Play as a spider or dragon in Trials of Ascension: Exile’s early access

    
2

While we may only faintly remember Trials of Ascension: Exile for a pair of failed Kickstarter campaigns back in 2015, the hardcore fantasy sandbox nevertheless has persevered in development to the point where the title went into Steam early access last month.

The game is perhaps most notable for the fact that, along with playing as a boring human, you can adventure through the world as a web-spinning spider or a flame-spitting dragon. It’s a survival game at heart, so expect a lot of crafting, building, and (presumably) dying. Speaking of dying, one of the server options is to allow permadeath, a feature that the team feels is desirable to certain players.

Trials of Ascension’s first early access patch rolled out this week with lots of quality-of-life and database improvements. The dev team has a huge shopping list of features that it is working on for the future, including a magic system, various growth stages for characters, and more server host options.

Well, this only took 15 years.

Ditch developing that lame human and instead focus on playing as a giant spider or dragon in that world, then you will have my attention and more likely my money.
