Ashes of Creation’s Apocalypse is now expected to launch this afternoon

It brewing

It’s been a bit of a slow start for Ashes of Creation’s Apocalypse mode, which was meant to launch yesterday following the deployment of Intrepid’s new website, but as the game’s Twitter account chronicled, that didn’t quite happen thanks to “an issue on the deployment.”

However, as of this morning the site is live and downloading of the game has begun, though the game servers aren’t actually up just yet.

When launched, this alpha battle royale mode will be a free-to-play, openly accessible test arena for everyone to experience part of Ashes of Creation, whether or not you backed the game in Kickstarter or purchased a package from the website since. Apocalypse, Intrepid has stressed, is not a replacement for the MMORPG; work on the real MMO continues as this test rolls out, and players will accrue perks for their MMO account in the battle royale.

Meh. Might care once it gets to the siege and PvE stuff that is supposed to come, but until then I will let the people who enjoy getting told grotesque things in a giant PvP RNG layout have their day. There’s too many other good things to play!

Tried for about 30 minutes to get into a game. I seem to make it to the pre-game lobby and then either crash or get kicked to the main menu.

Today has not been a good day for launching games.

Rule #1 for all the Newbies posting about Troubles.

The only thing worthy of mention here are the graphics.

Account creation and log in are having issues.

After about 15 minutes I was able to create and verify my account, but entering account information into the launcher just results in it doing nothing for a while and then going back to the log in screen.

Couldn’t get Silverlock again when did my login become popular. Years ago I always got it. :(

I have now managed to get the game installing. Had to wait and try a few times though.

Finished installing but the game wont run. I’m guessing that the game servers aren’t up yet.

Shouldn’t this be a terrible BR by design though? The point of the mmo wont be to have 1 v 1 balance right? I would think that some classes just wont be viable in this setting, and if they try to balance for 1 v 1 then the mmo would most likely suffer.

I’ll check it out. I dislike Battle Royale games, but I’m curious to see the state of the combat and performance.
