Ashes of Creation revels in the majesty, the lore, and the creation of the Beer Bear mount

Ashes of Creation seems to really be in love with this particular mount they’ve made. It’s a bear mount. A bear mount with two immense beer kegs attached to its saddle. His name is Mug. He is the Beer Bear.

Intrepid Studios has gone all in on this particular mount, with an entire short story lore posting as well as a video which shows the mount’s creation from start to finish and its performance in-game. The mount itself looks like a strong and swift steed, and it presumably brings the party everywhere it goes owing to the beer kegs it carries. At least, I assume as much; the video closes with a feast full of folks as the Beer Bear and its owner hang out. Really, is it a party unless there’s a drink-hauling bear? I posit that it’s not.

This is a weird thing to focus on, but focus on it you can in both text form and video form.

I like the animations on the mount, and how the player moves while riding it. Nice attention to detail. Character dance animations at the end still need some work.

Seeing all the characters dancing and feasting at the end was pretty encouraging for the game! (Sorry, I know it’s about a mount, but dancing!)

It’s basically an advertisement for one of their November cosmetic items (https://ashesofcreation.com/news/2019-11-05-bounties-of-the-verdant-keeper) and pre-order packages.

Edit: I’m dumb and just got done linking things on Reddit so forgot how to format a link on here, rip.

That is a really nice bear mount, but can they add actual content to the game so we can alpha/beta test it, as WoW as proven having a good art team is not enough to make a game good.

I’m guessing Castle Siege will hopefully become playable in Apocalypse by the end of Q1 and then Alpha 1 should be sometime later in the year.

But that’s just wishful thinking and not so much a prediction.

Wait, when did WoW get a good art team?

In your opinion, apparently never.
