During last night’s much-heralded Ashes of Creation livestream, Intrepid Studios demoed a trailer previewing its castle siege mode. Hey, that ought to perk up those of you grumpy about battle royale – this mode is much more MMOsy. “Trebuchets, ballistae, catapults, siege towers, giant balls of fire and broken castle walls… It’s gonna be a good time, right?” the studio says.
“We also revealed the classes that are coming to the same with the Castle Siege update. There are six in total, spread across three disciplines – Warrior, DPS, and Support. The Guardian and Weaponmaster are your Warrior classes, while the Archwizard and the Hawkeye are ranged DPS experts, and finally the High Priest and Engineer will be your support classes. We can’t wait to show them off in action very soon.”
Apocalypse is currently in the middle of an open beta weekend, for which you can still sign up to take part if you’re so inclined.
