The Beta-1 and Beta-2 testing phases of Ashes of Creation will be short.[1]

The game should be pretty much done (at beta stage) and final polish and stuff like that being put in. We don't want people to get totally burnt out on the game before we actually release. So once we get to the beta phases it should be short and sweet.[1]Jeffrey Bard

Beta testing of Ashes of Creation (the MMORPG) will be closed.[3]

Early access

Ashes of Creation early access packages:

Pre-order packs

Under the Frost pre-order packs.[15]

Countless miles away, among the perilous peaks of frozen mountains, ancient things lie still. The inexorable hand of civilization reaches outward, and yet, in the rush for progress, many find themselves lost in the white as the cold closes in around them. This land is ever eager to bring any outsiders into its icy clutches.[15]

Pre-order packs are available from the Cosmetic store.[14]

We offer cosmetics for players who wish to support the project early. The exclusive nature of the limited availability is something I think collectors value. If you buy cosmetics as an MMO player, I know I enjoyed if the cosmetic is rare and not every girl at the party is wearing the same dress. In addition, these cosmetics are used to populate the world through NPC variants and color/texture changes so their offering aligns with our production schedule. The good thing about these packs is they contain no P2W advantages and there is no box cost, so from a mechanics standpoint you do not need to buy them to excel in the game on launch. And also, there are comparable and subjectively more grand cosmetics achievable in game as well.[16]Steven Sharif

Participation

Alpha and Beta participation is expected to grow with the sale of pre-order packs.[18]

Server wipes

Alpha and Beta servers will be wiped prior to launch.[19]

  • Servers may also be wiped between individual tests, unless the developers require progression to be saved for certain spot tests.[20]

As a general rule, if the testing phase contains the word Alpha, it is safe to assume there will likely be wipes.[21]Steven Sharif
