Programma di rilascio

Da Ashes of Creation Wiki.
(Reindirizzamento da Pre-alpha)

Our team is dedicated to providing the MMORPG we all have been waiting for. Thanks to our community’s incredible support, we successfully pinpointed critical systems in need of revision for Alpha One through the use of our Apocalypse testing ground. After taking the time needed to finalize these revisions, we are happy to announce that starting August 20, 2019 at 11:00 AM PDT the Divine Gateways will open once more for limited Apocalypse testing sessions. We can’t wait to hear your feedback on the updated performance, user interface, art iteration, and combat changes that you’ll see during this phase. We’ve learned a lot from our previous testing and we are using that knowledge to ensure smoother testing periods moving forward. Once we have successfully vetted our back-end changes with Apocalypse during August and September, we will have better insight for future dates involving Siege Mode, Horde Mode, and the highly anticipated MMORPG’s Alpha One. We hope you'll join us for this incredible journey![1]Steven Sharif

The Ceneri della creazione release schedule is subject to change.[2]

Quarter two is no longer going to be the proposed date for alpha one delivery. The delay will not be in a number of years it'll be in a number of months. However we are not going to- we give this commitment going forward to the community that when we give you a date we are going to be confident 100% that we can hit that date, which means that those core systems will need to be complete and stood up in a QA format or setting to where we are confident that that date's going to be deliverable.[23]Steven Sharif

Early access

Ceneri della creazione early access packages:

Ceneri della creazione

Ceneri della creazione (AoC) è un MMORPG in corso di sviluppo, ambientato in un mondo high fantasy aperto.[30]

Ceneri della creazione è un MMORPG in corso di sviluppo ambientato in un mondo fantasy nel quale le scelte dei giocatori plasmeranno e definiranno il mondo attorno a loro.[30]

Ashes of Creation è una prospettiva unica dell'esperienza MMO. La struttura del nostro mondo è dinamica e costruita per rispondere alle azioni dei nostri giocatori. Le città si innalzeranno e cadranno, la loro popolazione sarà basata sulla storia del mondo man mano che i giocatori la creano. Le missioni si sbloccheranno quando queste popolazioni si riuniranno, i loro bisogni cresceranno, e i segreti verranno scoperti.[31]

Visto che la struttura degli NPC del mondo è stabilita in tempo reale, i giocatori avranno la possibilità di distruggere quello che hanno creato, preparando la strada per nuovi sviluppi, nuove popolazioni, e cambiamenti reali. Strategie politiche ed intrighi giocheranno un ruolo veramente reale nella struttura del vostro mondo.[31]

I giorni dei mondi statici sono finiti, d'ora in poi ci sarà il cambiamento.[31]

Alpha-1

Alpha-1 is a testing release of the Ashes of Creation MMORPG.[35] Alpha-1 will test:

It is possible that Alpha-1 is released prior to Ashes of Creation Apocalypse horde mode.[41]

Alpha-2

Alpha-2 is the Persistent alpha.[16][17] This release is expected to include the following:

Beta testing

The Beta-1 and Beta-2 testing phases of Ceneri della creazione will be short.[47]

The game should be pretty much done (at beta stage) and final polish and stuff like that being put in. We don't want people to get totally burnt out on the game before we actually release. So once we get to the beta phases it should be short and sweet.[47]Jeffrey Bard

Beta testing of Ceneri della creazione (the MMORPG) will be closed.[48]

Head start

Head start grants early access one or two days prior to the live launch of Ceneri della creazione for crowdfunding backers at the Founder level and above.[49]

The point of head start is twofold: One for testing, making sure that the live launch servers pre-wipe are good; and then Two, it's a way to stagger the population move into the game. Because if you have servers with 10,000 concurrent player capability and you have everyone logging in at the exact same time, that is a problem I've never seen an MMO tackle successfully, ever.[50]Steven Sharif

Headstart servers

The number of head start servers is estimated to be three. This is subject to change.[51]

  • There will be an OCE headstart server.[52]

Headstart limitations

The game functionality is limited during the head start period so that players cannot decide the world-scape earlier than others.[53]

  • During the head start, the node system will be deactivated.
  • Head start specific servers are also planned.
  • It will not be possible to secure player housing during the headstart period due to the deactivation of the node system.

NDA

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse battle royale stress testing NDA was lifted on 19 October 2018 at 6:30PM (PDT).[7][55]

Stress testers may discuss their experience. However visuals, including streams, video recording and screenshots for the stress test are under NDA. Unlike other studios, our community quite literally is first in, to Verra. And the stress test might be messy... Only visuals are under NDA.[57][58]Steven Sharif

Participation

Alpha and Beta participation is expected to grow with the sale of pre-order packs.[60]

Server wipes

Alpha and Beta servers will be wiped prior to launch.[61]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse early access trailer.[63][64]

The standalone prequel to the upcoming epic MMORPG Ashes of Creation - both a testing ground for new systems and content, as well as a unique last-man-standing action game where magic, steel, and chaos reign supreme in a high fantasy, free-to-play experience.[63]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse (also referred to as APOC)[65] is a free-to-play[66] matchmaking-based arena game with three primary modes.[67]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse utilizes action-based combat.[67][15][69]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse early access is available for download on the official website and on Steam.[62][63]

Steam really provides a great platform that reaches a lot of different users all of which you know exists in different demographics and interests; and it makes sense from a matchmaking game standpoint for a game like APOC to really funnel as many players as possible, because it gives us the most amount of data. It allows us to kickoff matches very regularly and it also introduces people who might not normally be introduced this early on to what Ashes of Creation is as a IP. As a MMORPG development it gives us access to those people. So that was really kind of what led us to you know change our minds with regards to our approach to steam with Apocalypse. With regards to the MMORPG, there are currently still no plans for the MMORPG to be on steam.[74]Steven Sharif
