Ashes of Creation previews PAX pre-alpha tutorial, plans ‘alpha zero’ for December


If you can’t make the Ashes of Creation demo and panel at this weekend’s PAX West, don’t fret: You can still check out the game’s current state in its new pre-alpha tutorial video, almost 10 minutes of narrated in-game footage, including combat (and it’s looking pretty good, especially for a pre-alpha!). There’s a run-down of the quartet of classes that were previewed earlier this week too.

There’s more. “We are proud to announce that our Alpha Zero will begin December 15th, 2017,” the studio posts excitedly. (I say excitedly because there are two exclamation points.) “This Alpha Zero is only available to registered members on our website through weekly drawings.”

We’ll be at PAX this weekend to check the game out in person; for now, the video’s below.

The game looks good. But something bother me. Why choosing “Tank” as a class name?? It just not fit with the fantasy universe at all and it’s a term that mmo players have chosen to define a role. It doesn’t make sense to me and it show a lack of cohesion in their fantasy lore.

So, why not renaming their ranger class as “shooter”??


Yes this annoys me to NO end

That Alpha weekly Drawing is a god damn Slap in the Face to those of us who paid to get into Alpha..


Especially those of us who paid $450… USD.


That scrolling text has to go, The UI looks so good and then that dmg/combo spam makes it look so bad and cheap.


Many MMOs have options to turn that off and/or make it look different. It’s way too early to tell how Ashes will end up.

Looking forward to reading third party impressions from PAX.

I kickstarted, but I have avoided being involved with the community, makes the wait seem shorter. However they have been making some great progress so after crunch time ends at work in a month or two I may try jumping on the train.
