During the Ashes of Creation panel at PAX West, Founder and Creative Director Steven Sharif announced the exact date of the upcoming Alpha 0: Come December 15th, 2017, some players will be able to dive in and begin testing the gameplay. Con attendees have been able to get a tiny taste of both the PvE and PvP content in the game.
Sharif also offered more reveals. Although his appearance as a special guest did not work out, Bear McCreary will compose the game’s score. McCreary is known for work on a number of movies, shows like Battlestar Galactica, Agents of Shield, 10 Clover Lane, Defiance, Caprica, and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
Also, in response to an audience member question, the name of the world was finally made public: Players will live their AoC lives on Verra.
