as it’s $500 to get into AOC pre Alpha.
