Ashes of Creation’s Kickstarter is live, seeking $750,000 to bolster the ‘rebirth of the MMORPG’

“If necessary, I have made some very good friends in my previous business endeavors who are dying to invest.” -Steven Sharif, Massively OP interview, May 2017
As promised, Ashes of Creation’s Kickstarter has just gone live — Intrepid Studios is seeking $750,000, and it’s already racked up $190,000 of that as I type this. Unlike most games that claim the MMO moniker these days, AoC is all about the massive, thanks in no small part to the MMORPG pedigrees of its team, with an emphasis on player-governed territory, economy, world building, and consequential PvP.

Ashes of Creation is a new MMORPG that aims to bring the Massive back to Massively Multiplayer,” declares the Kickstarter preamble. “It takes everything we love about the genre and brings it boldly into the future as a truly next generation title. We’ve all wanted a world that lives and breathes and reacts, where our decisions matter, where the world changes because of what we’ve done. Ashes of Creation is that game: The rebirth of the MMORPG.”

Here’s something we rarely see: a promise to refund in case the whole project goes belly-up. “And finally, in the case that Ashes of Creation does NOT launch, we promise to refund all backers in full.”

Check out the full Kickstarter below, and don’t miss our brand-new interview with Intrepid Studios CEO Steven Sharif on the state of the game as it pitches itself to the Kickstarter crowd.

825K in less than 24 hours. Impressive, but not swaying my opinion.

I have to say that I’m actually surprised this funded so quickly. Not that I think it’s not a good project but with all the delays we have seen in the last 2 years I thought gamers were burned out on kickstarter.

What delays? Game development takes time, and players aren’t used to seeing it from day 1.

Well Camelot unchained for one. We are now well over 1 year late for the beta. Not complaining about CU. Just using them as an example.

To be clear though I was talking about previous kickstarters not Ashes of creation when talking about delays.

It’s over its goal as of the time of this post. $751,088 (above their $750,000 goal).

Is this a record?

edit: and still climbing. :-O

Looks interesting, will give them a shot. May come down to the UI and combat as to my length of stay.

They already hit $712,000 + looks like a win for Intrepid.

Couldn’t even work out if it was a PvP or PVE MMO from the kickstarter page.

I wish them good luck but won’t back ex Sony developers until I see an actual finished product.

As they say in the video, it is PvP with flagging, so you choose if you want to be involved by choosing your flag.

More specifically, a flagged player can attack an unflagged player, but KILLING an unflagged player results in an outlaw flag that comes with heavy penalties that increase the more unflagged players you kill, AND makes it so that unflagged players can attack you without being flagged.

Already $650,000 +

I’ll be surprised if they don’t meet their goal today.
