Alpha-0 starting area
One of the important aspects of color play is going to be the distinguishing factor between different Underrealms and the regions that exist in the world: Their color influences set them apart from different regions. – Steven Sharif
Alpha-0 classes, races and genders
- Quatto giocabili archetipi: Cleric, Mage, Ranger, Tank.
- Due scelte di razze: Kaelar, Empyrean.
- Selezione del sesso.
- Livellamento was from level 1 to 10.
- New equipment dropped.
- There was a tier-based skill progression where players applied points into individual skills.
Alpha-0 artisan classes
The weapon use ability (precision combo/quicktime event) system is in Alpha-0 but it is a different iteration to what was shown at PAX West 2017. Due to time constraints leading up to Alpha 0, the success range of this system was widened and the UI component was disabled. The plan moving forward is to continue to evolve the system in a fun and more engaging direction based on community feedback.
- Many animations at the moment are first pass, and will be further fleshed out as development continues.
We want combat to be engaging, fun. What you're seeing in our pre-alpha we honestly have not spent a lot of time on combat. Most of this pre-alpha has been spent on establishing core technical features for our proprietary back-end solutions for making a MMO in Unreal. – Steven Sharif
Weapon use ability status
- A revised weapon use combo system was present in Alpha-1.
- The weapon use ability that was originally shown at PAX West 2017 was reduced to a basic form in Alpha-0.
- The new combo system will not have the quicktime event that was seen in PAX West 2017.
- This is referred to as Combo system, Combat skills, and Combat tree in Alpha-1 preview and early testing.
Alpha-0 party size
- Water area is considered playable area, but the exact area of land versus water is not known at this time.
480 square kilometers; which is pretty large comparatively to other MMORPGs out there. Now that does not include the lapped spaces: So that is the Underrealm and the portion of the world that it encompasses, which could probably easily take up an additional hundredish square kilometers I would imagine. – Steven Sharif
- The Alpha-0 map was a 4km x 4km area (16 km2).
- The Ashes of Creation Apocalypse battle royale map was 2.5km x 2.5km (6.25 km2).
- The Alpha-1 zone is almost 100 km2 in size. This is about 17% of the total world size.

Alpha-0 key raffles
When getting real-time feedback, we want a wide sample of opinions from people that cannot afford to spend four or five hundred dollars on the Braver of Worlds, to the people that can... We want to get a wide, diverse audience from a purchase standpoint, even people that aren't even invested in the game at all, that's why we raffle out to registered users, or just on stream.. – Steven Sharif
Alpha-0 end date
Alpha-0 security systems
- These systems collect user data and flag abnormal activities for inspection. This combined with player reporting functions generates a live "heat map" that draws attention to unusual behavior.
- Players caught cheating will be banned.
Alpha-0 graphics system
UE4 allows us to do from a graphical fidelity standpoint is create a beautiful world on the front end.
