Alpha-1 availability

15 August 2018 was the last day for purchases of Alpha-1 through Intrepid pre-order packs (History).[5]

  • The developers are considering re-opening sales of Alpha-1 packs in the future.[16]

One of the main reasons for evaluating the pretests prior to opening up A1 sales again was to see the stability of the multi server selection code, and how our individual server deployments held up. That, along with our world concurrency and individual server performances did indeed hold up to our expectation, and gives me the first green light for consideration of opening future sales. You can expect more info on this during January.[16]Steven Sharif

Ashes of Creation

Ashes of Creation это находящаяся в разработке MMORPG, действие которой происходит в открытом фентезийном мире.[17]

Ashes of Creation это находящаяся в разработке MMORPG действие которой происходит в открытом фентезийном мире, менять и определять который будут действия игроков.[17]

Ashes of Creation уникальный взгляд на MMO. Наша структура мира является динамичной и построена с целью реагирования на действия игроков. Города будут строиться и разрушаться, их население будет основываться на истории мира созданного игроками. Квесты будут открываться при росте населения, их нужды растут, и открываются их секреты.[18]

В то время как структура NPC развивается в реальном времени, игроки будут иметь возможность разрушить то что они создали, открывая путь новому развитию, новому населению и реальным изменениям. Политическая борьба и интриги будут играть реальную роль в структуре вашего мира.[18]

Ушли дни статичных миров, настало время изменений.[18]

Alpha-1 playtest schedule

I am happy to announce the dates for Alpha One testing. This schedule will include Alpha One testers for a 4-day stress test starting on December 18, 2020. Now this first test will remain under NDA, as there will still likely be some considerable polish and bug fixing necessary. I will of course provide some recorded footage of the event so the community at large can see the testing. The gap between the December test and the February test will provide our team with the time necessary to iterate and fix bugs, then in March we will aim to have a 1-week test stood up in preparation for the final month-long test in April.[19]Steven Sharif

Prior to these testing dates, users who have Alpha One access will receive emails with their testing instructions and a known issues list, along with the testing focuses and objectives. As I said, the Alpha One for Ashes of Creation is intended to test the base mechanics of many systems. We leave much room to iterate depending on how the testing data goes.[19]Steven Sharif

Подробнее...

The term "alpha" is a tricky one, and it typically has 2 meanings in gaming. The development meaning for alpha is a point in the process where we are ready to test the fundamental systems in their core form, without polish and without much of the content. Then, there is the external or "marketing" term for alpha. This is typically applied to Eastern-ported MMORPGs, when in fact that is a completed game being localized for a region, and not really indicative of a true development alpha. As you may know by now, game development has many stages - from the initial tech demos to the pre-production and pre-alpha states, then on to the alphas and betas and eventually launch.[19]Steven Sharif

I want to make emphatically clear, our alphas and betas are true development alphas and betas, and some have said I am crazy to allow these phases to be seen without an NDA…maybe I am crazy? lol… But I am trusting the community of gamers out there to get a glimpse into the process, and understand the long road ahead for what will eventually be worth the wait. Given time and talent, amazing things can happen, so make sure you help us in communicating that we are in open development which means people get to see the bare bones before the meat. And look, I know people see our 4K footage and say, "This looks better than most released games!", but trust me when I say, you ain't seen nothin’ yet.[19]Steven Sharif

Alpha-1 testing zone (Alpha island)

Alpha-1 testing tropical zone featuring a war beast and a tribe of pigmy goblins.[29]

This is a rather large tropical area; and what we use some of the creatures for is kind of like establishing character for different parts of this tropical place. So that even though it's the same biome, it feels different when you are going from place to place based on what's there and how those things are interacting with the environment.[30]Джеффри Бард

Alpha-1 testing takes place in a zone to the north west of the world map.[31] This zone has many islands and a mainland area.[32]

  • There are 12 different (sub)zones in the Alpha-1 testing location.[30]
  • The Alpha-1 zone is almost 100 km2 in size.[30][32] This is approximately 20-25% of the total world size.[30][10]
    • Traversing the width of the zone (10 km) on a mount would take about 30 minutes.[33]
  • Alpha island (also called Alpha-0 island) was the first open-world testing zone for Alpha-1 participants.[34]
  • A new tropical/jungle zone was added for the December 2020 Alpha-1 preview tests.[31][29] This zone replaces the previous alpha island testing zone.[30]
  • Temporary teleportation points will be present in early tests until ships are introduced later in the alpha testing.[35]

Alpha-1 participation

There are slightly under 10,000 participants in Alpha-1 testing.[36]

Intrepid packs were discontinued to keep the participating testers below the 10k threshold so as not to exceed potential issues on our backend. My statement just now was, if testing goes fine and we are able to handle the number of players fine, I do not see an issue in offering additional intrepid packs. Alpha One was not exclusive. We did indeed end sales for the past 2 years.[37]Steven Sharif

Alpha-1 servers

Сервера Alpha-1 будут размещены в следующих регионах.[39]

В Ashes of Creation Apocalypse выбор сервера определяется лидером группы. Выбранный ими регион применится к их друзьям и отряду.[41]

Одновременно на серверах Alpha-1 смогут находиться 1,500 игроков.[15]

Вайпы серверов

Alpha и Beta сервера будут полностью очищены перед релизом.[42]

Alpha-1 NDA

На Alpha-1, Alpha-2, Beta-1, Beta-2 NDA не распространяется.[43]

Присутствующие на стресс-тесте могут обсуждать свои впечатления. Однако графический контент, включая стриминг, записанное видео и скриншоты стресс-теста находятся под NDA. В отличие от других студий, наше сообщество в буквальном смысле первые кто попал в Верру. И стресс-тест может быть не самым гладким... NDA распространяется только на графический контент.[47][48]Steven Sharif
