Dragon-riding arena PvP game Century Age of Ashes launches December 2, eyes console and mobile in 2022


It’s been quite some time since we checked in on Century: Age of Ashes, Playwing’s multiplayer arena dogfighting game in which players take to the skies on the backs of dragons and duke it out online. Readers will recall the game first cropped up in January and has run a couple of beta tests, one of which our Not So Massively columnist Tyler hoppped into. The devs had further noted that the game would be going into early access in February but then delayed that launch into April.

As you might have surmised, April early access didn’t happen, as the team announced in August that the game would go directly from testing to launch, with plans to release in November. The announcement also detailed the addition of baby dragons and a new Spoils of War game mode which sees player teams trying to steal gold from enemy creatures and real-life opponents. This mode, incidentally, appears to have replaced the Survival game mode that was previewed in a gameplay trailer back in March.

What’s that? November is almost done and there’s still no Century release date? That’s because the game once again pushed its launch forward to Thursday, December 2nd. The game itself will launch free-to-play but is offering three different founder’s packs for those who want extra goodies like skins, Gems, and XP boosts among other things. Furthermore, Playwing announced in October its plans to release on consoles and mobile devices next year, featuring cross-platform play and cross-progression between PC and console players.

For those who are curious about Century’s whole deal, the devs held a gameplay livestream showcasing all three of its game modes, which we’ve embedded below.
