Intrepid Studios, makers of the highly anticipated upcoming MMORPG Ashes of Creation, have revealed that Ashes of Creation Apocalypse, a new competitive and cooperative multiplayer game linked directly to the world of Ashes of Creation, will launch in open beta for free on Dec. 18 for Windows PC. Pitting 100s of players at a time against each other in a massive world of high fantasy and all-out warfare, Ashes of Creation Apocalypse builds upon and refines many of the core systems at the heart of Ashes of Creation while letting players experience its stunning action and visuals right away.
Ashes of Creation Apocalypse delivers a self-contained, standalone experience for fans of competitive action, combat, and chaos. The game will launch with a full-fledged battle royale mode in which 100 players will duke it out with destructive weapons and magic until the last person is left standing. After release, new unique modes will be introduced, letting 200 players join forces in massive castle siege battles, as well as co-op horde mode missions in which small groups must fight off ravenous hordes of vicious demons.
“We are very excited to stand next to our partners at Intrepid Studios in taking the next step on the path of bringing Ashes of Creations to Europe. With the release of Ashes of Creation Apocalypse we will be providing our players their first action-combat experiences in Verra for free. European players will be able to register through our dedicated website and from the 18th of December can royally battle their friends on our trusted My.com Gamecenter. Thanks to the global server structure of Apocalypse, European players will be able to challenge and engage players from all around the world without restrictions.” said Volker Boenigk, Head of Products at My.com
To further reinforce the bridge that Ashes of Creation Apocalypse creates to Ashes of Creation, every cosmetic item that players earn or buy while playing Ashes of Creation Apocalypse will be added to their Ashes of Creation account for use in the MMORPG when it goes live.
To recap: Ashes of Creation Apocalypse is a precursor to Ashes of Creation. It’s high fantasy battle royale and a cooperative horde mode experience and a massive siege warfare destruction-fest, all in one. Players around the world can play with and against each other, with no region lock in place. All of this will connect to Ashes of Creation when it arrives. And it’s free!
