Hoping to see some “tasteful nudity” in Ashes of Creation? That’s not going to happen, according to Intrepid Studio’s recent development update video. Neither is a tidal system, apparently, so no prowling the beach at low tide in your birthday suit.
Still, there is a lot to be gleaned from this hour-plus video in which the team focuses on talking about the engineering side of things (making Ashes of Creation run on a wide range of computers), new iterations of the minimalist user interface, updated Elven architecture, slapping armor on different body types, and the creation of four-legged dragons.
There was also a question-and-answer session in which topics such as the tides and nudity came up. Other questions involved how caravans worked, the possibility of dynamic ship destruction, the public test realm, exclusive quests, exotic weapons, and player progression. Fan site Ashes Post has a great breakdown of the livestream for those looking for the full scoop.
