Glorious Ashes Community,
I am proud to report, that the development for Ashes of Creation is on-schedule and strong. On December 15th, 2017, just 6 months from our crowdfunding, we began our Friends & Family (Alpha Zero) testing phases - this is the fastest that any project of this size has ever gone into public testing. Alpha Zero was primarily a test of our custom networking and back-end solutions, and we’ve made some massive improvements as a result of it. We allowed IGN access to the Alpha Zero test, so if you didn’t get an opportunity to log in, you can see their news article here.
On February 9th we did a live stream playthrough of Alpha Zero on our Twitch and uploaded to our YouTube channel which you can also find below. This playthrough was not intending to show a finished product, but instead to keep the community updated with the progress we are making. Everyone at the studios, is driven by the unbelievable passion of our amazing community. You are our motivation.
As we move further into 2018, we have begun to hire more staff onto the Intrepid team, and have launched our studio website for recruitment. We could use your help to spread the word about Ashes, and the team behind its production. We are always searching for passionate and talented developers to join our ranks, and help make MMORPGs great once more. So if you haven't already, help spread the word about Ashes of Creation and Intrepid Studios by posting on social media and telling your friends! We appreciate you and the support and dedication you have shown Ashes <3
Dive into our first lore blog, telling the story of Dillia during the fall of Verra. The first of many short story lore blogs, we intend to release in the coming months. Explore the released Ashes of Creation class list and read up on how these roles will influence your play experience on in the Class blog on Ashes of Creation. Read about the city hall in this blog focusing on the role of government and its citizens in Verra. There is no building more powerful or magnetic than the city hall in Ashes.

We have officially launched the Ashes of Creation pre-order store! The store offers 4 unique and limited packages, which grant access to our Alpha and Beta phases. Each month these packages will change, offering a limited time cosmetic set. These cosmetics will change every month on the 2nd all the way up until launch. If you own a previous month's package or are a Kickstarter or summer backer, you are able to add these cosmetics as add-ons. Today is the last day for the packages and cosmetics below!
We are currently getting ready for GDC (Game Developers Conference) in San Francisco this March. We will be showing a slice of our current pre-alpha progress at the Unreal Engine booth, doing some recruiting and getting caught up on what everyone has been doing this last year. If you happen to be going to GDC, make sure to stop by Epic's booth and say hello!
Everyone here at Intrepid is committed to creating the MMORPG of your dreams, and we are hard at work building Ashes. We cannot thank you all enough for the passion and support you have shown this project. We have a long road ahead of us, and we will continue to keep you updated with the progress of our development. With love from everyone at Intrepid, Thank you!
