Ashes of Creation Apocalypse

Apocalypse Logo.png

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse (also referred to as Alpha-1 phase 1 and APOC)[2] will focus on the action side of combat.[6][7][8]

Apocalypse will be a free-to-play mode, so you won't even have to be a backer necessarily to play in it.[14]Steven Sharif

In Apocalypse, you land in a world on the brink of destruction. The only way out is to be the last one standing. It is an arena based game which will support a number of different game modes, including battle royale-style gameplay, castle sieges, and gigantic monster hordes! Not only is Ashes of Creation: Apocalypse an exciting standalone experience, but we're also using it to help test new tech and features for Ashes of Creation - the more you play, the closer we'll get to the final launch of our MMO. Not only that, but any rewards you earn in Apocalypse will carry over to the MMO as well! Our high fantasy setting, the vast array of gear and spells, and our massively destructible environments make for an experience unlike anything you’ve played. Hop in, stay alive, and win the glory.[15]

Ashes of Creation board game

An Ashes of Creation board game is scheduled for release at around the time of the MMORPG Beta phase.[3]

Just to be clear, a board game doesn’t impact any mmo development. They are 2 very different sets of employees.[16]Steven Sharif

It is a resource management and combat game with an action economy.[3]

  • Each player chooses a Class and attempts to build a Guild that takes over a server on Ashes of Creation.[3]
  • The more guild members, the more action tokens the guild will receive. These tokens can be spent on actions on the game board and during battles.
  • Guilds gain income by constructing Caravans.
  • Players have a pool of resources that they keep secret.
    • Followers.
    • Gold.
    • Combat resource (gained from guilds participating in PvP).

There are several types of combat in the game.[3]

  • Attacking caravans.
  • Arenas (instanced).
  • Guild wars.
  • Raid bosses.
    • Attacking a raid boss makes the game co-op. Other guilds can then join in to fight the boss.
    • The raid boss' level is based on the level that the game board is at.

The game comes as a complete set with an adjustable map that players construct every game.[3]

  • The map is comprised of six components that are placed together.
  • The game board is made of of zones that evolve as players complete activities and actions.
  • Over forty different buildings can be built.

There game comes with six standardized characters.[3]

  • As a character levels they become more powerful.

Players compete for server firsts.[3]

The game is playable by two to five players.[3]

  • The game will last about 30 minutes per player.

There will be expansions, but the base game can be played stand-alone.[3]

  • Expansions will come with additional map tiles with new locations to gain resources from.
    • Map tiles from expansions can be switched out.
  • Expansions come with additional structures.
  • Expansions will have characters that are race-specific to Ashes of Creation.
    • Each race will have certain advantages and abilities.

It is undecided if certain editions of the game will come with Cosmetics.[3]
