A wild MMORPG appears! Your excitement or skepticism is super effective!
So here’s your out-of-the-blue MMO reveal for Tuesday. The game is called Ashes of Creation, a relatively new project that is focused on making an expansive sandbox with an ever-changing world that players shape and mold through combat, economy, and choices. The website looks attractive enough, but solid information on Intrepid Studios and team members (who purport to be industry vets) is somewhat vague.
The creator’s inaugural post lays down the framework for the game’s design philosophy: “We’re creating an MMO based on our core principles as designers; we believe in choice, organic events, player narratives and massive communities. All of these come together in what we call our ‘Living World.’ Players will shape the world we create through dynamic quests, castle sieges, our settlement system, an economy that goes well beyond the auction house, and player housing (among many other systems). We’ll set up the initial state, you decide where it goes from there.”
Ashes of Creation claims to be funded thus far from the team lead’s pockets and other limited investors, although there will be a Kickstarter coming in the future. For now, check out the website and the following pair of concept videos, and let us know what you think in the comments!
