Ashes Of Creation Alpha 1 Starts In September, Trailer Showing Action Combat Released

Ashes of Creation will make an appearance at this year's Gamescom, taking place from August 21-25 in Colgone, Germany. Intrepid Studios, the studio behind the ambitious fantasy MMORPG has also revealed that Alpha 1 testing will kick off in September 2018.

Set to last seven months, Alpha 1 will test some of AoC's most exciting features. 100-player open world battlegrounds and 200-player castle sieges will both be playable during Alpha 1. A PvE mode called City Horde Mode in which players defend towns from NPC invaders will also be included. We've also learned that Ashes of Creations will not include daily quests, a feature that more and more MMORPGs have come to rely on as a form of recycled content.

Ashes of Creation fansite The AoC Dungeon has provided a detailed post on everything Alpha 1 has in store, as well as Intrepid's plans for Gamescom this week. Interepid Studios themselves have put out an exciting new trailer that shows off some of the game's action combat. Be sure to check it out below!
