If you’re heading to PAX West in September, you might want to make plans to visit the Ashes of Creation booth at the show. The team will be on hand to take groups of players on a tour through the MMO’s first public demo to get a taste of what the game might offer.
“The setting is a volcanic area that has been in turmoil since the world ended. A terrible evil lies dormant within the mountain,” said the team in a press release. “Players will get their first taste of combat, escorting caravans, and establishing a village node before diving into the dungeon.”
Intrepid Studios also announced that it has hired six new members for its team: Chris Myers (Senior Animator), Chris Atkins (Senior Character Artist), Javier Perez (Senior Environment Artist), Bernard Kauffman (Game Designer), Joshua Epel (Game Designer), and Ryan Richmond (Concept Artist). The studio is still looking to fill several other positions, including a game designer, community manager, and a producer.
