The Weekly Raid: Are You Hyped For Ashes Of Creation?

The Unreal Engine 4 powered MMORPG Ashes of Creation launched its Kickstarter campaign yesterday (May 1st, 2017) and surpassed its initial $750,000 ask in less than 12 hours. That makes it one of fastest large-scale campaigns to hit its target in crowdfunding history. Hype and interest in the MMORPG genre is certainly alive and well!

Ashes of Creation, unlike most crowdfunded MMORPGs, already has a team in place and that shows in its videos. Will Ashes of Creation Make MMORPGs Great Again?

So are YOU hyped for Ashes of Creation? Have you, or are you, going to back the game on Kickstarter? Let us know in the comments section below!

Lifelong gamer always looking for the next virtual adventure. I'm still waiting for the next big MMORPG. Until then, you can find me hopping between multiple games.

  • Personally no due to the founder's background, but if it actually happens as promised I'll subscribe. Some very cool ideas but I would never pledge due to reasons explained in the podcast

    Waiting for things to materialise in a hands-on form.

    Someone raised an interesting point on reddit - the videos showed look 'tooo' polished. Make of that what you wish.

    I'm not totally convinced yet but the game could be something the genre really needs at the moment as you mentioned in your podcast (great discussion about the topic there btw).

    The guy's background is makes me a bit suspicious but I give points that they did Kickstarter video with their names and faces unlike many other projects does. If this project would be a scam these guys would have no future in gaming (or many other) business anymore - I don't think they would take that risk.

    But as always, software projects fails very often. There's a risk the game gets never finishes and that's what the supporters has to be prepared for. Unfortunately it often looks like people realizes this once it is too late (Early Access and Kickstarter projects) on whines about it in forums.

    To me it is important that developers keeps supporters updated; publish dev diaries and videos what is going on and what is coming in near future, and what kind of problems they are struggling with.

    Looks interesting and I hope you guys keeps followers up to date what is going on in this project's development.

    hard to be hyped for something a few years away, but I'll keep it in the back of my mind with a good chunk of hope

    Oh Oh Oh! Is this the game that's got Sean 'SO PUMPED!'???

    Please, please, pleaseeee say it is!!!111!!1one11!

    He said it includes ‘sweet features’, which is something I always wanted in an MMORPG. He said this game is going to be amazing, and 'amazing' was in CAPS so it must be true.

    I'm soooo excited! I can't wait! I need to bro-fist someone, but you're all cynics... and trolls, pfft! 😀

    Seriously though, I find buying games to be risky enough for me. At least I have Steam's refund policy to fall back on for any misguided/ill-informed/stupid decisions made.
