Ashes of Creation is rotating in a new set of cosmetic items for pre-orders

This is fine.

So we all know that the Ashes of Creation alpha testing and planned launch has seen delays and that Intrepid has been rolling out a string of dev blogs and videos in the meantime. But wouldn’t you still like to give the studio a couple hundred dollars for some concept art of cosmetic items? That seems to be what’s being banked on with the latest set of rotating rewards for pre-ordering the title, as the game’s store will drop its current pre-order bundles and add in the new Beastmasters of Niküa set on April 4th.

“A new group of cosmetic items for Ashes of Creation is coming to shore! Latent magic left from the apocalypse has seeped into the waters and lands of Niküa, imbuing the ecology with powerful energies. As such, the Niküa islands are fatal for the inexperienced. To be a Beastmaster is to be an exemplar of the Niküan’s might and perseverance, while recognizing their place and role in nature as a whole. This profound insight creates an unshakable bond, and to see a beast and its master fighting in concert is to witness killer instinct in its purest form.”

If you want to grab the specialized fishing boat and reed hut design for yourself, it’ll cost you a cool $375 for the Voyager Plus package. Lower pre-order tiers are also available, of course, if you’re all right with not getting things like a full costume set and a giant otter to serve as a mount.

The fluff things like the valentine’s day stuff they did last February was fine IMO, but this looks like the kind of thematic gear and items I’d want to see obtainable in the actual game. Hope no one looking forward to playing a Nikua actually wanted a house or boat like that.

time limited store items for a game still in development are not a sign of good things to come

Damn, I usually don’t buy anything from stores before I actually check it out in the game and see if it fits my character, is it done well enough, does it have any weird details and whatnot… And here we are, with a bunch of expensive stuff for a game that doesn’t exist yet. Maybe it’s just not my cup of tea but it bugs me.

I’m with you. Just can’t get behind this game with these kind of things going on. Games need to earn my dollar now a days, too many EA scams and let downs for this old fart.
