Ashes of Creation (MMORPG)

4 posts in this topic

Goal of 750k has already been hit within 12 hours.

Kickstarter is up.  The core game is already funded by the founder/devs and the kickstarter is just for stretch goals/additional features.

Website: https://www.ashesofcreation.com/

Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1791529601/ashes-of-creation-new-mmorpg-by-intrepid-studios?ref=category_location

Official Discord: https://discord.gg/ashesofcreation (sneak peeks and exclusives can be found here)

Google docs of information known (huge source of knowledge on the game): https://docs.google.com/document/d/14luppZ3Ub8jmcw_aK65QWxYY4xa8qAo9zRfpYWBxOXE/edit

More videos at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfbi2EvzQmIJ55TJvZumNZw/featured

Ashes of Creation is being made with Unreal Engine 4 and will be an open world MMORPG that is "themebox" a themepark with sandbox elements.  The game will have a node system where regions level up which unlock new content in the world, trigger world bosses, or other events.  The devs think of this as "choose your own adventure" where the players affect what happens to the server and no two servers will be the same.  The game will be monthly subscription based ($15 USD).

The game has been in development for a bit more than a year.  Kickstarter alpha is planned for 2018 (no NDA) while there are currently weekly random and selected drawings for late 2017 alpha (under NDA).

Also there is a referral system so if you want you can use mine to register https://www.ashesofcreation.com/ref/skullhead51/ .  Note that referrals do work for kickstarter so 15% value at release will go to the referral's credits for subscriptions and cash shop cosmetics.  It can also be withdrawn as cash but I intend to put it towards subscriptions. :)

 

Edit: I should probably mention if you register on the website, they have weekly draws you are automatically entered into for the "friends and family alpha" which is suppose to be in Q4 2017 but is under NDA.

This does look interesting in concept, but I'm not about to jump in and just believe what's told to me buy dev's these days. Still, as kickstartes go, this at least looks like one to take more seriously.

Yeah and there are a lot of mmorpgs in progress right now too.  The only reason I paid attention to this was because the person who put the studio together (Steven Sharif) was an old Archeage player (went by in-game name Sorcerer) on the server I played on and the guild leader of one of the most powerful guilds at the time (The White Order).  Basically he was loaded both irl and in-game so he was the biggest whale at the time you could say. I think #1 most geared player at the time and probably half the server hated him if not more considering the drama surrounding him and his guild lol.  Rumour is that he got tired of archeage (probably because of the repeated screw ups of Trion) and decided to make his own game.  Though people did spin it like he rage quit the game lol.  I don't think anyone took him seriously but now he has a bunch of people from old MMORPG development teams so....

Still no idea how he was able to make millions and at the same time lead an extremely active guild for months.
